Description & Features
(Click HERE for full Preface.)
Designed for use in undergraduate and graduate information systems database courses, this is an introductory yet comprehensive text that requires no prerequisites. Its goal is to provide a significant level of database expertise to students. This edition was formerly published by Pearson Education, Inc, and is identical to that text except for some minor corrections. Key features include:
- Covers operational and analytical database systems. Students will learn to design and use operational and analytical databases and will be prepared to apply their knowledge in today’s business environments.
- Provides a theoretical foundation and meaningful hands-on experiences
- The book’s website includes access to the free Web-based data modelling suite ERDPlus designed and developed in conjunction with the text. Students and instructors can use ERDPlus to create ER diagrams, relational schemas, and dimensional models (star schemas.) Click here for more info: erdplus.com
