Management and Budget Reporting

Let us help you develop a strategy to ensure that your organization has a successful ProLaw database implementation.  We accomplish this by making recommendations on hardware requirements and configuration, accessing network capability, database platforms, and licensing of your relational database management system.  If replication is necessary, we will recommend and design the topology that makes the most sense for your organization.

If you have already achieved a successful ProLaw implementation, we can still help your organization utilize ProLaw to its fullest potential.  We will analyze your existing database(s) and make recommendations to better troubleshoot; optimize and tune; and secure and streamline existing procedures, triggers, and ad hoc SQL statements through code review and audits.  We will also recommend, if necessary, beneficial third-party software that will help your organization reach its goals.
