Book News Annotation:
The context of database management, database analysis, database design and implementation, and advanced topics are covered in this text for an introductory course in database management as part of an information systems curriculum in business schools, computer technology programs, and applied computer science departments. This sixth edition reflects the rapid changes in the field, with discussion of Web-enabled systems design and programming within an overall client/server architecture for systems, large-scale databases and data warehouses, database performance in an online environment, and SQL as a standard for database querying. Material has been rewritten to emphasize the Internet, intranet, and extranet as implementations of the client-server architecture. New screen captures reflect the latest database technologies, and a list of Web resources is also new. Hoffer teaches at the University of Dayton.
