At last, a concise and
understandable course to guide the IS professional through the
labyrinthine world of managing distributed databases. This
practical seminar show you how to apply proven techniques to
distributed architectures and do it today. You will learn how
distributed database system are maintained and controlled, with a
focus on incorporating legacy databases into an enterprise database
system. This course is indispensable for anyone faced with the
challenge of managing distributed databases.
Due to the volatile nature
of corporate computing in the 1990's many corporations are faced
with the issue of managing widely distributed database systems,
spanning geographical areas, hardware platforms and database
architectures. Other shops are embracing "downsizing" and
"rightsizing" and have created situations where many diverse
"islands" of information are spread across many computer
"Open systems" has become
one of the foremost buzzwords of the 1990's but very little has
been written about the issues involved with managing a diverse
network of databases and how to make disparate database systems
behave as a part of an integrated enterprise.
professional must insure that all of the information resources
within an organization are able to communicate with each other.
This "bridge building" function is very foreign to the traditional
manager who is accustomed to the centralized mainframe environment.
The recent popularity of client-server tools has also effected the
expectations of the end-user community. This type of Inter-database
integration presents a challenge to the administrator who must
develop a method for the diverse databases to act as if they were a
single, integrated system.
This session explains the
major issues and looks at tips and methods for creating and
managing distributed database applications. Techniques for managing
dispersed databases will also be covered with an emphasis on

Unlike other "overview"
seminars, this session will offer practical examples from existing
databases and show the student how to immediately manage and
control distributed systems.
exercises guide the students to a complete understanding of the
enterprise and federated system management, and the student will
leave the course with a practical, not theoretical, understanding
of distributed systems. Actual code examples will illustrate the
principles and the student will have enough information to
immediately apply the principles in their own shops.
