What is a database front-end? As a basic definition, it’s a web interface that lets users access, modify, delete, or add data to a database table. They’re simple enough for non-technical users to work with, and typically includes role-based security to limit which users can make database changes. A business might use a database front-end to:
- Let employees maintain customer data
- Manage and schedule shipments
- Maintain product data
- Manage customer order history
- Reduce dependence on spreadsheets
- And much, much more…
In short, it lets you manage data in your database with a user-friendly, web interface.
The big question: How quickly can you create front-ends over your database? I believe the answer to that question should be measured in minutes, and we just created a new video to show you how it’s done. The following video walks you through a start-to-finish process used to create a front-end over any relational database…in just 5 minutes. You might be surprised to learn just how simple this process is.
