Components of Data Base Planning

  • Jay-Louise Weldon
Part of the Applications of Modern Technology in Business book series (AMTB)


One of the major administrative tasks assigned to the dba is the responsibility for data base planning. This responsibility entails setting goals and objectives for data base content and operation as well as selecting technical and organizational alternatives that most effectively utilize company resources to achieve these goals. Goals must be set in the context of organizational goals and management objectives. The selection of alternatives must reflect a knowledge of current and projected technological developments as well as an appreciation of the organizational implications of managing data as a resource.
