The Skysoft Software Database has been structured as a tree. This structure is wrong in our view: the software has a structure by far too complex to be rapresented in such a bidimensional way. Consideration of Database implementation and ease of consultation led us to strip dow such a complexity.

Here there is the present database structure. By the dynamic nature of Skysoft approach, this can be slighthly outdated.
