AgoraPulse boosts its productivity and performance

AgoraPulse

AgoraPulse provides advanced Facebook Marketing and CRM solutions. It helps brands to manage their Facebook pages with an all-in-one SaaS platform (apps, statistics, moderation and qualification features).

We have recently migrated all our legacy services (ColdFusion-based) to Grails 2.0 and it has given us a fantastic performance boost: average response time went from 600ms down to 100ms (with the same app logic and servers)… In terms of development, the open source Grails Plugins community is great, it regularly gives us tremendous productivity boost when we need to integrate other technology/services.

We regularly contribute back with our own Grails Plugins (Facebook SDK, AWS SDK, KISSmetrics/Vero plugins). We also enjoy Groovy expressiveness and Grails convention over configuration.

Today, the Groovy ecosystem (Grails, Gradle, Spock...) provides the most advanced frameworks for any agile JVM-based web development.
