i need advice and guidance for a new project i want to start. imagine a company with some subsections that each one has a program and a separate database on sql server 2008 express. what i want to do is unit these apps so that all of them upload their data into a unified database on a server. and then the server could for example upload the website automatically or give better reports. so i want to know what stuff i need to learn. i already am good with c# programming but not on a network, and i've done some programs with c# and sqlserver 2008 express some of which this company is using. i also like to do this one in a multilayer model.
thanks to all who answer i really need a headstart
