The modern privately run social services agency exists within a complex regulatory framework that requires detailed recordkeeping. In such an environment, paperwork tracking is best managed by a centralized enterprise data management system. While commercial applications that perform this function exist, they are frequently bundled with software for other business functions. Such additional software can be helpful, but it frequently duplicates the functionality of other enterprise software for these businesses, which is financially inefficient. This project developed a similar system using the ASP.NET 4.5 framework that is designed to provide a standalone solution to recordkeeping requirements. It followed a typical agile development cycle. Software requirements were gathered, design documents were drafted, and the application was developed. It was deployed to the Microsoft Azure cloud for testing. The results indicate that it could be a viable alternative to the bundled offerings available in the market with some additional development and tweaking for Microsoft Azure in future iterations.
