This book is a layman's guide to the components of information management. It does begin with a survey defining a bit of history to explain exactly what a database is, and what technologies are behind it. Quickly, though, Mr. Gordon moves into the area of data modeling, which is a way of representing the structure of an enterprise's data so that it can be discussed with business people. This is ultimately the language that should be used to communicate between the business users of information and the technologists who will provide it.
In a world where the data modeling field tends to be dominated by overly complex notations that are fundamentally inaccessible to the public, Mr Gordon makes effective use of the notation created by Harry Ellis and Richard Barker to present clearly the things of significance to an organization. This notation is without the ornamentation in many notations that is frequently more confusing than illuminating. Again, in Mr. Gordon's view, the objective of modeling is to engage the business in the management of the company's information-which requires them to understand its basic components. This requires attention to the aesthetics and clarity of presentation.
In other words, the important thing about this book is that Mr. Gordon uses data models (and in particular corporate data models) to present the principles of data management.Read more ›
