Database design is the process of producing a detailed data model of a database. This logical data model contains all the needed logical and physical design choices and physical storage parameters needed to generate a design in a Data Definition Language, which can then be used to create a database. A fully attributed data model contains detailed attributes for each entity. The term database design can be used to describe many different parts of the design of an overall database system.

However, the term database design could also be used to apply to the overall process of designing, not just the base data structures, but also the forms and queries used as part of the overall database application within the database management system (DBMS)

For access to real time infomation a web based database is what is needed. INNOVIS has expertise in designing and providing multi-user access to real time information. INNOVIS also excels at designing effective database architecture for its clients. We work with MS Access, MS SQL Server and MySQL and have experience with traditional client server and web based databases,database conversions and systems integration. And our database solutions include, customer, inventory, product, image and filerecord sets.

INNOVIS also has core strength in Database conversion. We convert records from existing and legacy databases; this includes the ability to provide exception reports for data that cannot be converted or has been converted and is suspect or in need of cleanup. If you are using MS Excel or MS Access to manage an existing set of records,we have expertise in converting the existing record structure to web-based versions.

Database Migration

The key to successful migration is to ensure that existing applications run effectively on the new platform without inconsistencies or errors. We perform both application and data migration services. INNOVIS has extensive experience in synchronizing centralized data with distributed data and bridging migrated and non-migrated applications.

From the onset our team investigates possible alternative architectures, performs a tradeoff analysis and then presents this information with a recommendation. Our recommendation is based on pre-determined success factors such as cost, technical risk, conformance to existing and planned IT strategies and so forth. Using the following guidelines we direct the migration in a phased approach so the current running system remains undisturbed.

We will fully develop documented and detailed processes for conversion, replication and bridging. Each of these processes will be designed, developed, tested and validated so the transition and migration will be traceable throughout the process.

Our competency groups have helped many customers migrate applications to new platforms more quickly and efficiently thereby providing applications at
