Database Development

Relational databases are the hub of almost every software or web based system. If the database is slow, the user experience is slow. Over time as the data tables fill and fragment, performance can degrade. A well placed index can reduce a query search from 2 minutes to 2 seconds. Database Doctor outlines services which we can provide to improve the performance of your database.


Microsoft Access Databases - Love them or Hate Them?

Microsoft Access databases are typically used for small work group applications or prototyping. They are often developed as a core application by in-house staff with a basic knowledge of IT.

If you hate them you probably have a system which is garish to look at, slow to use, written by a member of staff who has long since left and no-one in your organisation can enhance the database functionality. You are in the majority but don't worry SIS can solve your problems. We have been writing well structured low budget MS Access applications for SME's since MS Access version 1.1 which came out in the early 90's.

How can SIS help?

  • We can develop a low cost, secure, efficient MS Access solution to your specifications. Say goodbye to all those spreadsheets and semi-automated processes.
  • We can take on support of an existing MS Access database.
  • We can improve performance using a number of techniques which include archiving, indexing, re-writing the code and splitting the database into client server.
  • SIS can update the database to a newer version of Microsoft Access for example Microsoft Access 97 to Microsoft Access 2007.
  • SIS can upsize the database to Microsoft SQL Server to improve performance and provide a more robust solution, whilst maintaining your valuable historic data.
