Modeling and Databases - Introduction to Databases for Business Informatics

2020/21 - #76404B

This is the Module 2 of the course Modeling and Databases (76404):
Students attending this course will study and put into practice languages, methodologies, and techniques for modeling data, business processes and decisions that are instrumental to the creation of information systems supporting contemporary organizations in their operations management. In addition, they will be able to translate a data model into a corresponding database, and learn how to make use of the basic functionalities (definition, update, and querying) of database management systems in the context of development and deployment of information systems. The course focuses specifically on relational databases, the SQL language, and software programs accessing them, but the taught methods and principles are of a more general nature, and can be applied also in those contexts where data models and database systems different from relational ones are adopted.

Office hours: Every Tuesday 10:00AM via Teams or other days/time if required (all by email appointment).
