CIS 275 Data Modeling & SQL Introduction, 4 credits - When you do a search on the Internet, you are requesting for the search engines (Google, Yahoo, MSN, Alta Vista, etc.) to perform a Query.  To understand the complexity of such a search involves advance statistical knowledge.  However, it begins with SQL.  What is SQL?  Structured Query Language is used to create relational databases and manipulate the data in them.  Queries, inserts, and updates can not be performed unless tables are defined.  Defining tables is data modeling.  Data Modeling is the most important activity in the Relational Data Base Management System.  When data modeling, you are telling the RDBMS:

  • What elements of the data you will store
  • How large each element can be
  • What kind of information each element can contain
  • What elements may be left blank
  • Which elements are constrained to a fixed range
  • Whether and how various tables are to be linked
