The result is that business operations run smoother and decisions can be made faster. Leading enterprises, from Fortune 50 global corporations to start-ups, depend upon Practical to get business done.

“Leading companies need to get a handle on information overload. Instead of having business critical information sitting on desktop computers running stand-alone Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Access applications, we enable companies to share and control the information over a network or the internet with the same ease-of-use as found in Microsoft Office applications,” said Tripp Micou, Practical’s founder and CEO. “We are nationally recognized as an innovator and leader using Microsoft .NET technologies, SQL Server Databases, Microsoft Smart Clients, and data visualization (business intelligence) software.”

Much of Practical’s recent growth comes from the energy sector. Other markets that represent a significant portion of Practical’s database consulting business include insurance, legal, manufacturing, health care, and the utilities industry. A new and rapidly increasing segment part of Practical’s business comes from data visualization and business intelligence. Practical is able to present complex data sets in simple, usable, graphical forms.
