Our company operates on a system using a microcomputer as a file server for our data and a uses outlook with an external web host for email. I am trying to convince them to drastically update their system to allow Regional Employees dial in access to the network. (Novell).
I just moved into a change management positiona and will be heading up the merger of 3 out of 5 divisions. it is the perfect time for upgrades, and we have the funds. However, I need to convince them to scrap the current program (BASIC) and move into SQL or similiar.
Company info: About 120 years old. We have thousands of customers worldwide. We also have a merchandising division that services thousands of stores a month. What suggestions do you have on servers or databases that work best with external dial-in access. We only have about 45 people in our corporate office.
We are also planning on using new scanning devices within the next year. Can you provide any advice?
