Database Platform Selection Tool is an internal web app designed for Product Managers and Developers to simplify the database platform selection process.
This is a small tool, but is helping hundreds of developers in eBay.
I worked with a PM to gather users’ requirements and agreed on the project objectives, deliverables and development platform.
Based on Data Model PM provided, I designed and coded the database platform selection tool.

Whiteboarding the concept
I worked with the PM to figure out the goals, scope, deployment environment and constraints of this tool. Before starting anything, we spent a lot of time discussing the vision for this tool. After that, We wireframed a lot on the office whiteboard. This helped me get out ideas in a quick way.
