The key functions of any organisation or business system are to help it to operate efficiently and to respond to the needs of its users or clients quickly. Therefore it’s essential that the databases supporting them are suitable for the job in hand.
Databases are built on different technologies and come in different sizes. Databases often sit behind an online web application but sometimes are managed within a database management application. Whatever your situation our team of experts is ready to help you get the most out of your database.
Optimised to perform
You may have found that your database isn’t running as smoothly as it once did. Over time as more data is added to a database you may notice a drop in performance. This can be caused by a number of reasons from a poorly architected database structure, through to ill written queries in the front-end application, and everything in between.
Our experience in database optimisation allows us to help keep your database running smoothly and efficiently as your operation or business grows.
Perhaps your organisation has outgrown a Microsoft Excel or Access database used for keeping user or customer records and needs to enable concurrent usage by multiple employees. We can work with you to understand the overall requirements of your database application, and then using the most suitable technologies build a secure front-end interface to make management of your data intuitive, quick and secure.
Sometimes, a limiting factor is the underlying database itself. Perhaps the technology no longer supports the requirements of the database, or maybe the database needs moving to a more cost-effective technology or to the cloud? Whatever the reason, the database will need to be migrated to the new technology. OWA has built up years of experience handling databases in various technologies and different sizes and can help your organisation with its migration.
