  • Solution had to have the ability to interface with core hotel systems if required

Pharmacy Tribune is a highly interactive application where Speed and Performance are mission critical. A social media application such as this one requires lightning fast data processing and real time streaming data. Therefore, Supra’s Solutions Architecture team had several rounds of discussions with the client’s team to fully understand their current needs, workflows, and future pipeline. The outcome of this thorough process was a fully featured social media application with a robust backend capable autoscaling to meet demand. Keeping the requirements in mind, Supra decided upon the MEAN Stack (Angular 7 as a Frontend technology, Node.Js, Express.Js as a Backend technology, and MongoDB as a database). Socket programming was utilized to achieve instant data updates without blocking. Continuous Integration, Continuous Testing and Continuous Delivery was accomplished using various tools like Jenkins, Gitlab, Jira, Postman & other tools. Since the client was unable to predict initial traffic load on the site, Supra’s Solutions team decided to use Cloud hosting based on a linux platform. This allowed us to scale the server size based on site traffic- allowing us to maintain superior application performance and customer experience. The application also efficiently handles application and data security using various security and threat detection techniques, and transmitting data only encrypted channel using HTTPS protocol.
