Business requirements gathering

A very important part of any project is the gathering of business requirements. For large or complex projects this can be time- consuming and difficult, and requires a unique set of skills in order to be done properly. Requirements gathering is an essential part of any application development effort, and understanding fully what the final product must deliver is critical to its success. This may sound obvious, but it is surprising how often this key project phase is short-changed.  

Analysis and design

Once requirements have been defined they need to be analyzed in order to determine the best way to implement the solution. Just as with building a new house, a “blueprint” must be created before the first brick is laid if the final product is expected to be stable and long-lasting. The design phase of a new database and application is a very critical part of any database application development project.

Database and application development

Based on the prior project phases, the creation of the database is next. Its design is crucial to the flexibility and functionality that the results application will have. An application architect with the proper experience is crucial.

User training and support

Now that your application has been developed and is ready for production use, make sure your staff is properly trained to take full advantage of all application features.

On-going maintenance

Look for continued user and technical support to ensure your mission-critical application continues to grow with and support your business.

Application integration

Database applications no longer operate in silos but rather become part of an overall technology portfolio that includes many diverse systems and technologies. We help integrate our applications into your environment in order to leverage existing platforms, applications and utilities. These change from client-to-client based on the specific technologies available, but often include many of the following. Operating Systems o Windows (All Versions) o Apple Macintosh System 7, System 8 o MS/PC DOS o 4DOS, 4NT Spreadsheets o Microsoft Excel o Lotus 123 o BalerXE o Quattro Pro Word Processing o Microsoft Word (Windows and Macintosh) o Word Perfect (DOS, Windows, and Macintosh) Utilities o AnVir/Symantec/Norton Utilities o PC Tools o Many, many others Financial/Accounting Systems o Intuit Financial Software (Quicken, QuickBooks) o Pacioli – Accounting Systems o PFROI – Investment Portfolio Management o TCB – Financial Applications (G/L, A/P, etc.)
