Database Management Systems: Designing and Building Business Applications

Database Management Systems (DBMSs) are powerful tools for storing and retrieving data. Because of their power, they form the foundation of almost every business application, including enterprise systems and Web sites. Every MIS/CIS/CS student needs to know how to create and use databases.

To use a DBMS, you need to learn several basic skills:

  1. How to design the tables used to store data (Data normalization).
  2. How to retrieve data with queries (SQL).
  3. How to create forms and reports to store and retrieve the data (Applications).
  4. How to configure the DBMS for performance and security (Administration).

This textbook contains several powerful features to make it easy to learn to build database applications. Many of the features are unique to this book.
