The objective of any information system is to get the correct information to the right people at the right time. No matter how clever the programs may be, if the data is not classified and stored properly, the objective may be impossible to reach. Database management and design aims to develop any portion of the corporate database so it will furnish all foreseeable information needs and be sufficiently flexible to adapt to changing needs and environments. The course addresses the tools and techniques used to design the conceptual model of the database and the implementation of that design using the relational database model. Topics include data modeling, E-R diagrams, data normalization, SQL, Client-Server environments and distributed databases.
