Business problem

Due to missing modularisation it was not possible to enhance the current editing system. It was required to design and develop a system that meets internal performance standards and supports strategic planning.

Business value generated

Architecture, design, development and test of a Rich Internet Application with a Grails Backend. The solution consolidates many news feeds in near-realtime and with high frequency. Several options for interaction and server push messaging where provided to meet constant stability and scalable user experience. Leading journalists have access to a configurable control-system for automatic processing of incoming and outgoing business news. Furthermore various filtering options, archiving functions and text generators were implemented. As a result workflow efficiency and productivity improved which leads to further expansion of industry leadership for our client.
