Essential Physics in the World Around Usby W H Inmon
Synopses & Reviews
About This Book Here W.H. Inmon defines the systems development guidelines and principles that ought to govern the client/server environment—what they are, how they are implemented, and what happens if they are ignored—and develops an architecture that applies across all client/server environments. Inmon provides practical solutions to help build sound and stable client/server applications. He covers performance issues, control of update, ownership vs. stewardship of data, differences between operational and decision support processing, application-by-application development vs. integration, metadata, requirements-driven vs. data-driven development, decision support processing, and more. In this revised edition, Inmon introduces important concepts such as the "pure" server environment, data warehouse, and organizational dynamics, plus a micro/macro vision of the system.
