Database Design and Development

Data Modeling
We can translate the real world into a model of information entities which your organization deals with, then transform that model into databases and tables which support your applications. We aim to design for a maximum of information capture and a minimum of processing redundancy.

Database Construction
Begins with the Implemention of the accepted data model in standard DDL (data definition language), denormalized as necessary to produce a workable application. We then load existing client data, with appropriate manipulation and conversions, and provide data capture and maintenance functionality to ensure error-free update and ongoing operational support.

Query Formulation
Makes stored data available for application support or management analysis. It may provide basic data mining capabilities, with extracts as necessary to feed Business Intelligence applications. Queries may range from extensive daily or periodic procedures, to one-off efforts to answer an immediate question or need.
