Not So Much ‘Out with the Old’….
When we were charged with developing a new web-based admin system for Sixteen47 it presented a considerable challenge of how best to develop something new whilst maintaining the integrity of the existing system.
Our initial work involved unifying two pre-existing admin systems, both of which contained a large amount of legacy data that had to be cleaned, optimised, reformatted and imported. The database was completely redesigned and rewritten to use Microsoft SQL Server which allowed us to properly normalise the database – removing any bad data – and to minimize the redundancy of that data.
