  18. ACKNOWLEDGMENTS I owe much to my parents for providing me with an excellent education and a love of both learning and teaching. I credit The Boys’ Latin School of Maryland and the late Jack H. Williams, headmaster, with teaching me to write effectively. And I credit Transylvania University and Dr. James E. Miller for introducing me to the fascinating world of information systems and providing me with the tools for continuous learning. I’d like to thank the wonderful people at McGraw-Hill/Osborne for the opportunity to write my first book and for their excellent support during the writing process. Finally, my thanks to my wife Laurie and our sons Keith and Luke for their support, patience, and understanding during the long hours it took to produce this book. xvii Copyright © 2004 by The McGraw-Hill Companies.

  20. INTRODUCTION Thirty years ago, databases were found only in special research laboratories where computer scientists struggled with ways to make them efficient and useful, and pub- lished their findings in countless research papers. Today databases are a ubiquitous part of the information technology (IT) industry and business in general. We directly and indirectly use databases every day—banking transactions, travel reservations, employment relationships, web site searches, purchases, and most other transac- tions are recorded in and served by databases. As with many fast-growing technologies, industry standards have lagged behind the development of database technology, resulting in a myriad of commercial prod- ucts, each following a particular software vendor’s vision. Moreover, a number of different database models have emerged, with the relational model being the most prevalent. Databases Demystified examines all of the major database models, in- cluding hierarchical, network, relational, object-oriented, and object-relational. However, Databases Demystified concentrates heavily upon the relational and ob- ject-relational models because these are the mainstream of the IT industry and will likely remain so in the foreseeable future. The most significant challenge in implementing a database is designing the struc- ture of the database correctly. Without a thorough understanding of the problem the database is intended to solve, and without knowledge of the best practices for orga- nizing the required data, the implemented database becomes an unwieldy beast that requires constant attention. Databases Demystified focuses on transformation of re- quirements into a working database model with special emphasis on a process called normalization, which has proven to be an effective technique for designing rela- tional databases. In fact, normalization can be applied successfully to other database models. And, in keeping with the notion that you cannot design an automobile if you xix Copyright © 2004 by The McGraw-Hill Companies. Click here for terms of use.
