Hi.

I work for a company that offers services online (sort of an add page company).  We have our own customers tables.  The data in those tables are used by us to segmentate as well as to validate login and so on, and we are reviewing some e-commerce platforms in order to ease up our discount policy.
I want to know if magento can use product and customer data from external databases, and if it is possible to define discounts, promotions and stuff according to a segmentation defined in our tables rather than in magento’s tables.

I would really appreciate your help.

Magento has a nice XML API http://www.magentocommerce.com/support/magento_core_api , but i do not think that the API alone (without customizations) could solve your problem.
