Database: D b Organized collection of logically related data Data: Stored representations of meaningful objects and events
Structured: Numbers, text, dates Unstructured: Images, video, documents

Information: Data processed to increase knowledge in the person using the data Metadata: Data that describes the properties and context of user data

Data in context

Context helps users understand data

Summarized data Graphical displays turn data into useful information that managers can use for decision making and interpretation .

Descriptions of the properties or characteristics of the data. and data context . field sizes. including data types. allowable values.

Disadvantages of File Processing ProgramProgram-Data Dependence All programs maintain metadata for each file they use Duplication of Data l f Different systems/programs have separate copies of the same data Limited Data Sharing No centralized control of data Lengthy Development Times Programmers must design their own file formats Excessive Program Maintenance g 80% of information systems budget .

inserting. and deleting data Lack of coordination and central control NonNon-standard file formats .Problems with Data D P bl ith D t Dependency d Each application programmer must maintain his/her own data Each application program needs to include code for the metadata of each file Each application program must have its own processing routines for reading. updating.

Duplicate Data .

Problems with Data Redundancy Waste of space to have duplicate data Causes more maintenance h d h C i t headaches The biggest problem: gg p Data changes in one file could cause inconsistencies Compromises in data integrity .

Comparison of enterprise and project level data models Segment of an enterprise data model Segment of a project-level data model project level .

One customer may place many orders. but each order is placed by a single customer One-to-many relationship p .

One order has many order li d lines. each order line is associated with a single order One-to-many relationship .

each order line refers to a single product One-to-many O t relationship .One product can be in many order lines.

Therefore. Therefore one order involves many products and one product is involved in many orders Many-to-many relationship .

Components of the Database Environment C f .

Components of th C t f the Database Environment CASE Tools–computer-aided software engineering computerRepository–centralized storehouse of metadata Database Management System (DBMS) –software for managing the database Database–storehouse of the data Application Programs–software using the data User Interface–text and graphical displays to users Data/Database Administrators–personnel responsible D t /D t b Ad i i t t l ibl for maintaining the database System Developers–personnel responsible for designing databases and software d i i d t b d ft End Users–people who use the applications and databases .
