Software for database and application development is a vast area of business in the UK Channel. Sigma sell products that cover everything from the computer programming, documenting, testing, and bug fixing involved in creating and maintaining applications and frameworks throughout a software release life cycle.

Database Development Process
Database Development Process
1. Requirement Gathering
All requirements of the system being developed are captured and documented in a requirement specification.

2. System Design
Requirement specifications are studied and system design is prepared to defineoverall system architecture; hardware and system requirements.

3. Development
Based on the system design, the database is first developed in small programs called units ready for integration in the next phase.

4. Integration and Testing
All units developed in the implementation phase are integrated into a system after testing of each unit. Post integrations, the entire system is tested for any faults and failures.

5. Deployment
Once testing is complete, the database is deployed in the customer environment or released into the market.

6. Management and Maintenance
Once in the customer environment, developers release product updates.

Application Development Process
Application Development Process
1. Scoping
Identifying need and solution through detailed research with stakeholders and end users.

2. Design architecture
Detailed blueprint of processes and logical design produced Identify the best software to build application.

3. Development
Precision coding through multiple development teams.

4. Integration
Developers combine individual work and validate before testing.

5. Testing Phase
Thorough testing for errors across all functionality using multiple test cases.

6. Deployment
Software is prepared for release, then installed and activated by the end user.

7. Management and Maintenance
Once in the customer environment, developers release product updates.

Gone from struggling with data silos to getting lost in the data lake?
New big data solutions have solved the problems of being able to track, manage & consume data that was previously distributed in silos across the organisation, trapped in local business units, applications, data warehouses & spreadsheets. Yet while these innovative technologies are good at liberating & colocating data, this now often creates an unusable data lake, without rigid structure & where context, meaning & sources are lost. If this sounds like a familiar story for your customers, help them regain control of their data architecture with these database products

New Data Protection Laws – Make sure your customers are ready!
Data privacy in the UK is currently regulated by the ICO, but with new EU wide legislation agreed, it’s only a matter of time before a continental framework for data handling comes into force, making your customers uncompliant overnight.

Monique Goyens, director general of the European Consumer Organisation said: “This new regulation is the opportunity to close gaps, ensure robust standards and stipulate that EU laws apply to all businesses operating here.”

Don’t let your customer fall foul of this – get control of your databases with these trusted tools.

Utilising enterprise data to profit the organisation
Managing and improving data quality
Efficiently communicating data within the organisation
