dbFront Reviews

about dbFront · · Helpful Not helpful

We have a ton of user maintained tables. The majority of them are small custom mappings to group data in a different way for reporting purposes. Our previous solution was to have users load excel files and replace the reporting table with the contents of the excel file. The majority of users could not keep the formatting consistent and constantly required intervention to get the data loaded. With this application the users and the db admins are happy!!

The application is easy to install, fits within out supported platforms, easy to configure, and the support is awesome. This has been the app we've been looking for and needed for many years!

Quite simply, this product lets you use the power of a database to maintain & report on your data without the need for any front end programming. Providing you use foreign key constraints to maintain your data relationships dbFront will do the rest for you. It provides you with effective control over user authentication & database access and auditing. You can determine which columns to display or hide, which to allow to be read only and which are required. You also have control over the sequence in which columns are shown on the screen. It handles lookup tables well with the ability to sequence the lookup drop down data in any sequence you like. If you want to add business logic into all of this you can always utilise back end database triggers and the dbFront provided Action Buttons. It allows you to easily define who can Read/Update/Delete rows on any table. I needed dbFront because although I am an experienced database designer/developer my user interface development skills are sadly way out of date. dbFront allows me to provide a standardised front end for my users to maintain and report on their data.
The support I have received from the dbFront team has been excellent.
