Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"These books are a must for any company implementing data models. They contain practical insights and templates of universal data models which can be used by all enterprises, regardless of their level of experience."-Ron Powell, Publisher, DM Review

If you've relied on The Data Model Resource Book, Revised Edition, Volume 1 (0-471-38023-7) to jump-start your system development efforts, then you know that using a library of proven data models and data warehouse designs can produce huge savings in development costs. But what about the unique needs of your industry?

The Data Model Resource Book, Revised Edition, Volume 2, provides data models specifically tailored to your industry. It includes both brand-new models for each industry and generic models that the author customizes. The result is a comprehensive library of the industry's core data models and applications, including models for:

* Financial services

* Professional services

* E-commerce

* Manufacturing

* Health care

* Insurance

* Travel

* Telecommunications

You not only get the data models themselves, you also learn to:

* Apply reusable data designs across a broad variety of industries

* Integrate databases and data warehouses across your organization

* Combine models from different applications for your specific needs

* Use the data structures to provide quality assurance for your own models

* Employ the book's star schema designs to develop data analysis solutions

You can save even more time and money with the Data Model Resource Book, Revised Edition, Volume 2, CD-ROM, which:

* Provides the SQL code you'll need to implement the models described in the book or to reverse-engineer them into your CASE tool

* Allows you to view for free the demonstration of data models from both Volume 1 and Volume 2

* Allows you to purchase online the downloadable models by industry type-directions inside

Synopsis:

This book tackles Web based training using text backed up with illustrations and examples, and presented in a user-friendly manner. It walks the reader through the design and set up of a Web-based training system.

Synopsis:

A quick and reliable way to build proven databases for core business functions

Industry experts raved about The Data Model Resource Book when it was first published in March 1997 because it provided a simple, cost-effective way to design databases for core business functions. Len Silverston has now revised and updated the hugely successful First Edition, while adding a companion volume to take care of more specific requirements of different businesses. Each volume is accompanied by a CD-ROM, which is sold separately. Each CD-ROM provides powerful design templates discussed in the books in a ready-to-use electronic format, allowing companies and individuals to develop the databases they need at a fraction of the cost and a third of the time it would take to build them from scratch.

With each business function boasting its own directory, this CD-ROM provides a variety of data models for specific implementations in such areas as financial services, insurance, retail, healthcare, universities, and telecom.

Synopsis:

The surge in the number of online training sites has created an unprecedented demand for experts who know all aspects of Web-based training (WBT) site design. Written by bestselling author William Horton, this book provides the hands-on and practical guidance that trainers demand. Packed with over 100 examples, this well-illustrated guide walks you through every phase of designing WBT, from analyzing your course requirements and assessing the needs of potential students to designing a course for a global audience.

You'll find out how to combine elements into effective and interesting learning sequences, discover how to overcome any technical hurdle that may arise, how to offer materials that motivate learning, and how to use Web technologies to create 21st-century alternatives to traditional courses.

Praise for Designing Web-Based Training

"Horton has done it again! He's addressed the cutting-edge problem of Web-based training design with his pragmatic, research-based approach. His work is task-oriented and down-to-earth. He doesn't waste our time with excessive educational philosophy. In short-comprehensive overview, practical advice, engaging presentation."-Robert E. Horn, Author, Visual
