Custom Database Software Development
ConsenCIS creates relational database applications. Our standard, pattern based designs jump start development to assure a successful project. Even if you are using your own design we can often help extract more value from your investment.
Pattern based design is the key to creating robust applications. When you make the investment in a new system you should demand more than the knowledge of a particular business expert or software designer. Only after creating a number of software systems for specific applications do the patterns begin to emerge. Patterns become the expression of the cumulative experience of the designer and those who have gone before him. Each designer adds his own bit of expertise to the whole. It is just foolhardy to start from scratch any more. ConsenCIS patterns are used in every one of our applications.
We prefer to work on relational databases and Microsoft SQL Server is by far the most popular. This derivative of Sybase SQL Server is one of the best databases for small to medium size applications in the industry. A cost effective solution, it provides a standard SQL interface, supports full text searching and even OLAP structures. Oracle, DB2, mySQL, even MS Access are fine too but offer tradeoffs in either cost or capability. These SQL databases provide a consistent approach to storing and retrieving data and work well within the ConsenCIS framework. They have proven effective for large amounts of data and large numbers of simultaneous users. If you are using an older file database like FoxPro or dBase and have outgrown that solution, we'll show you an upgrade path you may not have considered.
