The Solution

G Suite-based Document Management System boosts enterprise productivity

Infosys implemented a Document Management System using G Suite and developed a business app using Angular 4 UI and Python RESTful Web services.

Our solution leverages G Suite, specifically Google Drive for document storage, Google App Engine for hosting the application, and Google Cloud Datastore for the application database.

Python RESTful microservice enables interaction between UI, Google APIs and the datastore. Our team reduced the number of API calls by storing a majority of document details in the local datastore, thereby managing Google API call quotas hourly / daily.
