Advanced websites require advanced programming solutions. Enterprise business solutions depend on advanced database development.
When you find yourself faced with a challenge for which there is no freely available out-of-the-box solution; or when the best available solution requires custom tweaks: call someone who has years of experience solving challenges just like these.
Enterprise database solutions
MySQL is the open-source database solution employed by millions of websites around the world. Basically, a MySQL database stores data on the server.
A database has many purposes. MySQL can be used to store the text content of a website; it can track an inventory of products for sale; and it can even store information about customers and prospects. Web searches, content management systems, e-commerce websites, in fact virtually everything that makes the web so exciting, are all powered by databases.
Your business might use a custom database system to store and track information about a number of essential, business-critical data sets:
- Prospects, sales leads, and customers
- Orders and work-in-progress
- Accounting, ROI tracking, and sales forecasting
- Finished goods inventory
- Organizational learning: documents, policies, experience & other information
- Content management
Custom programming is intended to enhance the functionality of your website. Different languages suit different purposes.
What do the different programming languages do?
PHP is the most popular server-side scripting language of the 21st century. PHP is the core interpreter module for most of the major commercial website hosting companies. Most of the web hosts you’ve heard of, and most of the rest as well, all run PHP on their web servers. PHP is open source, well documented, and has an extensive developer community. Its relative ease of use does much to cement this popularity. Because it is an interpreted language, PHP code can be written inline, interspersed with the output of a web page to provide dynamic functionality that does not need to be pre-compiled. PHP is suitable for almost all small business applications and many large businesses as well. Perhaps most importantly from a usability perspective, the back-end functionality of the WordPress CMS is written in PHP.
