Topincs is a online database software. Given a data model, it allows
- data to be recorded and files to be uploaded and annotated through forms,
- data and files to be displayed and navigated through interconnected data sheets, and
- all that searched in the index.
It overcomes the rigidity of relational databases by using semantic technology. In the simplest use case, a group of users can collaboratively edit information and upload files from any device with a web browser and an internet connection. Development time ranges between 1 and 8 hours.
By designing and implementing services, the data can be manipulated, transformed and aggregated through an virtual object oriented programming interface driven by the data model. This allows sophisticated use cases where different user groups with different rights are presented a completely different application working on the same database. In these cases development time ranges between 2 and 20 days.
