Databases for business advantage

Database Design and Development

DMW Consultancy Ltd's aim in database design is to achieve tools for business that are easy to use, straightforward to maintain and rich in yields of information that can be used to business advantage.

Also, recognising that few businesses manage to specify their database perfectly at the outset, DMW build each database so that it is open to modification and extension without excessive additional resources.

DMW has been designing and developing Microsoft Access databases since Access first arrived in the UK in 1992. So we offer a wealth of experience to help you achieve exactly what you need.


Database Development Return on Investment

Design and development costs should be weighed against the ROI that will accrue from the use of the database over its lifetime.

DMW Consultancy Ltd work closely with our clients to make sure any database matches business needs and objectives, intent on yielding that return on investment.

DMW assist in focussing on true needs, and on distinguishing these from wishes. Wishes, which may sound like good ideas at the outset, inflate specifications and lead to inclusion in a database of areas that never get used or maintained properly. Thus wishes may over-complicate a database and certainly will inflate the cost of development.


Database Consultancy

Experience across scores of business sectors and business applications means DMW Consultancy Ltd have much to offer in determining the best approach to take for a new database.

Certainly DMW can help you avoid the sorts of costly mistakes that are still being made in the specification, commissioning, development and usage of relational databases.
