In basic terms, a database is simply a collection of information that is organized into records that can be searched. The system utilized in managing the database is known as database management system (DBMS). The linking of database records, in complete compliance with sound DBMS referential integrity rules, is what YooFoo refers to as database integration. Since, each type of database structure has its own pros and cons, YooFoo will assist its clients in thoroughly evaluating and determining the best relational, network, hierarchy and object oriented DBMS models, which optimally serve their needs.
YooFoo utilize international data and messaging standards to ensure DBMS implementations are interoperable. We recommend steps that database integration leaders can take to better address user needs and better prepare for using a wider range of data integration styles. YooFoo’s models will empower its clients with the ability to (a) update and retrieve data, (b) facilitate concurrent data updates by multiple DMS users, (c) institute data archival and recovery mechanisms.
