Sales & marketing application
Create utlitiles to simply install an application at client sites.
Paola worked on a product targeted at sales and marketing departments. Consensus had developed a base product using an Omnis database - they customised the product for each client.
She was solely responsible for designing and implementing a suite of utilities which would allow the product to work off existing client databases on different server types without changing the code.
Paola first performed a review of the product and then re-organised the database procedures so that future development time would be reduced.
Most of her time was spent customising the base system to work off a client's existing Informix database. Paola assisted with testing and installation, and produced a programmer's guide to the utilities and conversion process.
