Following are some of the things in NetSuite Implementation need to understand before going deep into suitescript 2.0:

1) Why SuiteScript 2.0?
Optimized performance, Code in modular structure which is easy to debug in modules and enhance the functionality with performance. Using a modular script loader like RequireJS will improve the speed and quality of your code.

2) Is SuiteScript 1.0 sufficient?
The SuiteScript 1.0 is based on native JavaScript but it is not able to utilize the benefits of new libraries and framework which are based on modular architecture. So, to create custom functionality, increase user productivity, and improve the performance of your NetSuite application the SuiteScript 1.0 needs more expansion.

For example, the N/record Module lets you interact with NetSuite records. The N/https Module lets you make https requests to external web services.

4)  From where these module came from?
The RequireJS and CommonJS are the javascript libraries which are written in modular architecture.RequireJS is a JavaScript file and module loader It is optimized for in-browser use, but it can be used in other JavaScript environments, like Rhino and Node.
