Project Overview

LIWedding is an online bridal community / platform for Brides/Grooms and Vendors. The website helps brides/grooms: Connect with vendors and vice versa, Plan their wedding, Facilitate brides/grooms to search vendors, Create/manage events, Get an estimation for the events using available tools, Post their queries or answer other's queries through forum, Get social updates etc., Vendor can manage their profile and services, Request for Advertisement post over the website, Get leads, download leads etc.
In short, everything a bride/groom needs to plan for their wedding could be found over LIWeddings.com e.g. wedding venues, dresses, planning tools, photos, ideas, and vendors.

Project Challenge

LIWeddings.com was originally developed on .Net platform using ASP.Net, MSSQL server as database and other third party APIs. We developed this application using Opensource technology i.e. PHP, MVC design pattern, a robust and scalable framework that supports flexibility, vertical and horizontal scalability. Challenges:
a) Major challenges on the project were the huge and unnormalized legacy data from past 20 years.
b) Migration of big data from MSSQL server structure into MySQL server thinking normalization in mind for future prospects.
c) Such a big data without Normalization was like a nightmare, the database normalization at first place and then migrating the existing data with 100% accuracy was always challenges us.
d) During system analysis, it was the biggest challenge for us to design the system architecture and database in such way that it could perform faster in execution as well as data integrity and security in other hands.
e) Approximately 5 Gigabytes of data and more than 20,000 active users, their personal data and wedding memorandum were another point for us to think about.
f) Another challenge was to managing 175 Gigabytes of images.
g) Data migration through available tools was not possible, more than 80% of the data migration was done through writing SQL scripts to convert the data into MySQL format and then validating data one by one was so very tough for the team. The data structure in MSSQL server and MySQL server are not very common in nature, it takes lots of time and determination to think and implement in for real time users.
h) Another biggest challenge was developing application keeping the existing customer's expectation in mind is always a tough job one has to think about.
Meeting the existing user's experience and expectation in completely new look is always a challenge. Transferring existing users from one system to another system with same expectation with advanced security features keeping in mind is another difficult task to perform.

The Endeavor

The website was launched in October 2016, all LIWeddings customers, including vendors, brides/grooms can get the information online at www.liweddings.com With the successful implementation of Phase-1 and gone live, we are now heading with more additional features to support the vendors, brides/grooms, and their extended services.

Client feedback

Artoon helped in successful new design, technology transfer (from Microsoft to open source), complete data migration and optimization of website and database for better load time and speed on browsers. I am happy and satisfied working with them and would recommend them for any complex software/web application work to every service buyer. Thanks
