PostgreSQL

PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source relational database system. PostgreSQL has been in active development for more than 15 years with a proven architecture that has earned it a strong reputation for reliability, data integrity, and correctness.

Often referred to as the “Poor Man’s Oracle”, don’t let the reference fool you, PostgreSQL is a powerful open source tool to use in web application development under the right circumstances.

PostgreSQL is also referred to as Postgres. It is an ORDBMS or object relational database management system and is available for use across most platforms including Linux, Solaris, Windows and Mac OS X. It is an open source software and is released under PostgreSQL license. The PostgreSQL database is developed by volunteers employed and supervised by Red Hat and EnterpriseDB and is known as the PostgreSQL Global Development group.

Do your applications support your business?

Custom-developed applications deliver exactly what you need

Maintaining your business is unique. Off-the-shelf IT solutions and pre-packaged software might not suit your business and technology goals. Although you have the option of modifying your business to work around the software, it isn’t always possible or desirable to do so. IT solutions should conform to your business, not the other way around.

Customizing prepackaged solutions or developing applications from scratch may better provide the functionality your business requires, but development work is fraught with its own challenges. Often, it necessitates venturing into new technologies, and you may be limited by the bandwidth of in-house staff. To further complicate the process, you may need to integrate your new systems with other key internal and customer-facing applications and/or migrate critical legacy data.

Employing the seasoned flexibility and deep experience of an outside consultant/developer can ensure you successfully develop and integrate the exact IT solution you need without wasting time and financial resources.

Dot Transition developers have the skills and experience to meet your technology and business goals.
