Database Modeling and Design, Fourth Edition, the extensively revised edition of the classic logical database design reference, explains how you can model and design your database application in consideration of new technology or new business needs. It is an ideal text for a stand-alone data management course focused on logical database design, or a supplement to an introductory text for introductory database management.
This book features clear explanations, lots of terrific examples and an illustrative case, and practical advice, with design rules that are applicable to any SQL-based system. The common examples are based on real-life experiences and have been thoroughly class-tested. The text takes a detailed look at the Unified Modeling Language (UML-2) as well as the entity-relationship (ER) approach for data requirements specification and conceptual modeling - complemented with examples for both approaches. It also discusses the use of data modeling concepts in logical database design; the transformation of the conceptual model to the relational model and to SQL syntax; the fundamentals of database normalization through the fifth normal form; and the major issues in business intelligence such as data warehousing, OLAP for decision support systems, and data mining. There are examples for how to use the most popular CASE tools to handle complex data modeling problems, along with exercises that test understanding of all material, plus solutions for many exercises. Lecture notes and a solutions manual are also available.
This edition will appeal to professional data modelers and database design professionals, including database application designers, and database administrators (DBAs); new/novice data management professionals, such as those working on object oriented database design; and students in second courses in database focusing on design.+ a detailed look at the Unified Modeling Language (UML-2) as well as the entity-relationship (ER) approach for data requirements specification and conceptual modeling--with examples throughout the book in both approaches!
