Pacific Data Management: Where database art meets science.

Pacific Data Management (PDM) is a database consulting and development firm based in the San Francisco Bay Area, and a FileMaker 15 Certified Developer. From our location in downtown San Jose, we service the entire western region of the United States. We specialize in FileMaker development, as well as FileMaker-to-web and FileMaker Go integration.

At Pacific Data Management we believe that database design is an art and a science. It requires both immense creativity and proven development expertise. An artistic bent and a scientific approach. As if this isn't challenging enough, it requires continually juggling internal resources, responding quickly to critical requests, and consistently delivering fully functional, high-performance database applications your company can count on -- day in and day out. It's a tough balancing act.

At Pacific Data Management, we understand what you're up against. We know the database design business inside and out. We've spent years refining our skills in project management, database development, programming and network design. We have the resources to manage everything from quick turnaround projects all the way to enterprise-wide and distributed systems. We have the passion of artists, yet work as a highly disciplined, professional team. So if you want the right database design, start with the right database design team.

A security clearance is a status granted to individuals allowing access to classified information. The term "security clearance" is also sometimes used in private organizations that have a formal process to vet employees for access to sensitive information. Anyone with access to classified data requires a clearance at or higher than the level the data is classified at. For this reason security clearances are required for a wide range of jobs, from senior management to contractors and sub-contractors.
