The tecnologiana Wine

In 2018, the Wine had a team of technology is very robust, and it followed the traditional model of management. However, since 2019, it has adopted the model of the squads for the project, and the first squad of the app.

Today, the company has 94 employees at the time of the technology's distributed in the various squads, as a club, stores, products, and application, one that only cares for the employees.

With an architecture that is turning all the apps, the cloud and micro-services for you, including dozens of applications for both internal and external, connecting your technology with the use of API's in a managed way, it is a necessity of the Wine.

The challenge

To launch the app in no time and is fully integrated with the platform

All kind of integration and service has always been very difficult from the point of view of technological efforts to build a new project, impacting directly with the delivery period, in addition to the demand for a robust environment for the servers.

When the Wine has decided to launch an app that would connect with their users on their platform, aiming to improve the user experience, and customer retention, the chief technology officer of the company, Clayton Realized it needed to design a project from scratch, which would include the design of the APIs that are both scalable and performance-based, which allows
in the data usage of different parts of the chain, such as inventory management, contractors, sales, retail shops and requests of the customers.

As the chief technology officer, Clayton has the responsibility for maintaining and improving the environment, technology, Wine, whether from the point of view of external users, such as customers and other stakeholders, as well as internal users, such as employees.

When she began to assemble in the design of the app, he realized that he would have to build a robust architecture of APIs in a secure, standardized, scalable, and is being monitored, in order to have a proper management of the flow of data, as well as to make the connectivity of the entire ecosystem of the application.

The Problem

The main problem for this challenge, it was time to get an app ready for the launch. Clayton commented on what a project like this, it would take a lot of time for it to be delivered in the case of the APIs in the application to be built by a team of wireless technology is a tool.

In addition, in order to build an architecture that is robust set of APIs that consume the data from the platform in a controlled, monitored, and secured, it would be necessary to expand the team, and the cloud infrastructure of the company.

It was then, at the beginning of 2019, the Wine, picked up the LinkApi, with the aim of enabling the building to the design of the APIs in a modern, scalable, flexible, and easy-to-manage.

The biggest challenge was to launch the application, even in the year 2019 and, for this reason, it was necessary to provide a framework for APIs that would allow them to consume the data from the platform of the orders, inventory, customers, vendors, invoices, the calculation of shipping, and the tracking of shipments.

All integration-relates to the platform, and, for this reason, it is a question that is central to the Wine. The construction of architectures for complex integrations has always been a slow, labor-intensive, and to make its management has become a critical and fundamental to the business.

The team has already made the use of a tool for the integration of the time, however, offer very little to speed up the process of building and managing APIs, in addition to having a long and steep learning curve.

Because of this, considered even to build everything in-house. According to Clayton, in order to build a robust architecture of the APIs, it was necessary not only to increase the infrastructure for the servers, such as the hiring of new people to the team.

“A project like this would take at least eight months to be delivered. We didn't have that time, and correríamos the risk of a failure in the integration, not only do you have the management of the APIs made easy.”

In addition to this, they had a fully dedicated on the project. According To Clayton:

“We are focused on delivering the project, and the LinkApi it wasn't possible, as it allowed us to scale the
the construction of the design of the APIs in a secure manner, and modern, a mere three months.”
