Drop the base and all you’ve got is data.
Humans are essentially living databases. We store information, ideas, and details about people, products, and places. We retreat to our repositories of knowledge to reason through life’s most complicated problems. You should be able to rely on your company’s database in the same way. Databases store your most valuable intel and silently save the day – and your sanity – with organization and automation.
SINGLE SOURCE OF TRUTH.
Reduce Redundancy, Increase Efficiency
Database development normalizes your data so come what may, your intel remains orderly, accessible, and persistent. Database architecting plays a pivotal role in web and mobile application development by preventing redundancy, which ensures a single source of truth and increases efficiency. Rule of thumb: Redundancy is pointless and useless.
How We Do It
As with anything worth doing, there’s a process in place to yield the same quality results every time. It then comes as no surprise that we have a process for developing databases that give you the freedom of flexibility. While every project is different, we aim to stay true to the fundamentals they all have in common.
Before we can do anything, we have to know what we’re dealing with.
Choosing the type of database is an important task with regards to the longevity of the project. If your data is rigid, a SQL (Structured Query Language) may be the best route. Otherwise, a noSQL solution may be more fitting.
3. Database Normalization
Your relational database is structured to reduce data redundancy. We’re not normal, but we want our databases to be.
4. Continued Maintenance
Routine monitoring and maintenance as needed to ensure your database is ordering and overriding data properly.
