Information Systems Development
Our company was founded in 1991, specializing in the development of
relational database systems, and it remains our core business along with
website development. Our mission is ...
"Helping clients turn the cost of data into the asset of information!"
We've provided a few PROJECT SUMMARIES to illustrate the kinds of
things we've done that have broken new ground for the clients who
sponsored them: the University of Minnesota, NETA, and Medtronic.
Our primary development software is ADBM (Advanced DB Master), created by Macon
Systems of Colorado Springs. Ken's a certified ADBM Database Administrator (DBA), and
has extensive system design experience. Click link above for ADBM specs.
Over the years, we've had the good fortune to work with wonderful clients on challenging
projects. Our success has relied heavily on the involvement of client personnel directly
and continuously in the development process; the industry term for this is “prototyping.”
It’s effective because we work "with" them, not "for" them.
Our clients help us learn their requirements, while we in turn give them a solid
understanding of the possibilities inherent in the system we're developing. It is our intent
that client organizations gain a sense of "ownership" by participating in the entire
development of a system. We're proud of the fact that our best team members are M.
Power and N. Able.
We strive to create something better than a "management information system.” To us,
that term denotes a system that supports recovery of information that has already been
defined. We think the goal should be a "leadership information system" ... flexible and
powerful enough that it will facilitate the discovery of new information.
In addition to systems development, we can help with various data cleanup tasks (for
consistency & correctness), merging of data from various sources, removing duplicate
records, matching of lists, preparation and/or selection of mailing lists, and publication of
large amounts of data in HTML format (catalogs, price lists, membership lists, etc.), and
data format conversion.
This short description of our services doesn't cover everything we can do, but if you have
any kind of a data storage, retrieval, or manipulation challenge, please contact us. Give us
the opportunity to show you how your organization can "turn the cost of data into the
asset of information."
aviceda is the name of a south pacific bird of prey ... we chose it just because we liked it

waves along Sheboygan’s
north breakwater in Sept

Sheboygan is the “surfing
capital of the Great Lakes”
... and the most action is in
fall and winter, when the
winds whip up some huge
breakers. Yes, wetsuits.
