Databases are the foundation of great online success
Efficiently designed databases are the mainstay of application driven websites and web applications. An inefficient database design will lower application performance, increase working expenses and confuse technology decisions.
Database development and design: why you need them
In today’s world a corporate entity has to collate, store and sort out large amounts of data. This process can be completely automated with database systems saving hours of effort and time. Databases help manage huge volumes of information efficiently. A well designed database can consolidate all your business information. It provides you the means of maintaining data and using it to maximum potential. To do this a database has to be user friendly and designed with a high degree of intelligence.
As stated above, we specialize in designing and developing database systems for large to small businesses. Our proven expertise in these areas allows us to kick start development and reduces the implementation time. While designing a database, we first gather the requirements of your business, keeping in mind how the data will be used by your company. Our aim is to create a user friendly, efficient and cost effective system that employees can use to manage, store and retrieve data with the utmost ease. Proven Methodology
We use a well documented path to create an effective database design for you. We identify your organizational requirements, meet with you to review and develop specifications for the database and only then start the development process. This reduces chances of errors and rework, thus paving the way for a database system that will perform efficiently year upon year. Our database systems are robust, scalable, secure and completely reliable.
We offer complete software architecture services. The software architecture of a program or computing system is the structure or structures of the system, which comprise software components, the externally visible properties of those components, and the relationships between them. The term also refers to documentation of a system's software architecture. Documenting software architecture facilitates communication between stakeholders, documents early decisions about high level design, and allows reuse of design components and patterns between projects.
The field of computer science has come across problems associated with complexity since its formation. Earlier problems of complexity were solved by developers by choosing the right data structures, developing algorithms, and by applying the concept of separation of concerns
User action/feedback view
The primary benefits of good architecture are:
Reliability - Architecture is written once and used many times, which gives it the advantage of being testing frequently and under a wide array of scenarios.
Reusability - By establishing solid design patterns, an architecture can grow over time and therefore achieve a high level of reuse.
Scalability - Each time a new system utilizes a pre-existing architecture it needs to handle the worse case scenarios across a variety and ever changing set of conditions. Over time, a good architecture evolves and improves to handle these changes.
Maintainability - This is one of the most important benefits given that applications are rarely static. The true test of an architecture and the quality of the code is how easily the software can be enhanced.
Security - Security should not be taken lightly and small errors can introduce large security holes. A tight control over architecture design and rigorous testing positions security sensitive code to be designed into the architecture.
In addition to traditional project management services, Xiova provides large-scale multi-project program management. We have extensive experience in the strategic and tactical management of scalable programs. By combining Xiova’s top project management leaders, best-practices methodologies and a strict attention to detail Xiova is positioned as the best partner for successful project management.
We provide our customers with the highest quality project management, software development and engineering services. We strive to maintain the highest level of expertise possible in both current and emerging software engineering methodologies and technological advancements. We pride ourselves on developing relationships that endure - not dwindle at the end of a delivered service. We just know a "one-size fits all" approach does not always work.
Building great software doesn’t start with a singular approach; it starts with the right one. Finding the right path to your solution success is one of the first Xiova missions that we share with you.
Finding reliable resources with the right expertise can be challenging and costly regardless of the size of your company. If you take on a project that is outside of your core expertise, the cost and time to train existing staff can be prohibitive. Projects typically have fluctuating resource needs that are best handled through staff augmentation.
Let the Xiova team augment your staff and free up internal resources, lower operating costs, and increase operating efficiency.
Xiova will augment your existing team with one or more expert technology resources who will be productive immediately. Our flexible consultative approach includes assignment of multiple resources with varying skills within one resource budget. Short term or long term, onsite or offsite we can provide the professional resources you need.
