Designing Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Databases

This two-day instructor-led course provides students with the knowledge and skills to design databases for Microsoft SQL ServerT 2005 using business requirements to guide their decisions (beyond structured third normal form [3NF] modeling techniques). Students will also learn to incorporate security requirements throughout their design.

Who is the course for

This course is intended for current professional database developers who have three or more years of on-the-job experience developing SQL Server database solutions in an enterprise environment.

What we teach you

  • Approach database design from a systematic perspective, gather database requirements, and formulate a conceptual design.
  • Analyze and evaluate a logical database design.
  • Apply best practices for creating a physical database design.
  • Apply best practices when designing for database scalability.
  • Design a database access strategy.
  • Use best practices to model database dependencies.
  • Required skills

  • Have experience reading user requirements and business-need documents. For example, development project vision/mission statements or business analysis reports.
  • Have experience reading and drawing business process flow charts.
  • Have experience reading and drawing entity relationship (ER) diagrams.
  • Understand Transact-SQL syntax and programming logic.
  • Be able to design a database to 3NF and know the tradeoffs when backing out of the fully normalized design (denormalization) and designing for performance and business requirements in addition to being familiar with design models, such as Star and Snowflake schemas.
  • Have basic monitoring and troubleshooting skills.
  • Have basic knowledge of the operating system and platform. That is, how the operating system integrates with the database, what the platform or operating system can do, and how interaction between the operating system and the database works.
  • Have basic knowledge of application architecture. That is, how applications can be designed in three layers, what applications can do, how interaction between the application and the database works, and how the interaction between the database and the platform or operating system works.
  • Know how to use a data modeling tool.
  • Be familiar with SQL Server 2005 features, tools, and technologies.
  • Have a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 credential, or equivalent experience.
  • Teaching methods

    Expert instruction with practical examples, computer practice
