SmartShift by Mahindra is a load exchange platform that was built by MediaAgility from scratch. Other cloud providers were considered, but MediaAgility, along with their technical team, chose GCP because it offered scalable platform to delivery the app in a short development time (4-5 months).
MediaAgility chose to build SmartShift using Google Maps APIs and Google App Engine, a powerful platform to build web and mobile apps. To support the storage needs associated with the app, MediaAgility selected Cloud Datastore, a highly scalable NoSQL database, and Google Cloud Storage, an object storage service. Transactional data is stored in Cloud Datastore while compliance-related data, such as identification documents provided by drivers, is kept in Cloud Storage. To gain real-time insights from the user data associated with the app, MediaAgility streams data from Cloud Datastore and Cloud Storage into BigQuery, a fully-managed analytics data warehouse.
