Data Grid Store (DGS)
As we navigate through a world that's rapidly becoming more data-centric, our clients frequently grapple with the management of vast amounts of data stored in their databases - MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQL Server, Cassandra, and more. A common requirement is an ability to modify this data, a process that often entails developers having to repetitively create CRUD functionalities for numerous data sources. This is where the challenge truly lies - the routine, recurring nature of this task. It's a mundane process that drains developers of their time and energy, diverting their focus from the more priority tasks.
To tackle this issue head-on, we developed the DGS component. DGS is designed to turbocharge the development process, significantly reducing both costs and time. It simplifies the use of data access technologies, as well as relational and non-relational databases, and makes working with map-reduce frameworks a breeze. This powerful tool is our answer to the challenge, enabling developers to focus their energy on more creative and innovative tasks.
- Unified User Interface: DGS not only offers a unified interface for CRUD operations, but also manages access permissions seamlessly. If customization is required, DGS offers the flexibility to modify UI elements or forms according to your needs.
- API Support: DGS is designed to work efficiently in API mode, providing CRUD functionality like a RESTful API. The beauty of DGS is that you can operate in both modes - editor and API, giving you the best of both worlds.
- Extensive Database Support: With DGS, you have the flexibility to work with a wide range of relational and non-relational databases including MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQL Server, and Cassandra. Should you need to support another database or storage system, DGS allows you to create your own driver.
- Remote API and GraphQL Integration: DGS takes flexibility to a new level by allowing you to work with Remote API or GraphQL as if you were working directly with your own database.
- Automated CRUD Functionality: DGS takes care of the heavy lifting by automatically generating Create, Read, Update, and Delete (CRUD) operations for your data. This not only frees developers from repetitive tasks but also provides various ways to customize the data pipeline flow.
- Time and Cost Efficiency: By automating routine tasks and providing a unified interface for diverse data sources, DGS significantly reduces development time and associated costs, bringing immense value to your project.
Our client required a system to manage employee vacations and company expenses, with specific requirements for integration, user roles, and reporting. The estimated development time using Spring Boot was projected to be 30 days, which posed a challenge in terms of time and budget constraints.
By utilizing Festi and the Data Grid Store (DGS), we were able to streamline the development process and meet the client's requirements efficiently. The DGS provided a powerful component that allowed us to rapidly create the necessary management screens and implement key functionalities such as Google Workspace LDAP integration, ACL support, and customizable vacation types. This significantly accelerated the development timeline.
Thanks to the capabilities of Festi and DGS, we successfully delivered the fully functional system in just seven days, a fraction of the originally estimated time. The client was impressed with the speed and quality of the solution, as well as the cost savings achieved. By completing the project in such a short timeframe, we saved the client 87% of their projected budget, demonstrating the efficiency and effectiveness of the Festi framework and the DGS component.
