MAF (Media Application Framework) is our foundational web platform on which most of our key applications are built. The GDS and MAF teams have worked closely together to build elegant, reusable React components and patterns. These will underpin our key future Nielsen applications.

GDS Web Components

Currently, at least five different Javascript frameworks are used throughout Nielsen products. This complexity means it's nearly impossible to have a consistent component library. To improve this, we have begun to build a tech stack agnostic implementation of GDS using Web Components. This will allow us to provide consistent styling, usability, and repeatability across all our web platforms.
