I wrote few generic functions and use it with helm, it works for
me. It is not ready for public. Web interface works based on Gedafe[1]
and then I wrote access to it through console Common Lisp and then
also through Emacs Lisp.

I am using Emacs module `emacs-libpq'[2] to interact with PostgreSQL.

Let's say I am looking for somebody, Hyper-C asks me for query, I
enter something, then I can choose to open Org file relating to the
person. When dealing with various companies, things related to a
company shall be in the directory related to company. Things related
to person, for example assignments related to one person shall be in
the file belonging to that person.

That way full file can be sent to the person for review, it becomes
clear what has been done, and what is yet to be done.

Mixing assignments, TODO, agendas from all subjects, groups and
persons into one file would give me terrible confusion.
