Synopses & Reviews
Database systems and database design technology have seen significant changes in recent years. The relational data model and relational database systems dominate applications; in turn, they are extended by other technologies like data warehousing, OLAP, and data mining. Businesses are expanding and require well-constructed databases to track their new and various needs. How do you model and design your database application in the event of new technology or new business needs?
The answers are all in the fifth edition of Database Modeling and Design: Logical Design. This book shows you how to develop data modeling concepts and logical database design consistently over a wide scope in a way that will support the needs of your enterprise. Updated clear explanations, in-depth detail, real-world examples, and illustrative case studies provide you with practical advice that you can count on—with design rules that are applicable to any SQL-based system.
NEW to this edition:
*NEW- A whole chapter devoted to XML and web databases. What you need to know to utilize XML rather than relational tables.
*A whole chapter describing Object Relational Design. Learn how to make a choice between what is in the database as a BLOB and what is outside in a separate file.
"Database Modeling and Design
is one of the best books that I have seen for explaining how to build database applications. The book is informative, well-written, and concise."-Michael Blaha, DSc., Consultant, Modelsoft Consulting Corp
"This book book is by far the best book available on classic database design. Topics like normalization and many-to-many and n-ary association semantics are without peer in teaching you how to model real-world complexities. This latest edition extends the classic material with extensive discussion of modern tools and other aspects of logical database design. Every database architect should have this book at hand."-Bob Muller, Data Analyst, Poesys Associates
The database professional's only complete business intelligence guide to data modeling concepts and logical database design.
Database systems and database design technology have undergone significant evolution in recent years. The relational data model and relational database systems dominate business applications; in turn, they are extended by other technologies like data warehousing, OLAP, and data mining. How do you model and design your database application in consideration of new technology or new business needs?
In the extensively revised fifth edition, you ll get clear explanations, lots of terrific examples and an illustrative case, and the really practical advice you have come to count on--with design rules that are applicable to any SQL-based system. But you ll also get plenty to help you grow from a new database designer to an experienced designer developing industrial-sized systems.
In-depth detail and plenty of real-world, practical examples throughout
Loaded with design rules and illustrative case studies that are applicable to any SQL, UML, or XML-based system
Immediately useful to anyone tasked with the creation of data models for the integration of large-scale enterprise data.
