A description of the process and steps in choosing a DBMS

Field: Applied Sciences
 
Within the Discussion Board area, write 400–600  words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas,  and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by  your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce  your ideas.
As you embark on the database design process, you want to make sure  that all of the existing features and new requirements are built into  the new database. What are the tasks and mechanisms that you can use  that allow you to examine the existing system and start to transform it  into the new database, and how are these mechanisms used?
When creating the new database it is critical to complete each step  in the database design as completely as possible. To help with this and  to make sure you do not move too fast, too soon, describe the  differences between conceptual, logical and physical data modeling.  Finally, you are in a somewhat unique position in that you are migrating  from Access to an RDBMS of your choice. At what step is a DBMS chosen,  and what is the process?
Your post should include the following details:

  • A description of the tasks and mechanisms that allow you to  examine the existing system (a minimum of 3 different tools should be  described)
  • A description of conceptual, logical and physical data modeling
  • A description of the process and steps in choosing a DBMS

Responses to Other Students: Respond to at least 2  of your fellow classmates with a reply of at least 100 words about their  primary task response regarding items you found to be compelling and  enlightening. To help you with your discussion, please consider the  following questions:

  • What did you learn from your classmate’s posting?
  • What additional questions do you have after reading the posting?
  • What clarification do you need regarding the posting?
  • What differences or similarities do you see between your posting and other classmates’ postings?
