Database design and management
Now that you have identified the data you will collect, you must determine how the data will be stored and how the individual elements will interrelate. To make these decisions, you have to clearly define the purpose of your database, or “why am I storing and managing this data?” Determine the outcome you desire from your data and then begin to design your database. To leverage the power of a well designed data structure, members of the BAO Systems implementation team will partner with you to classify your data and identify hierarchies and interrelationships. Once the data relationships and dependencies have been established, the data will be arranged into a logical structure that can then be leveraged to gain insights and interoperate with other systems.
