In addition to enhancing the UX of the product, our team migrated the web technologies of the current product to accommodate larger scale and performance. This involved migrating a monolithic app architecture, that had performed well for a few years but was encountering performance bottlenecks, to a more modern and scalable API and client architecture. Along with architecture migration, we transitioned many pieces of the platform to performant open source web technologies such as Ruby on Rails, ReactJS, and Postgresql. These migrations helped to position the product well for scale to additional communities throughout the United States.
Individual School & Partner Portals
Schools and Partners each have unique experiences that make it easy for them to share their arts related data.
Data Dashboard & Scoring
Data collected from the portals is displayed on each School and Partner page for public view.
The data collected is used in PDF generated reports that allow for easy sharing.
A robust API architecture will make it easier to integrate with other data sources when they become available.
Leveraging two open source data stores, Postgresql and ElasticSearch, allows for more performant access to read data for the map search UX and data science analytics.
Search, Filter, and Sorting
We integrated Elasticsearch to improve performance and allow for more advanced queries when searching for a school or partner.
