More informations about this product

Description

A subscription to the cloud-based Caspio database provides access to browser-based tools for creating both databases and web interfaces to them. This subscription is intended for IT professionals and for others comfortable with software and web applications.

This offer provides access to a discount on a one-year subscription to the Caspio Standard Plan. After you request this offer and pay TechSoup's administrative fee, you'll then pay Caspio directly for the discounted subscription. See details below.

Benefits for Organizations

With minimal programming experience, you can use a Caspio subscription to:

  • Create database applications for volunteer registration, membership systems, contact management, donor listings, staff directories, petitions, training schedules, and public-facing searchable databases.
  • Free your organization from the need to own and maintain server hardware to host databases.
  • Create mobile applications accessible with iPhone, iPad, Android, and Blackberry.

Major Capabilities

  • Database tables: You can create databases either from scratch or by importing existing data. Sources include Microsoft Access and Excel, comma-separated values, fixed-width text, and delimited text files. Wizards guide you through the steps needed to create database tables.
  • DataPages: You can create database-driven forms, reports, charts, and searches called DataPages. Wizards guide you through both creation and customizing the look and feel. You will typically deploy DataPages by embedding JavaScript code generated by Caspio into your own web pages. However, Caspio can also host them and let you link to them.
  • Database applications: You can create larger database applications that make use of several DataPages. (Caspio uses the term "app" to describe these applications as well as individual DataPages.) Caspio's app-building wizards walk you through creation of customized web applications that can be configured with various interfaces.
  • Mobile applications: Every Caspio database application also works as a mobile web application that will run on iPhone, iPad, Android, and Blackberry devices. If you want to target a particular platform, you can use style sheets to give your app a native look.
  • Security and scalability: Caspio's online database platform gives you security and scalability through clustered databases, firewalls, and load-balanced web servers. Your data is backed up daily. Caspio's security and reliability standards include SSL, SAS 70, PCI compliance, Section 508 accessibility, and TRUSTe certification.

Access to Discounted Rates
