Database applications - because with great data comes great responsibility

As a business expands, its operations grow in complexity. Relying on spreadsheets to tackle burgeoning information and processes could lead to a data pile-up, and ultimately slow the business down.

Database applications come to the rescue when spreadsheets become unmanageable. With the business expanding, managing structured information with relationships across tables is paramount, and that's exactly what databases are designed for. With a database app, users can define custom roles, provide user based authorizations, implement business specific workflows, etc., by adding their own code to the data modelled in the database.

Designing a Proper Database Application System

Designing a proper database application system is a complex and time-consuming task. The choices made during application design will impact the usefulness of the final delivered application. An improperly designed and coded application may need to be redesigned and re-coded from scratch if it is inefficient, ineffective, or not easy to use. To properly design an application that relies on databases for persistent data storage, the system designer must match the application development languages and tools to the physical database design and the functionality of the DBMS being used. The first thing to be mastered, though, must be a sound understanding of SQL.

Database Application Development

A database oriented application is a progarm whose primary purpose is entering and retrieving information from a computerised database. A database application facilitate
simultaneous updates and queries from multiple users. For this kind of application there are two types available SQL database and NoSQL database.
In SQL databases we work with the following:

A database application facilitate simultaneous updates and queries from multiple users. For this kind of application there are two types available SQL database and NoSQL database. In SQL databases we work with the following:

  • Microsoft SQL Server A relational database management system developed by Microsoft. SQL Server is commonly used for Data Warehousing, Online transactons processes, e-commerce web sites. Microsoft markets atleast a dozen different editions of Microsoft SQL Server, aimed at different audiences and for work loads ranging from small single-machine applications to large internet-facing applications with many concurrent users.
  • MySQL MySQL is an open-source relational database system. The main purpose of MySQL is for web databases. It is most commonly used for e-commerce, data warehousing and logging applications.
  • Oracle Oracle database is a multi-modal database management system. Produced and marketed by Oracle Corporation, it is a database commonly used for running online transaction processes, Data warehousing, and mixed data work loads.
  • Microsoft Azure SQL Database Microsoft’s cloud database service is based on SQL server database technology and built on the Microsoft Windows Azure Cloud Computing Platform. It enables orgranizatons to store relational data in the cloud and quickly scale the size of their databases as required.

And in NoSQL database:

  • MongoDB Mongo DB is an open-source database, which stores and indexes data in the form of collections of documents. In this way, it offers higher performance in data retreival, when compared to conventional SQL databases.

What do database applications offer that spreadsheets don't?

Data relationships

Data from disparate systems can be related, and searched with dropdowns, checkboxes, etc.

Availability

You can access apps on web, mobile, and tablet with equal ease, courtesy of the Cloud.

Flexibility

Databases can be scaled to suit business requirements. No matter how huge the data gets, databases contain it.

Selective sharing

Share just the information users need, instead of giving them access to the entire data set.
