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The question was posed during an architecture review, as the technologies in the front-end in particular were outdated and showed insufficient performance.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 front-end architecture in collaboration with Deep Impact and Comparis. In this case, Comparis provided two back-end developers, who acquired the new technology know-how within Deep Impact.
