Understanding RDBMS Design Principles

  • Bhushan Lakhe


I always enjoy interviewing the junior members of our database architecture community. I asked someone if he had ever used or heard of “SSADM” (structured systems analysis and design method). The answer was negative, and honestly, it didn’t surprise me. I thought the term was probably before his time, or maybe it never got popular in the US (I had used it in earlier part of my career in the UK). But even some of my senior colleagues and friends had not heard of SSADM, or even about Accenture’s METHOD/1—which is very American.
