RTL+ upgrades software for streaming platform with Qvest

Qvest Works Closely With RTL

RTL+ has worked with Qvest’s digital product development team for modernizing the software architecture of its streaming platform; the online broadcaster’s goal is using resources more effectively 

The German TV broadcaster RTL runs largest streaming service in Germany, RTL+, with more than 3.4 million users and, facing transition to a modernizing software they chose a part of the Qvest Group, Qvest Digital AG, for overhauling of the existing software architecture.

As part of the modernization, the existing software architecture was converted from a backend-for-frontend (BFF) pattern to GraphQL with Federation. In the process, numerous separate APIs, each of which was connected to a different frontend of the streaming service (web app, mobile app, TV app, etc.), were replaced by a harmonized API. The newly created, central interface for all software teams enables easier further development of the platform as well as time savings of up to 30 percent in the workflow.

Key factors in the success of the GraphQL Federation implementation included troubleshooting and community building, in addition to tooling and schema management.
