Database Development Case Studies

Green Hills Memorial Park

Green Hills Memorial Park utilizes a legacy AS400 system on which they originally maintained over 74,000 interment records. We ported this historical data to form the foundation for the new database application we created. They wanted to make their database of interment records available and searchable online. To fulfill this requirement, we developed a set of web-based tools to allow their staff to add or update interment services records. It provided an easy way to present upcoming service schedules to the public.

Their web site features a burial plot lookup feature which displays exactly where a certain plot lies in the park. A link to purchase flowers automatically carries over the plot location information, which informs the flower shop exactly where to place the flowers.

The Volunteer Center, South Bay

The Volunteer Center of South Bay maintains a listing of available volunteer opportunities in the South Bay, CA area. Visitors can see a variety of information on each of the openings available. A flat file database stores volunteer opportunity information, which is retrieved and displayed using CGI scripts. The list is managed by Volunteer Center staff through a series of administration screens.

Torrance Memorial Medical Center

Torrance Memorial Medical Center approched us to create a searchable database of jobs accessible through their web site. Using CGI scripts and a flat file database, we created a dynamic display of open positions at the Medical Center. Staff can add or delete positions as they become available or are filled through a simple set of management screens.

Torrance Memorial also makes available a dynamic list of baby arrivals, which is managed through a flat file database as well. Clicking on a button displays the baby's photo and a message from the new parents.

Kawa Golf

The Kawa Golf site utilizes a MySQL database and custom PHP code to provide a framework for their golf contact management concept. The Kawa Network is a service which allows golfers wishing to golf group outings to find eachother easily. It relates golfers based on their business function, golf ability level, and location, and provides an anonymous way for them to contact one another. The site also provides a dynamic listing of golf tournaments and tee time specials, administered through a web-based control panel.
