Overview of the unit

About this unit

Digital data is central to the modern economy. Transactions, managerial decisions and strategy development rely on data. Databases are the tool used to create, store, organise and disseminate data. This unit delivers the fundamental principles needed to effectively design and use databases. It seeks to unpack the notion of data, and introduce contemporary tools and techniques for storing, retrieving, exploiting and visualising data. Emphasis is given to understanding data modelling and design approaches, and the emerging opportunities afforded by big data, social media, data analytics and unstructured data. Both commercial and open-source database management tools are focused upon.
