Visual Foxpro programming
Secure and robust database management is highly vital for different organizations like banks, insurance companies, manufacturers and distributors. In order to move business data securely and accurately between different systems, at minimal cost, it is highly necessary to have an extensive system that can automatically pull flood certifications. Before the advent of internet, most of the data sharing was done manually via faxes. This process was highly cumbersome and time consuming.
Although internet helped these businesses manage their database in a well organized manner, it also invoked the security aspect of information sharing. Visual FoxPro from Microsoft is one such technology that has been used widely as data-centric object-oriented and procedural programming language to create a secure gateway to access databases such as SQL Server and Oracle.
We at A-1 technology have extensive expertise in database management systems like SQL Server, Oracle and Sybase. Moreover our programmers as well as developers have years of experience in creating secure gateways to access information across different database systems.
FoxPro is a text-based procedural-oriented programming language and DBMS, intended for MS-DOS, MS Windows, Apple Macintosh, and UNIX. Although FoxPro is a Database Management System (DBMS) and it does support relationships between tables, it is not considered a Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) as it lacks transaction processing. Visual FoxPro is part of Microsoft's Visual Studio suite of products. It is relatively fast for developing reusable code and enables a developer to write code to access a FoxPro database or connect to such databases as SQL Server and Oracle.
