Challenges and Solutions

  • Balancing between two sides

    This project involved three different companies: Sway Group, CreatorIQ, and Solvd. We acted as a technical bridge between Sway and CIQ. Coordinating the work, our team migrated an influencer-facing platform to new software and provided a stronger connection to social APIs to the client

  • Time zone difference

    To ensure mutual understanding of the project, we arranged frequent Zoom calls. Though the partnership was remote, Solvd was accommodating to the time change. Our engineer worked off-hours to support the project contributing to the success of the final product

  • Dealing with high load due to increased user activity after email newsletter campaign

    First, we increased the parameter MaxRequestWorkers on the server. It allowed us to withstand a greater number of requests. But that was a temporary solution, so we continued with setting up instances in AWS. The type of instance determines its CPU capacity, memory, and storage. Our DevOps engineer (who was additionally involved specifically for this task) analyzed the load and set up the instance to “m4.xlarge”. Also, he configured Load Balancer. These activities secured the server and provided correct work during high load

Results

Solvd team successfully executed the integration process and left the Sway Dashboard stable and fully functional. We delivered the solution that satisfied both Sway Group and CreatorIQ. Both platform’s users haven’t experienced any troubles after integration, which is something we can be proud of. Positive results of the accomplished work resulted in continuous partnership.
