Training Services - Database Design

Using a database, interrogating it and maintaining it, is one thing. Building a database is another thing entirely.

If you think there isn't a hard earned skill in constructing or configuring your database so it supports your reserves data to auditable standards - don't bank on it.

Whether you are going to use and 'off the shelf' resources oriented database, or a conventional relational database like SQL Server, Ingres or Access, failing to provide a robust and competent design can cause enormous problems, once you start to load in the volumes of data that you know need to be stuffed in there!

With more than 30 years of experience and training in database technologies, and having built databases ranging from small to gigundeous, SDC can help you in the considered and structured design of your database needs, whether they be -

  • Geological
  • Mine Engineering
  • Ore Reserves
  • Grade Control
  • Production Reporting
  • Geotechnical
  • Environmental

Apart from these traditional SQL databases, we can also help you with some of the new technology databases such as Vectorwise, in which you can create datbases of billions of records, that can be searched and interrogated in minutes. (We're working on some secret squirrel stuff here....)
