Project Brief

Collector Car Companion is an innovative software tool that will help you reduce the amount of time it takes to restore, refresh or maintain your collector car, truck or motorcycle. Collector Car Companion helps you catalog parts and describe work you plan to do on your vehicle. This makes the restoration or replacement of parts, and the later refitting of parts, much easier. We’ve all spent hours searching for missing parts, trying to figure out how something fits back together, and having pieces left over at the end of a project. Using Collector Car Companion will help reduce and even prevent these time wasting and frustrating activities.


Challenge

Collector Car Companion is an online service dedicated to serving the collector vehicle community, from weekend hobbyists to serious collectors to professional restoration shops. The community is made up of owners and enthusiasts of all types of cool vehicles including classics, antiques, customs, hot rods, resto mods, you name it. And while our middle name is 'Car', Collector Car Companion is just as useful for all types of collector vehicles like trucks, motorcycles, airplanes, boats, tractors, etc. Collector Car Companion is run by people who are - enthusiasts who enjoy owning and caring for their collector vehicles. We have experienced firsthand the joys, excitement, friendships and camaraderie of the collector vehicle hobby. We have also experienced the headaches and challenges of owning and operating old vehicles. It was through these experiences that Collector Car Companion was born.

Challenges to cloud adoption come in all shapes, sizes and severities. None should be considered showstoppers, but that doesn’t make them any less real or significant.

  • Matching requirements: Developing a cloud-based project for a windows application and matching up it's all requirements with the existing application was a big take over.
  • Integration with Existing Infrastructure: This is a difficult yet essential piece of maximizing the value of Cloud Service which must be addressed.
  • Changing the Way Things Are Done: We have already touched upon the fact that a lot of things changes when a product goes from an old desktop project software to a Cloud Solution. However, it goes well beyond this. Switching to a piece of cloud-based project changes up things so much that it can feel your entire project management practices have to be adjusted.
  • Managing unstructured data: It’s easy to have a simple database system for a desktop application such as MySQL but when it comes to a Cloud Project we have to think about a solution which has the ability to manage large amounts of unstructured data.

Solution

Cloud-based project management solutions can sometimes put an added burden on individual employees and team members but as said earlier, this had actually become a good thing.

We decided to go with PHP Support and solutions provided by MongoDB; As PHP is platform independent and compatible with many servers we opted for PHP for this built. The support for Large amount of databases and low development and maintenance cost makes it most popular. Also, we are offered with very high performance and reliability.

With such a critical requirements we decided to manage the data in two different databases. So having an plain PHP database along with the an highly efficient database such as MongoDB proved to be a great solution for us.

MongoDB is a popular open-source document-oriented database. In this case, documents are created and stored in BSON files, Binary JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) format, so all JS types of data are supported. It is also a better option, when it comes to storage capacity and speed, as it offers greater efficiency and reliability.

One of the top benefits offered by MongoDB is the use of dynamic schemas that eliminates the need to pre-define the structure, like fields or value types. Such model allows hierarchical relationships representation, array storage, and ability to change the records structure by simply adding or deleting fields. This NoSQL solution comes with embedding, auto-sharding (partition of data horizontally), and on-board replication for better scalability and high availability, easy to deploy, operate and scale your database across leading cloud platforms.

Result

Solution that we came up with has a combination of existing and new advanced functionalities. We have provided the matching file structure in accordance with the existing windows application.

As earlier, this was not a cloud solution, so things were like, people were downloading this application as a software and then using it remotely. If this is not installed with your system you can not access it from other systems but now as it is shifted to cloud user can access it from anywhere, anytime.

This Cloud Project benefits the user in number of ways such as,

  • Work from anywhere With cloud computing, if you’ve got an internet connection you can be at work.
  • Centralised data : A single move to cloud computing and all files are stored centrally and everyone sees one version of the truth. Greater visibility means improved collaboration, which ultimately means better work and a healthier bottom line.
  • Security : Lost laptops are a billion dollar business problem. And potentially greater than the loss of an expensive piece of kit is the loss of the sensitive data inside it. Cloud computing gives you greater security. when this happens.
  • Flexibility : If our needs increase it’s easy to scale up your cloud capacity, drawing on the service’s remote servers. Likewise, if you need to scale down again, the flexibility is baked into the service. This level of agility can give businesses using cloud computing a real advantage over competitors.
  • Disaster recovery : Small businesses are twice as likely as larger companies to have implemented cloud-based backup and recovery solutions that save time, avoid large up-front investment and roll up third-party expertise as part of the deal.
So let`s get in touch and turn your idea into a brilliant solution.
