About The Client

Data Innovators is a social enterprise led by a team of young Africans passionate about making systemic development changes through data and helping organizations manage their data for a positive future. Their product- ImpactBoard allows organizations to streamline tracking, customize data collections, and integrate reporting in one place.

The company is based in Johannesburg, South Africa, and has experience in testing and implementing innovative, fit-for-purpose approaches to data communication and M&E across the globe.

Business Needs

Data Innovators noticed a significant problem with project impact assessment. The company realized there is a need for a platform where organizations can monitor, evaluate, and communicate the results of their projects most efficiently. The client wanted to create a platform where organizations can customize their data collections, workflows, and reviews to meet business needs.

The client’s in-house team faced insufficient React JS resources while developing the product. To bridge this resource gap, they wanted to hire resources contractually for a particular time interval to bring their product vision to life.

Our Solutions

To scale up the Data Innovator’s in-house development process, the client collaborated with the eTraverse React Js development team. Our dedicated development team collaborated closely with Data Innovators to address the challenges and achieve the following objectives.

  • Innovative Visualization: Leveraging the power of React’s component-based architecture, we designed a visually stunning and interactive dashboard. Customizable widgets allow users to tailor their data representation based on their unique needs.
  • Scalability: The ReactJS development team adopted best practices for code organization and utilized Redux for state management to ensure scalability. React JS, Express.js, and MySQL combined contributed to a scalable architecture capable of handling growing datasets and user demands. This allowed ImpactBoard to address many users and data points without compromising performance.
  • Real-time Data: We integrated Apache 2.4.x  to enable real-time updates, ensuring users could access the latest data without manual refreshing. This feature was crucial for organizations making data-driven decisions in real-time.
  • Collaborative Features: Leveraging the inherent component reusability of ReactJS and integrating Firebase as our backend service provider, our dedicated development team seamlessly implemented collaborative features within the ImpactBoard.
  • Responsive Design: Employing responsive design principles and leveraging React’s capabilities, we ensured a consistent and optimal user experience across devices, from desktops to tablets and smartphones.
  • Database: My SQL
  • Version Control: Git
  • Programming Language: React JS
  • Webserver: Apache 2.4.x
  • Framework: Express.Js
