Business Requirements

  • When Sync was initiated, a full set of information was being transmitted, requiring a lot of time to load the map Geo JSON
  • Geo JSON updates happen based on the time of sync, instead of last updated time of records
  • Download of data associated to each point was not supported for document related data sync
  • Severe performance issues existed in the legacy system
