About us

Steve Backman founded Database Designs in 1989 with the goal of bringing his knowedge and experience in software development and technology strategy to nonprofits, labor unions, public sector organizations and innovative small businesses. His goal was — and remains — to make technology affordable and accessible to these sectors which often have limited budgets, staffing and technical infrastructure.

The skills and technologies Database Designs offers its clients have evolved and expanded over the years. Many of our original clients from the 1990s are still happily using custom Microsoft Access and .net databases. In many other cases, we have worked with new and existing clients to transition them to newer web and Cloud-based data systems.

We also offer web design and implementation services to build clean, well-designed websites that integrate with back-end databases from the simple to the highly complex, as well as Intranets that promote collaboration and efficiency among colleagues.

Steve has chosen to keep the company small, independent and focused on providing select clients comprehensive support in creating unique, mission-critical, data-driven systems. To keep up with our growth and the everchanging and diverse technology landscape, Database Designs has grown from a company of three to a company with a management team and a great crew of consultants.

Database Designs stands out from other software consulting practices in its commitment to maintaining long-term relationships with the organizations we work with. We are client-oriented, not just project-oriented.
