If you need a database for an application, EGN Systems can design one that is robust, stable, extensible, consistent, rapid, functional and information rich.
The data model underpins the system. Get it wrong and you have a system that could be inefficient, unreliable, costly and damaging to your business. The key to an effective data model lies in the design. And the key to the design lies in understanding the client’s business processes and always incorporating the following factors:
Break data down and store it at its lowest level of detail (make it atomic).
Eliminate redundancy. There should be no duplication of data. Everything defined once and once only.
Structure and organise the model to maximise the efficiency of manipulating and querying the data. Take into account processing capacity and usage patterns when building the physical data model.
Ensure that data relationships and dependencies are extensible and cannot be broken. Build validation rules into the database model wherever the database management system allows.
Allow for future extension of the data model without having to restructure the existing model.
Use consistent naming conventions, data types, field lengths and constraints throughout the model.
