A businesses needs change over time. Perhaps your factory needs more space, your customers need a different product, or you really need to view the data on your database in a different way, perhaps in the form of a new database report or database printout. In the latter case, perhaps we can help you.
Databases have components like anything else, and it is often a simple matter to change those components or add new better ones.
In the example above, where the user needs a view of the data that is new, we might just produce a new database report or database form. If the problem is more fundamental, we may need to change or add new database tables. If this is not sufficient to overcome the problem we may suggest a full database upgrade.
Replacing the database with something new need not be as drastic as it sounds. A replacement database could not only address the shortcomings of the old system, but provide extra features that are deemed necessary for your business' future.
1. Smaller faster, cheaper, lighter computers for the desktop. They will be no larger than a DVD drive. They will be silent, and run free software, and much of this will be web based. They will use solid state disks, and large quantities of cheap memory.2. More powerful mobile phones will largely replace traditional PCs. The screens of mobiles will occupy as much of the phone as physicallly possible. "Soft buttons will have largely replaced mechanical buttons in top of the range phones.
3. Sophisticated screen display technology will be available that will allow us to use bigger computer monitors in smaller less likely workplaces.
4. Micro-factories: places of work no bigger than a loft
extension, where budding entrepreneurs labour in their free time
"printing" products with 3D printers and selling their wares
by the internet.
