17th September 2020: PostgreSQL 13 RC 1 Released!

Nigerian Nursing & Midwifery Council Migrates to PostgreSQL.

Posted on 2004-05-24

The Nigerian Nursing and Midwifery Council has migrated its data to PostgreSQL database from MS.

The database covers the National Nurses & Midwives Records, Indexing and Examinations Processing.

The migration is being implemented by a Nigerian Software Development Outfit - ShepherdHill Software based in Lagos.

The implementation is based on the eMetria version of PostgreSQL (7.3.4) until the version 7.5 would be released for production use.

The various departmental software packages developed with Visual Basic are intefaced to the central PostgreSQL repository with the psqlODBC.

Also, the central Accounting and Personnel Management Software System under development are targeted at PostgreSQL Database.

It might interest you to know that the Company has successfully implemented a National Ministers Database project for one the biggest church in Nigeria using the PostgreSQL as the data repository.

We believe in PostreSQL. We believe in you all.

Best regards.
