Today's database professionals must understand how to apply database systems to business processes and how to develop database systems for both business intelligence and Web-based applications. Database Development and Management explains all aspects of database design, access, implementation, application development, and management, as well as data analysis for business intelligence. This self-contained text gives students hands-on projects required for professionally developing and managing databases. It provides detailed instruction via an easy-to-follow, step-by-step case-based approach. Following an introduction to database components, the book uses case studies to illustrate the modeling process, covers table structures and normalization, and analyzes the transformation of a data model to a relational database. It explains the use of SQL in managing database objects and in querying databases, then discusses Transact-SQL and the views, indexes, and cursors that bridge databases and their applications. The book examines three major data-accessing techniques, and then shows how to develop sophisticated applications based upon the material included in previous chapters. It explores the use of databases in network environments, and details the multiple tasks handled by database administrators (DBAs). The text also discusses the OnLine Analytical Processing (OLAP) system, data warehousing, and other analysis tools that support business intelligence and decision making. It concludes with a review of data mining.

A Practical Approach

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
This book addresses issues related to managing data across a distributed database system. It is unique because it covers traditional database theory and current research, explaining the difficulties in providing a unified user interface and global data dictionary. The book gives implementers guidance on hiding discrepancies across systems and creating the illusion of a single repository for users. It also includes three sample frameworks—implemented using J2SE with JMS, J2EE, and Microsoft .Net—that readers can use to learn how to implement a distributed database management system. IT and development groups and computer sciences/software engineering graduates will find this guide invaluable.

What Relational Databases Are Really All About
Author: C.J. Date
Publisher: "O'Reilly Media, Inc."
All of today’s mainstream database products support the SQL language, and relational theory is what SQL is supposed to be based on. But are those products truly relational? Sadly, the answer is no. This book shows you what a real relational product would be like, and how and why it would be so much better than what’s currently available. With this unique book, you will: Learn how to see database systems as programming systems Get a careful, precise, and detailed definition of the relational model Explore a detailed analysis of SQL from a relational point of view There are literally hundreds of books on relational theory or the SQL language or both. But this one is different. First, nobody is more qualified than Chris Date to write such a book. He and Ted Codd, inventor of the relational model, were colleagues for many years, and Chris’s involvement with the technology goes back to the time of Codd’s first papers in 1969 and 1970. Second, most books try to use SQL as a vehicle for teaching relational theory, but this book deliberately takes the opposite approach. Its primary aim is to teach relational theory as such. Then it uses that theory as a vehicle for teaching SQL, showing in particular how that theory can help with the practical problem of using SQL correctly and productively. Any computer professional who wants to understand what relational systems are all about can benefit from this book. No prior knowledge of databases is assumed.
