Inuendo takes advantage of the best SQL features its respective platforms have to offer. Whether your goal is to re-energize a tired but dependable application, or new development, an Inuendo compliant database will enjoy virtually unlimited flexibility and scalability. In addition, Inuendo:

  • Can be used to support virtually any industry application.
  • Simplifies and standardizes the I/O process within application programs and scripts
  • Provides a robust field level audit trail.
  • Eliminates redundancy within the database and the application code.

Comparison of traditional database development using horizontal tables versus Inuendo’s vertical architecture and virtualized tables:

Traditional Horizontal Development Inuendo Vertical Architecture
I/O performed against growing number of tables All application tables virtualized.
Each table requires own maintenance, listing, & search utilities. Single point of maintenance, listing, & search for all virtual tables.
Tables replete with duplication and wasted space. No duplication or wasted space
Risk of orphaned or unmatched records Referential integrity protects all linkage.
Record layout changes require significant intervention and exclusive use of files. Super users add new “fields” through maintenance whenever desired, even during peak usage.
