Billing Database, where to store information
We are creating a new billing database at our ISP. It is going to be
completely web based. Would it be better to store the billing info (such
as customer info, etc.) in the billing database backend (like mysql), and
then just have ldap code that, everytime there is a change made, updates
the ldap database with the information it needs? Or should we store data
in two different plaes, such as first name, last name, phone #, address,
etc. is stored in ldap, while current amount due, services offered, etc.
is stored in the mysql database backend.
I kind of like the first idea, that way the billing database updates ldap,
instead of relying on it. Plus, then I wouldn't have to split the primary
source of information into two different locations. Just want to know
what others think...thanks!
