A typical model of database is made up of three main elements which are Objects, Attributes and Relationships. Objects (also called "entities") are of primary importance in database design. They determine which data should be captured in the database. Each object has specific Attributes (also called "properties") that characterize the nature of the object. All objects relate to each other some how, so within the same database there are Relationships between objects.
Custom databases have the same components (objects, their attributes, and their interrelationships) as typical or standard databases. The only difference is that a custom database provides users with the capability of customizing the components, while a standard database lets deal with captured information in preset configuration. In other words, custom databases let create new custom objects that best fit user requirements.
Database customization solutions allow users to customize their database objects, attributes and relationships. For example, in CentriQS Configurator customization solution you can create new entities (objects) for your custom database, set their properties (attributes), and establish relationships (math expressions) between them. In your CentriQS database you can set custom workflows (sequences of states, transitions, reasons & actions) and enumerated data types (enums) for certain entities that relate your company's business processes (e.g. accounting, sales, etc.).
