Introduction

Identify The problem is that a company has requested that it have a system to store the names and addresses of people it contacts through its telephone support service. This has been requested by a company called "dataManage", who provide computer software to individuals and also data retrieval systems. They say that they have to be able to quickly retrieve data from a database and access user's information. They want a system that can give the support assistant a list of people they are likely to be contacted by, and be able to modify the information about the user quickly, should it be needed.

Conclusion

The system is capable of storing any number of records, and is optimised to allow the maximum storage with minimum space Evaluation The company received the project and commented on the quality of it.
