- Ecosystem approach with “API as a service”
- Data standardization and classification to create a single system
- Making the most of Microsoft Azure cloud services
discover.swiss is an IT initiative supported by the government of Switzerland. It is designed to popularize and digitalize local tourism and make it easily accessible. discover.swiss developed and is responsible for the platform concept and its strategy, which MobiDev implements in a highly professional manner.
discover.swiss is a SaaS platform that uses API integration to aggregate and standardize data – information and offers – from large and small service providers, and share it across the network. As a result, tourists can see a unified picture of local travel spots and destinations in partner apps that are using the API.
The platform uses REST architecture. It aggregates multiple data and turns it into structured information about tourist spots and activities, displayed in a common format and can be displayed in the frontend of the tourist service providers. The API creates key value for the users, providing them an asset for building their digital presence with the essential data at hand. With the large tourist management systems providing information on one side, and local service providers on the other, the needs of a business are all covered via the connection established with the API.
The discover.swiss concept for this platform is based on the ecosystem approach and its scalability. New companies are constantly being added. Dedicated algorithms keep the aggregated information precise and unified. To achieve data standardization, the discover.swiss concept relies on schema.org approved data structure definitions. Processing multiple data coming from different sources is possible by using storage queues. This allows the database load to be balanced and distributed.
Microsoft Azure stack brought seamless integration between the essential parts of the platform:
Thanks to the cooperation with MobiDev, we were able to meet our high demands for a backend service quality platform for Swiss tourism. MobiDev convinced us with their excellent software development skills, their solution-oriented and imaginative contributions, and very reliable and high-quality services.
