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.
