Frequently Asked Questions
There are many issues to consider when making the decision about purchasing custom software. Here are some of the questions most frequently asked by our clients.
What is a database? Short answer: Any collection of data can be called a database, but a truly usable database allows a person to query, order and view their data in ways that help them be more productive.
When is custom software the right investment? Short answer: Custom software is a good investment when it gives you features other software can not, and those features are worth the cost of the software.
What hardware and software is need to support a
data base? Short answer: It depends on what you want your database to do. (The short answer is that there is not a short answer, but some basic questions can resolve this!)
- What is a network? Short answer: A network is the hardware, wires, and software that lets computers communicate with each other. There is also a wireless implementation.
- Can my network support a database? Short answer: It depends on what you have, and what you want your database to do! (The short answer is that there is not a short answer, but some basic questions can resolve this!)
How does the design process work? Short answer: The design team needs to understand your work flow. They ask a lot of questions and then propose how the program will work. There is a review process where you let the design team know if they have it right!
The answers to those questions depend on what your needs are, what your current configuration is and what your overall performance requirements are. Please contact Fortnight Software, we will be happy to discuss how a Fortnight Software database can help you meet your data management needs.
