React Enterprise Architecture

Enterprise React is:

  • Architecting for large and growing applications
  • Increasing modularity and reusability
  • Choosing appropriate libraries and approaches
  • Managing large code bases
  • Handling cross-cutting concerns

Ready to Build Enterprise Grade Apps with React?

React powers the most highly used and visible apps on the planet. Companies like Uber, Lyft, Sony, and Microsoft trust React to build scalable applications for their customers. Building a great app requires knowledge of important concepts like:

  • state management
  • unidirectional data flow
  • library and dependency architecture
  • internationalization and localization
  • the concerns that come with XL- size code bases
  • aligning and coordinating work across teams and functions

Doing these things well means you stay productive and ship features on time. Missing the mark means dealing with dysfunction.

The 6 Dysfunctions of Enterprise Teams

#1 Requirement Reinterpretation

Requirements are never perfect. New requests create software ripple effects. New information on existing requirements may change the approach.

You could deliver more with less effort if your application was resilient to change.

#2 Shipping Dysfunction

Properly functioning teams ship on-time. Unanticipated change cascades and causes unplanned rework, wrecking schedules. Focusing on the wrong details or the wrong priorities ensures failure.

Missed milestones, constantly broken builds, and production outages are avoided with the right processes.

#3 Integration Woes

Ever notice tutorials integrate with simple, modern systems? Some people have it easy while you must integrate with heritage and legacy systems because that’s where the data lives.

Integrating Enterprise systems will always be challenging but doesn’t need to be a big hassle.

#4 Poor Production Performance

But, it works fine on my machine! Ignoring scale, differences in environments and lacking the right types of testing set you up for failure.

Troubleshooting is often time consuming, complex, and unbudgeted- but it doesn’t have to be this way.

#5 Acute Dependency Deprecation

Libraries come and go in the ever-changing JavaScript landscape. How do you mitigate the effects of unwelcome dependency change in the future?

Choosing libraries and dependencies that last for the full life cycle of your app may be unrealistic, but you can plan ahead with the right techniques.

#6 Missing Tribal Knowledge

Have you ever transitioned a project to another team but can’t get out of providing endless support? It’s no fun. It’s not easy to manage your work, while you are constantly at the beck and call of another team.

Project teams change over time. One person leaves, a new person comes. Design your application so the tribal knowledge stays in the app and not in someone’s head.
