Database Administration

Keeping a database up and running isn't always a simple process, especially if it's getting a lot of traffic. With that in mind, we offer our customers weekly and bi-weekly checkup schedules. We just drop by your office or log in to the database remotely, and take a look at what's going on inside the database. We make sure everything's working properly and that there aren't any little problems festering inside of it. If your database isn't healthy, then we'll fix it. It's checkups like these that keep your software from going AWOL on you at the worst possible times.

We're experts in the following database applications:

  • Oracle
  • MS SQL Server
  • MySQL
  • Domino/Notes
  • Microsoft Access
  • Plenty of others like DB2, DBase, Clipper, and Foxpro

Database Design and Development

When you're ready to get organized with your data in a whole new way, that's where the design of databases comes into play. We're here to talk over your business plan, figure out what it is that you want to do with your data as well as what it's shaped like. After that, we'll work our magic and build a database suited precisely to your needs with room to expand for the future.

When we talk with you about what you need, we prefer to talk to all levels of users in order to establish precisely how your database or software should work. It's an inevitible fact of life that managers don't know the precise ins and outs of all the people under their charge. And that's why we like to talk to everyone involved -- to make sure that important features don't get left out, and to make sure that we don't put in features that will never be used! To do it any other way is to invite a loss of productivity, and we're not here for that. We plan to help your business!

Database and Software Customization

Sometimes a database just isn't doing the job anymore, but you don't want to throw out the baby with the bathwater. That's when it's time to just make a few enhancements here and there. Think of it like getting a fancy new chair for your desk. The desk is still the same, but it's much more comfortable to sit at! We'll work with you to figure out exactly what it is that you need added and what the best way to do that is to interrupt your business as little as possible.

Software Installation

Sadly, many of those new software packages should come with "Some Assembly Required" stickers on the boxes. When you get them back to the office, you find out that you don't have the tools to put it all together. The solution? Call us. We'll do the assembly for you.
