What this REALLY means,|
is that we will assist you in determining your needs and help you find a total solution.
We can assist in any or all phases of the project life cycle. This includes helping you to determine your needs and recommending resolutions. And we have experienced programmers, network personnel, web designers and business professionals available, so you can work with one company, instead of several, to make your system a reality.
At Filemaker Nashville, we believe in incremental database development as a means of controlling costs, learning from the experience of use, and minimizing the risk of failure.
However, we also believe in taking time up front to look at the big picture and construct a flexible, but integrated database development strategy.
Our essential design concepts include:
face it, nowadays every system|
is created using some type of database. At Filemaker Nashville, we have experience in various platforms and database engines, including FileMaker Pro, Microsoft Access and Microsoft SQL Server.
With this range of experience, we can work on smaller projects utilizing FileMaker Pro or MS Access as well as larger systems utilizing an SQL Server back-end.
Our knowledge and experience with these database platforms provides us with the flexibility to choose a database tool that will provide the best solution for you.Don't let anybody tell you that all
databases are created equal, and that there is no difference between them. This is not true. Depending on the volume of data you will be storing or retrieving, the speed with which you need to retrieve it, the number of concurrent users, oh and of course budget, the database you choose is VERY important.
Also equally important, is the person or persons responsible for designing your database. They need to understand your system's needs to determine the correct database to use. They need to understand the relationship of your data so that you will be able to access the information you desire. And they need to understand performance issues so you can get that information in a timely manner.
