Data is everywhere, both inside and outside of organizations. Getting access to this data, pulling it all together, and ensuring that it is accurate and usable can be extremely challenging.
Leveraging common Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) processes and tools through ODBC, SSIS and Informatica, we have helped many organizations leverage data from disparate sources, improve the overall quality and reliability of this data and store their data for easy access.
Through our involvement with many of our clients, we find that people throughout these organizations are constantly requesting new reports or information. They know the data is “out there” somewhere, but with data dispersed across the company in legacy systems, on someone’s desktop maintained in an Excel spreadsheet, or within a key partner’s system it’s challenging for an organization to efficiently locate, cleanse, collect, store and deliver the necessary information in a timely manner. Brainspire is passionate about digging in, finding this data, and helping these organizations.
Aside from poor design and planning, the issues and challenges with database design are achieving high processing speed to get the needed results, hard-to-follow design standards, and design conventions that are also hard to follow making requirements difficult to reach.
It depends. If your website is static, it does not need a database. But if your website is dynamic, you will probably need a database to store all the necessary data.
It is important to plan a database before creating it in order to make it efficient to fetch and save the data faster. Good relational databases work in tandem with each other to ensure that the correct data is consistently available.
The efficiency with which databases store information makes them suitable to handle volumes of information that would be unmanageable on a spreadsheet. Aside from a far greater storage capacity than spreadsheets, databases are also better for long-term archival storage especially for records subject to frequent changes.
This is important to make data queries fast and efficient because this will be apparent in large data queries and for a huge amount of users using the same database. An efficient database design will also lessen the load of the system. Based on experience, it may be easier to design the database first (based on requirements). Data may include pre-existing data related to or imported for the project, as well as data entered in the UI.

A company’s website is the world’s window into an organization and should accurately represent the essence of the mission, goals, culture and operations. Not only should it be appealing from a visual standpoint, it needs to function flawlessly from a usability and performance standpoint on a desktop, tablet or mobile device. Quality sites can’t simply function as digital brochures; they must attract visitors and engage new and loyal customers. This holds true for public sites, company intranets and secure extranet portals.
Brainspire develops software solutions to integrate your organization’s internal, standalone applications, and your applications with key external business partners. Growing organizations tend to rely on off-the-shelf software, software as a service (SaaS) and custom built solutions to drive their business – but rarely does the chosen, out of the box, software solution work with other systems within or outside the business. This lack of cohesive integration creates manual processes that are time consuming, error prone and expensive.
Today, more users access the web through a mobile device than from a laptop or desktop computer. For this reason, it is critical that software applications are efficiently usable from a tablet or a smart phone for today’s workforce. As a custom software development firm, Brainspire leverages a variety of tools to build highly customized applications that function on countless devices. These solutions include native, hybrid and mobile web applications that can be used either when connected or not. Each business use case is unique, and the mobile requirements, and form factors, need to be considered when creating a custom mobile solution.
Cloud environments offer the greatest opportunity for modernizing software applications while reducing costs and time to market. Brainspire Solutions has developed and deployed web applications leveraging AWS, Azure and Google Cloud environments as well as private clouds. The ability to quickly provision identical Development, Test, Stage and Production environments ensures projects get off to a fast start in secure and scalable environments. Developing and promoting code within a cloud environment through continuous integration reduces development time and improves quality.
Brainspire Solutions develops all software solutions leveraging industry standard best practices. This includes proven techniques to secure all applications and data. When we engage with each client we are fully aware that their business is at stake and realize the trust and expectations that are placed on our consultants when it comes to developing secure software applications.
