Database Management 1
Modern enterprises rely on the efficient storage and management of data. An organisation’s data provides information that is vital for its day-to-day existence. Corporate data structures can also be formed to serve as a knowledge repository for the organisation. These provide a basis for strategic decisions and enhance competitive advantage.
This course provides the foundational knowledge of database systems and their implementation with elementary programming skills. The course covers both the theoretical content and the practical implementation of database requirements for organisations. It presents the basics of information storage and management, from the conceptual modelling of an organisation’s data requirements using the relational model, through to the implementation of these requirements with tools such as SQL and techniques such as normalisation. It also addresses the practical issues of security and concurrency in data transactions. It introduces elementary programming techniques.
