This was my thought too.

Joomla! has a brilliant extension available called Fabrik which is 
essentially a database & form design tool that allows the user to build 
custom storage for pretty much anything (I use it frequently on websites 
we build for customers). As it is a Joomla! extension it runs atop of 
the same MySQL database. Joomla!, being a web cms, allows the developer 
pretty much unlimited ways to present this data for user access and 
search etc.
