SITizens Learning Credits


Database plays an essential role in almost all areas where computers are used in modern society. When people deposit or withdraw funds, make airline reservations, and enroll to university courses, they will interact with databases to retrieve, record, or update their data. Data fuels information systems to work properly and generate relevant output for data analytics. Designing and managing database is, therefore, of critical in data analytics. Improper database design will likely impact on the inaccurate and irrelevant analysis. Further, personal data stored in the database required careful attention and comply with relevant jurisdictional regulations.

This 2-day workshop will equip participants with the system thinking to understand how the real-world activities are represented in database. Participants will then be guided to design data model and develop physical database using popular database management systems. Participants are also facilitated to be aware of and comply with data protection related requirements when working with personal data. Multiple case studies are used to help participants fully comprehend on the database management and data protection issues.
