Enhanced Requirements Embedded as Metadata into your Business Database
A scripted database-design approach will allow you to embed the current and future needs of your business into a dedicated set of metadata tables. This will ensure continuity of your business needs because the metadata tables can be updated during and after the design process has reached its primary iterative conclusion.
The mapping of cost variables related to your needs can also become summarized record-values and incorporated into dynamic transactional records and added to the normal insert and update SQL commands as extended instructions. Typical examples might include such items as usage numbers, functional types and quantities of data stored. These records can be customized to fit your exact requirements
Normally, a typical business database is often thought of as a relatively static and necessary storage repository with little to contribute to the dynamics of your business. But, because of today’s fast pace of activities connected to so many external information sources, you might reconsider your design objectives and investigate some of the newer features that could be scripted into your database acquisition efforts.
As a business owner you probably understand that a good data entry and retrieval system will help you control the many financial transactions that take place daily in your business but you might not see that much of your difficulties will arise unexpectedly in the areas of operation, training, testing and troubleshooting. The added layer of software information, advocated by the technique put forward in this article, will greatly assist you in turning some of these difficulties to easily handled episodes.
You will not be able to instantly overcome all of the problems that arise on any given day; but you will be able to elaborately monitor many factors that tend to give rise to these database operational problems. The most important component of this technique is firmly held by the idea that all of your requirements can be embedded in a metadata format which can then be mapped smoothly into your normal database-driven application and thereby provide you with the information you need to run your business.
You can accomplish this by designing your database script to accommodate the metadata, simultaneously, as expanded requirements that integrate interpolative-layers with the normal business data processed on a daily basis.
If you do not posses the skills to accomplish this effort, then choose an experienced designer or software design company that you can talk to with ease and can explain your desires to incorporate your training, testing and problem-solving needs as embedded components in your computer application reporting and monitoring goals.
