Designing an information system with given requirements RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would appreciate some advice on technology stack to implement an information system with the following requirements:

    + Information system backed by a database to help management plan and monitor activities.
    + Assess quality of information.
    + Provide fine grained access control.
    + Reporting abilities (quarterly, annual reports, etc.).
    + Provide access to documents in several formats: PDF, MSWord, Excel, etc.
    + Flexible database that allows easy changes, insert new information.
    + Ability to interface with SAP which is used in the accounting and HR department.

    They want to base their technology on Microsoft products though I don't think it is mandatory.
    Would you use a traditional RDBMS or NoSQL (Document-oriented database)?
    Would a framework like Sharepoint be appropriate for this? 

    Any suggestions are appreciated.
