Masters in Database Proposal

Masters in Database Proposal
Scott Canaan, Sr. Database Administrator, RIT


The B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences at RIT is putting together a Master’s degree program in database.  There are three areas of study: Database Administration, Data Analytics, and Data Architecture.  We are getting close to the point where we have to submit the program to the University then the New York State Department of Education for approval.  One of the requirements is to make sure that the degree program is useful in the marketplace.  For this, we need feedback from those people that will be interested in getting the degree or will be interested in employing those that get the degree.

Scott Canaan Graduated from RIT in 1988 and has been working with relational databases since 1989.  He has been working with the Oracle database since 1992 (version 6) and has worked at RIT as a Senior Database Administrator since 1998, primarily with Oracle and some SQLServer.

Data Modeling Essentials

Data Modeling Essentials
Ray Makela, IBM


Most of the ERP, CRM, and custom applications that drive your business operations rely on complex relational database technology. It is not uncommon for application databases to contain dozens, hundreds or even thousands of database tables and just as many data relationships. Database administrators are often challenged to navigate through the data model to ensure the referential integrity of the data each time a new application enhancement or upgrade is being developed. The complexity of relational databases is not limited to large-scale systems. Even an application database of less than a dozen tables can support complex relationships and be accessed from other applications, presenting a challenge for DBA’s to navigate and manage effectively.  

In this session, we will discuss ways of gathering the details needed to make smart decisions about the databases you manage.  Understanding the different relationships that affect the data and not just those found easily in database catalogs and models, but those created dynamically through application logic.
