Speed

Accessibility

In developed countries internet speed and unlimited data roaming is taken for granted. This is not the case in most emerging markets like India, China, Africa and South America where internet is a scarce resource and the connection speeds are still quite slow in comparison to modern standards.

Jamstack websites and applications are more accessible than legacy web services for emerging markets. The biggest reason for this is their reduced size and optimized loading speeds which result in faster page loads with older devices and slow connections. This will make the internet more accessible for everyone regardless where they are.

Scalability

Jamstack websites and apps scale with the amount of users. With Jamstack scaling is only a matter of upgrading services for more resources with a click of a button. This becomes important since we can make websites which are ready to be scaled for millions of users without having to re-do the entire software code for better scalability.

Not only is Jamstack easy to scale it's also more cost effective to scale. You pay for the amount of resources you need and not for more.

Security

Jamstack websites are more secure than Wordpress since they're static. Static websites serve files which are pre-built and do not include similar dynamic rendering as Wordpress. Jamstack websites don't have similar 3rd party plugins as Wordpress which cause infamous security issues that require hours upon hours of patching and fixing.

Jamstack sites rely on third party services and APIs to deliver similar dynamic functionality as Wordpress. This is architecture is fundamentally a more secure approach than injecting 3rd party software code to your website software code.

Security is a really important aspect for any website, more so for enterprise websites. Jamstack will make your website more secure and reduce the costs for fixing plugin security issues and patching.

Future proof

Jamstack websites can utilize modern static site generators like Gatsby where most software code is written in Javascript. If you want to make a modern website in 2020 you will have to use Javascript anyway. It makes more sense to use a Javascript framework to build websites in the first place.

Using modern and future-proof technologies which are backed by millions of dollars of funding will make your website 100% future-proof. You don't want to build your web services on legacy technologies.
