Guys, I am a non-technical founder with some understanding of how the web app works front end and backend, etc. I have a somewhat technical question to help me make a business decision. I hope you guys can help me.
I have two different apps built on two different platforms, Express web framework and another one in ROR. Let's call these A and B respectively.
A has close to 1 Million users, and B has over 200K registered users. Both built by the entirely separate team. A and B are complementary to each other and if it were to be combined would provide enormous value to its users, and I intend to do just that. I have the founder of A.
I am pretty sure this has been done numerous times but what do you think is the most efficient way to do it from a technological standpoint? I want to keep the team separate in the beginning and want to integrate as quickly as possible by building web APIs for application A. We do everything via web API in application B.
What do you guys think is the best way to do this from a technological stand point?
