A Web Application based on the Symfony PHP framework

After discussing their needs with them, we found out the best solution to create the product they were aiming for was to create a web application from scratch, and offered to use our expertise with the Symfony PHP framework.

The complexity of the project came from the fact it involved uniting data and content from different sources. The authentication of users was a sensitive task as they came from an outside database while we also needed to save their settings and allowing them to reset their passwords. Then another complex part was to retrieve the data they have access to through a web socket.

Data Analytics for Business Intelligence

Compass is a business analytics application that displays data in various ways, this data is provided by Qlik Sense from Qlik, which provides creative ways to store and analyse data, but also  interact and visualise it online. The Qlik Engine JSON API is a WebSocket protocol, we used it to retrieve information as JSON objects from the Qlik Engine and display them for users in Compass as data tables, graphs, world maps etc.
