The client wanted to develop a robust learning application for the iPad that could maximize duration of study time for students. He wanted an application developed that incorporated features to reduce the learning time and knowledge absorption by offering multiple channels of communication, note taking, content management, support for multiple data formats, sharing, editing, annotating, sending emails and browsing the web. Version 1.0 was a major success, but the development of version 2.0 was confronted a data migration challenge. As users were using version 1.0, once they upgrade to version 2.0, we wanted them to be able to migrate the data easily. However, this was easier said than done. Data migration emerged as a major challenge that previously hindered the primary objective of our application.
The client also wanted further overall improvement of the app. We developed an upgraded version - Version 2.0. Version 2.0 was targeted for a massive user base. The business model for this version was designed to garner more revenue through in-app purchase. We gave the app a major overhaul including features that allowed the user to synchronize with Dropbox and iCloud. Other features that we gave the app were handwriting zoom, take audio and video notes, type pages, insert images and password security. We also implemented additional features to allow the user to take notes directly on open source eBooks (EPUB format) as well as PDF, DOC, PPT and XLS.
We carefully mapped the need, data source, target, assessment of the migration, and implemented changes successfully. We were able to extract, transform and load the code that streamlined the migration process for the user. This allowed the existing users of the application to successfully migrate their data from version 1.0 to version 2.0.
