Approach and Process
The client was looking for a software development team to augment their own in-house capacities. Selleo provided resources and skills with which the client was able to implement some of their backlog items earlier, faster and – most probably – cheaper than they would with their own resources only. We started the project with a kick-off collocated with the client team in Berlin, which ensured fairly close collaboration and good understanding of the project and the business as a whole. We have been using SCRUM for daily collaboration with the client team.
With more than 100 billion worldwide ad impressions per month and millions of game registrations, GameGenetics needed a solution which would allow their customers to track varied performance metrics for the campaigns run.
The platform provides an overview of advertising data and enables to track performance in real time on a single user friendly digital dashboard. The internal teams can easily gain access to the relevant metrics and effectively optimize the campaigns they run.
Modules and Features
The platform at its core consists of an interactive dashboard equipped with multiple charts and tables with several export functionalities.
The back-end of the application was developed in Ruby on Rails and AngularJS was used as a frontend library. The platform was integrated with an external service through an API to the Cassandra database. We also used Twitter Bootstrap, MySQL, HighCharts while implementing the project.
