Got smarts? Get Savvy!

SavvyData Inc. is a database consulting, development, and training company based in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are a FileMaker authorized training organization and have earned every developer certification that FileMaker has offered.

SavvyData builds custom database solutions and data-driven Web sites. We discover our clients' specific real needs, then design smart and user-friendly solutions using the best applicable technologies. Our solutions are delivered within budget and schedule spec, with top quality in every step of the process. Why choose SavvyData to create or enhance your data solutions? Because we're Fast, Talented, Economical--and Committed to your success.

Our specialty is embedding data visualization capabilities into FileMaker solutions. This isn't just a fancy name for charting--our data management and charting solutions can do seriously heavy lifting. Our definition of data visualization (aka datavis) is "to communicate information clearly and effectively for the purpose of decision support." Think of it as graphical data analysis with a bias for doing something with that new knowledge. Our focus here is to build solutions that allow you to interact with your legacy or newly-collected data, to quickly understand and interpret the data to spot exceptions and identify trends.

We also offer authorized training on one of our favorite tools of the information age: FileMaker Pro. Whether you're a FileMaker novice, power user or accomplished developer, we offer classes guaranteed to improve your skills and to provide several Aha! moments... or your money back.

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.
