This book explains the fundamentals of data modelling and its importance in the development of quality information systems. The text illustrates how data modelling is applied in practice and includes detailed examples to show data structures which are encountered in systems development. Describing the environment in which data modelling is performed, such as administration and CASE, the authors seek to clarify the similarities and differences between traditional data modelling and object-oriented modelling and thus to provide a conceptual framework for the migration from one to the other. A selection of illustrated physical implementations on different DBMSs are provided, and the techniques of behavioural data modelling are demonstrated. This is a higher level, rather than introductory, text aimed at final year students of a business information systems degree and those computer science degrees which address organizational/management aspects of their specialism during the final year.
