XYZ Corp manufactures and distributes widgets to many different retail chains throughout the US. XYZ has a very low cost and mostly manual system, they also use Access? and Excel? in order to capture and analyze data, but they are finding that their data is not well-integrated and this is causing problems.

You will need to explain specifically how this is accomplished by your proposed solution (an RDBMS). Explain also how the three problems created by data redundancy can be overcome using a modern RDBMS. Show them how a RDBMS can help to integrate their currently isolated pockets of data and how they may be able to improve productivity and improve decision making by making the switch to a more centralized solution. Explain how your proposed solution could have eliminated the recent issue they had with the Excel spreadsheet by providing increased data independence.;Your presentation should be at least 10 slides. Each slide should be informative and entertaining without being distracting. You only have this one opportunity to solidify the sale, so the presentation needs to be carefully focused. You need to capture their attention and hit on the key points, so you do not want too much information on each slide.
