Bachelor Global Business Informatics  
Læringsmål:NOTE: This desrcription is preliminary and subject to changes before the course start

After the course, students should be able to:

  • Account for the capabilities of a database system and its place in an IT infrastructure.
  • Recognize common methods for describing and visualizing data scemas.
  • Interpret graphical and textual representations.
  • Evaluate and choose security measures for protecting the integrity and consistency of databases.
  • Handle elementary use of a database system.
Fagligt indhold:IT, Information Technology, is about handling data and turning it into information. IT systems take data as input, process and store it, and provide output. The data is stored in databases, ranging from simple unstructured files for single users to sophisticated multi-tier architectures for large organizations, with advanced support for recovery, security, concurrency, etc. This course will focus the general principles of database design, and mainstream database technologies and methods (for example relational databases and the entity-relationship model), but it also includes a broader perspective on data storage. We study elementary data structures used for efficient storage and retrieval of data, emerging techniques for data storage using Internet services, and methods for keeping data secure from malevolent intrusion. The primary goal is to provide an orientation around the diverse and heterogeneous techniques used for various databases in our communication-intensive globalized world.
