New To This Edition


NEW! Illustrate the concepts with Camtasia-produced videos on www.pearsonhighered.com/hoffer. Addressing key concepts and skills from different sections of the text, these videos help students learn potentially difficult material in a format that speaks to visual learners. Videos have been developed to support topics such as:


  * Introduction to database (Ch. 1)


  * Conceptual data modeling (Ch. 2 and 3)


  * Normalization (Ch. 4)


  * SQL (Ch. 6 and 7)

NEW! Allow for more SQL integration in the course with expanded coverage. In addition to expanded SQL coverage, this text also includes new figures to graphically depict the set processing related logic of SQL queries, giving students new tools for assistance in writing queries.

Updated! See what's currently going on: Linking object-oriented systems development environments with mainstream technologies. This major change-linking object-oriented information systems development environments like Java Technology and Microsoft® .NET with the mainstream technology for maintaining organizational data-has been updated to reflect the rapidly changing environment of database processing.

NEW! Reflect the latest changes in the field with Updated Chapter 10. This chapter has been reorganized to better reflect the nature of enterprise data management (EDM) activities in organizations. Additionally, this chapter now motivates the need for an active program to manage data quality in organizations and outlines the steps that are considered to be best practices for data quality management.

NEW and Updated! Provide hands-on practice with database development:


  * Field Exercises. This textbook provides a set of "hands-on" mini-cases that can be assigned to either individual students or small teams. Field exercises range from directed field trips to Internet searches.


  * Case Study. The Mountain View Community Hospital (MVCH) case has been updated for the tenth edition. In each chapter, the case begins with a description of a realistic, modern hospital situation that relates to the chapter material. The case then presents a series of case questions and exercises, focusing on specific aspects of the case. The final section includes project assignments, which tie together some issues and activities across chapters.
