PHP-based, Laravel is a free, open-source framework intended for the development of modern web applications. Following the MVC architectural pattern, Laravel includes a modular packaging system with dependency manager, various ways for accessing relational databases, utilities that aid in application deployment and maintenance, and much more. It’s widely adopted, with a robust community and eco-system behind it.
It can also be argued that Laravel is uniquely qualified with regard to building enterprise-level apps compared to any other PHP framework. For one, enterprise apps include dependency and complexity, which Laravel’s Dependency Injection Container handles deftly. Two, background jobs processing often comes alongside enterprise web applications, and out of any major PHP framework, Laravel has the out-of-the-box queue system.
Basically what this means is that no matter how you look at it, your risks are mitigated with Laravel. It’s open-source and thus no costly licenses; it’s battled tested and ran by Fortune 500 companies so you know it’ll scale as your needs do; and it’s widely adopted so vendor lock-in isn’t a concern. That’s why we pursued as a focus of our technological expertise, and why we recommend it to you.
