Built to scale
To future-proof the products, we built them on top of what we like to call a mediating layer. With this solution we could disconnect the adapters, business logic and rest APIs from the clients, and build a scalable solution that enhanced and optimised the user experience.
This allowed us to prototype on multiple touch points and find the best solutions on the best platform for the job.
The mediating layer also makes it possible to build an ecosystem of products integrated into the IKEA IT infrastructure. The products were all built on IKEA's new Office 365 and the Cisco Wifi plattform. These platforms had new capabilities which the products could be build upon.
