This edition WILL BE DISCONTINUED December 1 2013. There is a Second Edition of this book out that contains a new chapter on implementation. This book is dedicated to structuring and simplifying the database design process, outlining a simple but reliable six-step process for accurately modelling user data, leading to a sturdy and reliable relational database. It starts with a statement of the problem by the client and goes through the six steps necessary to create a reliable and accurate data model of the client's business requirements. Three case studies are used throughout the book to guide the user through the six steps, illustrating the six-step relational database design technique. At each stage the technique is explained, in detail, using the case studies as examples of how to implement the process for that stage of the technique. This book should be used as a handbook for students and professionals in the software-development field. Students can use it as a technique for quickly developing relational databases for their applications, and professionals can use it as a technique for developing sturdy, reliable, and accurate relational database models for their software applications.

In the current fast-paced and constantly changing business environment, it is more important than ever for organizations to be agile, monitor business performance, and meet with increasingly stringent compliance requirements. Written by pioneering consultants and bestselling authors with track records of international success, The Decision Model: A Business Logic Framework Linking Business and Technology provides a platform for rethinking how to view, design, execute, and govern business logic. The book explains how to implement the Decision Model, a stable, rigorous model of core business logic that informs current and emerging technology. The authors supply a strong theoretical foundation, while succinctly defining the path needed to incorporate agile and iterative techniques for developing a model that will be the cornerstone for continual growth. Because the book introduces a new model with tentacles in many disciplines, it is divided into three sections: Section 1: A Complete overview of the Decision Model and its place in the business and technology world Section 2: A Detailed treatment of the foundation of the Decision Model and a formal definition of the Model Section 3: Specialized topics of interest on the Decision Model, including both business and technical issues The Decision Model provides a framework for organizing business rules into well-formed decision-based structures that are predictable, stable, maintainable, and normalized. More than this, the Decision Model directly correlates business logic to the business drivers behind it, allowing it to be used as a lever for meeting changing business objectives and marketplace demands. This book not only defines the Decision Model and but also demonstrates how it can be used to organize decision structures for maximum stability, agility, and technology independence and provide input into automation design.
