If concerns about existing data sources are preventing your organization from transitioning to the FileMaker platform, we have the tools and experience to facilitate a seamless integration.
After presenting at several FileMaker Developer Conferences over the past few years, our team members have become recognized as SQL server integration experts on the FileMaker platform.
Wondering how your business will benefit from SQL integration on the FileMaker platform? Here are a few hypothetical case studies to give you a more concrete understanding of the possibilities.
A large entertainment client uses an executive mobile dashboard built with the FileMaker platform to track licensee information, development pipeline, sales, and expenses. Information is compiled from several different data sources, including Oracle and SAP. Despite using a variety of databases, executives can create charts and graphs, view summary reports, and analyze data in one place with an integrated FileMaker solution. Because information is simultaneously available on mobile devices and computers, key decision makers can access the data they need wherever they are.
A local company sells photography equipment through an online web store. Transaction data from the store is captured and stored in an SQL database. But without a programmer, management has a difficult time building reports from the SQL database. A read-only link from FileMaker to the SQL database empowers employees to create their own reports.
A human resources department houses data in an SQL data source but needs to link processes with the finance department. Using the External SQL Data Source feature, the two departments seamlessly share data to streamline their operations. By making data accessible to team members who need it, FileMaker facilitates reporting and solutions that meet the unique needs of intertwined departments while giving the organization an edge over the competition.
