This unit introduces a practical approach to understanding and modelling the world in terms of data entities, attributes and relationships. The emphasis is placed on analysis and design for relational database management systems in an organisational environment using database design patterns for typical domains. Expertise in the structured query language (SQL) is developed. The means for database quality evaluation, including normal forms, conformance with standards, testing techniques security and privacy are reviewed along with database management systems services including backup and recovery, cloud storage, etc.
