Like many of our projects, this one is for a customer who prefers to remain anonymous. Our customer is a startup company, founded by experts with deep experience in corporate employee performance improvement.
The project started with in-depth discussions about how the software should be designed to most effectively translate the expert vision into a working system. Our customer supplied drawings, documentation, and extensive explanations of this vision.
Oasis Digital then developed rough mockups, detailed mockups, and multiple iterations of the software.
To get a flavor of the software's capabilities, we have included a couple of screenshots. More details will be available once our customer publicly launches their product.
Our philosophy of innovation is slightly nuanced: we focused innovation on areas where it will generate value, then prefer well proven, off-the-shelf solutions for other parts of the system.
We applied this philosophy here, innovating primarily around an event-sourced "CQRS" architecture to make it possible to implement arbitrary calculations and analysis, retroactively rather than synchronously with data collection. Much of the technology stack is well proven and facilitated rapid development:
The server side of this application is written with Java 8, Spring, Hibernate, and numerous related libraries. The database system of record is PostgreSQL.
We realized early in the project that the desired dashboard features would be most effectively served by an OLAP system behind the scenes. We used a CQRS idea of a "projection" to perform incremental, asynchronous ETL processing,
Technologies: Angular, Java, Spring, Mondrian OLAP
Oasis Digital software powers the Life Science Lab at the St. Louis Science Center.
The demonstration project shows that a configurator can work well as a modern single-page-app, including a dynamic 3D model of the configured product.
