Data Sync as a Framework

Some of the Asks/Requirements

  • Offline
  • Conflict Detection & Resolution
  • Custom Conflict Resolution
  • Custom Business Logic
  • Multiple Data Sources
  • Data Schema Generation/Management
  • Audit Logging
  • Metrics
  • Security (Authn & Authz)

Some Things that Stand Out

  • Data Schema Generation/Management
  • Custom Conflict Resolution
  • Custom Business Logic

Question

Is this just a Sync Service?

Or does it encapsulate all of my business logic? (the entire app)

What about 'Cloud Apps'?

Client

Sync

Cloud App?

http

GraphQL

Data???

Is there overlap? How do these things fit together?

What if Sync weren't a service?
