Comparis - NextGen Front-End
How can technological legacies be disposed and technological leaps be mastered on Switzerland's largest comparison platform?
The question was posed during an architecture review, as the technologies in the frontend in particular were outdated and showed insufficient performance. Especially for a platform like Comparis the performance is of great importance, because a good conversion on the site depends directly on it and Google punishes bad performance when indexing.
Dispose of technological legacy
A major problem in many companies is that technological legacy is difficult to dispose of for two reasons. Firstly, the cost of new technologies in a complex environment is extremely difficult to master and secondly, the existing team is focused on existing technologies.
To solve this problem, a concept was developed to implement the new frontend architecture in collaboration with Deep Impact and Comparis. In this case, Comparis provided two backend developers, who acquired the new technological know-how within Deep Impact.
