This unit is designed to introduce students to the fundamental concepts necessary for the analysis, design, use and implementation of a database management system for the management of data in modern organisations. Students will develop skills in planning, designing, and implementing a data model using an enterprise-scale database system. This unit is designed for students to extend their programming abilities in developing relatively large database applications. Topics covered include the principal aspects of database development and applications, advanced queries to populate, retrieve, and update data, database programming with triggers, procedures and functions. This unit also introduces students to the principles and practice of administering enterprise-level database systems. Topics include database architecture; DBMS installation and configuration issues; user management and DBA tools.
