Database Schema Design: get a real understanding
Database schema design, may have been misunderstood not only by the non-ITs people but sometimes
ITs people don’t have good understanding of it.
First let’s look at Schema. What is Schema? It is pronounced
“skee-ma”. In a relational database (how data is related or how it will be extracted from the database.) , schema
means, it explains the tables, the fields in each table, and what are the relationships between those fields and
tables. In other words, you refer columns data types as database schema.
So, database schema design would be mean designing the different parts of the database where you
can visually see exactly what is included in a designed database.
There is a process that is involved to design database that has number of steps that would be used
by any database designer that are, but not limited to:
- What is the purpose of the database what we are designing
- What type of information we will be using
- Organizing that information
- Turning the information into tables with headings, like, Products, Customers etc
- What type of Primary keys we will be using
Now, in order to doing the database schema design, we need sophisticated software what would be
called database schema designer.
Database Schema Designer (DBSD) is a visual, database model tool for SQL Server developers. Using
an intuitive GUI with lots of keyboard shortcuts, any programmer can quickly design, modify and publish a complete
database schema with tables, foreign keys, views, stored procedures, triggers and much more. You have to see it to
