Databases are at the heart of the systems we provide to our international clients. Choosing the right solution requires significant capability to match client requirements against database capabilities.
There are a large number of database systems on the market, but most of our attention and experience focuses on the top three systems:
• MS SQL Server – Microsoft’s flagship database product
• Oracle – The major competitor to Microsoft
• MySQL – An open source product that has established itself as the de-facto standard for Linux applications.
Nicander are specialists in the delivery of resilient database solutions for the ITS market. Our database and information processing expertise covers a wide range of applications:

From fault information to individual vehicle data, Nicander have experience of designing, implementing and delivering systems for processing real-time information in a live control room environment where decision making needs to be consistent, fast and effective.
Spatial Information – With maps being a key feature in any ITS systems, we have extensive knowledge in storing spatial information and providing spatial solutions to systems. In previous projects this includes incorporating real-time maps, modelling spatial road networks, route finding and integration of third-party geospatial information.
Reporting – Visualisation of the stored information is a key requirement from our customers. Our collaborative approach and detailed experience ensures we deliver the right reports and dashboard representation to meet client operational and business needs.
