Advanced Databases and Enterprise Systems - ITEC626

This unit is an advanced unit on databases, emphasising database foundations and assistance for large enterprise information systems. It focuses on the support, technologies and tools that database management systems (DBMSs) provide to facilitate enterprise and business-to-business application development and integration. This unit takes direct advantage of students' prior knowledge of database programming and application development, and extends that knowledge through the study of advanced features of DBMSs in support of development and integration of enterprise applications. Particular emphasis is placed on the DBMS software for managing business transactions and database states, including transaction processing on 'stateless' internet. In doing so, the unit explains the dependencies and separation of concerns between database servers and application servers. The unit explains the demands that various enterprise application domains place on databases and how DBMSs respond to these demands. Related technologies include: object-oriented databases, multimedia databases, online analytical processing, data warehouses, workflow management systems, data mining, web services and electronic commerce.
