Database Systems: A Methodical Approach, 3rd Edition provides a concise but comprehensive guide to the disciplines of database design, construction, implementation, and management. Based on the authors’ professional experience in the software engineering and IT industries before making a career switch to academia, the text stresses database design skills to properly design and develop software applications. The discipline of database systems design and management is discussed within the context of the bigger picture of software engineering. Students are led to understand from the outset of the text that a database is a critical component of a software system, and that proper database design and management is integral to the success of a software system. Additionally, students are led to appreciate the huge value of a properly designed database to the success of a business enterprise.

The text was written for three target audiences. It is suited for undergraduate students of computer science and related disciplines who are pursuing a course in database systems; graduate students who are pursuing an introductory course to database; and practicing software engineers and information technology (IT) professionals who need a quick reference on database design.
