a€œ A Developera€™s Guide to Data Modeling for SQL Server explains the concepts and practice of data modeling with a clarity that makes the technology accessible to anyone building databases and data-driven applications. a€œEric Johnson and Joshua Jones combine a deep understanding of the science of data modeling with the art that comes with years of experience. If youa€™re new to data modeling, or find the need to brush up on its concepts, this book is for you.a€ a€”Peter Varhol, Executive Editor, Redmond Magazine Model SQL Server Databases That Work Better, Do More, and Evolve More Smoothly Effective data modeling is essential to ensuring that your databases will perform well, scale well, and evolve to meet changing requirements. However, if youa€™re modeling databases to run on Microsoft SQL Server 2008 or 2005, theoretical or platform-agnostic data modeling knowledge isna€™t enough: models that dona€™t reflect SQL Servera€™s unique real-world strengths and weaknesses often lead to disastrous performance. A Developera€™s Guide to Data Modeling for SQL Server is a practical, SQL Server-specific guide to data modeling for every developer, architect, and administrator. This book offers you invaluable start-to-finish guidance for designing new databases, redesigning existing SQL Server data models, and migrating databases from other platforms. Youa€™ll begin with a concise, practical overview of the core data modeling techniques. Next, youa€™ll walk through requirements gathering and discover how to convert requirements into effective SQL Server logical models. Finally, youa€™ll systematically transform those logical models into physical models that make the most of SQL Servera€™s extended functionality. All of this booka€™s many examples are available for download from a companion Web site. This book enables you to Understand your data modela€™s physical elements, from storage to referential integrity Provide programmability via stored procedures, user-defined functions, triggers, and .NET CLR integration Normalize data models, one step at a time Gather and interpret requirements more effectively Learn an effective methodology for creating logical models Overcome modeling problems related to entities, attribute, data types, storage overhead, performance, and relationships Create physical modelsa€”from establishing naming guidelines through implementing business rules and constraints Use SQL Servera€™s unique indexing capabilities, and overcome their limitations Create abstraction layers that enhance security, extensibility, and flexibilityCovering SQL Server 2005 and 2008 Eric Johnson, Joshua Jones ... To explain the importance of bringing your customers into the design process, we like to compare data model design to automobile engine design. ... There is a great deal of focus on the technical details: how the engine must run, what parts are necessary, and how to optimize the ... the database will be largely dependent on the application (or applications) that will load, retrieve, and allow users to manipulate data.
