Database Design

Enterprise Database design represents a coherent set of corporate policy across a subject area. As corporate policy is executed, data is produced that enables business analysts to research the past, control the present and plan for the future. Whitemarsh provides database design materials including data architecture descriptions, strategies for iterative database design, requirements evolution through prototyping, and techniques for evaluating packaged data models.

The formal process of database design is contained in the Whitemarsh methodology, and the metadata that results from database designs is managed on an enterprise-wide basis in the Whitemarsh metabase.

Iterations of Database DesignForm: PaperSample?
This material presents step-wise refinement techniques for creating a quality database design.
