Information and Computer Technology: Databases

Database Systems

Information derived from data is important to the management, productivity and differentiation of an organization. Data must be efficiently collected, organized, retrieved and managed to make it meaningful to the organization. This is where database management systems apply.  It is the role of the IT professional to develop, deploy, manage and integrate data and information systems to support the organization. This knowledge area includes the collection, organization, modeling, transformation, presentation, safety and security of the data and information.  (adapted from the ACM Curriculum Guidelines, 2008)
