Product Description This comprehensive textbook teaches the fundamentals of database design, modeling, systems, data storage, and the evolving world of data warehousing, governance and more. Written by experienced educators and experts in big data, analytics, data quality, and data integration, it provides an up to date approach to database management. This full color, illustrated text has a balanced theory practice focus, covering essential topics, from established database technologies to recent trends, like Big Data, NoSQL, and more. Fundamental concepts are supported by real world examples, query and code walkthroughs, and figures, making it perfect for introductory courses for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in information systems or computer science. These examples are further supported by an online playground with multiple learning environments, including MySQL, MongoDB, Neo4j Cypher, and tree structure visualization. This combined learning approach connects key concepts throughout the text to the important, practical tools to get started in database management. Review 'Although there have been a series of classical textbooks on database systems, the new dramatic advances call for an updated text covering the latest significant topics, such as big data analytics, No-SQL and much more. Fortunately, this is exactly what this book has to offer. It is highly desirable for training the next generation of data management professionals.' Jian Pei, Simon Fraser University, Canada 'I haven't seen an as up-to-date and comprehensive textbook for Database Management as this one in many years. Principles of Database Management combines a number of classical and recent topics concerning Data Modeling, Relational Databases, Object-Oriented Databases, XML, Distributed Data Management, NoSQL and Big Data in an unprecedented manner. The authors did a great job in stitching these topics into one coherent and compelling story that will serve as an ideal basis for teaching both introductory and advanced courses.' Martin Theobald, University of Luxembourg 'This is a very timely book with outstanding coverage of database topics and excellent treatment of database details. It not only gives very solid discussions of traditional topics like data modeling and relational databases but also contains refreshing contents on frontier topics such as XML databases, NoSQL databases, big data, and analytics. For those reasons, this will be a good book for database professionals who will keep using it for all stages of database studies and works.' J. Leon Zhao, City University of Hong Kong 'This accessible, authoritative book introduces the reader the most important fundamental concepts of data management, while providing a practical view of recent advances. Both are essential for data professionals today.' Foster Provost, New York University, Stern School of Business 'This guide to big and small data management addresses both fundamental principles and practical deployment. It reviews a range of databases and their relevance for analytics. The book is useful to practitioners because it contains many case studies, links to open-source software, and a very useful abstraction of analytics that will help them better choose solutions. It is important to academics because it promotes database principles which are key to successful and sustainable data science.' Sihem Amer-Yahia, Laboratoire d'Informatique de Grenoble and Editor-in-Chief the International Journal on Very Large DataBases 'This book covers everything you will need to teach in a database implementation and design class. With some chapters covering big data, analytic models/methods, and No-SQL, it can keep our students up-to-date with these new technologies in data management related topics.' Han-fen Hu, University of Nevada, Las Vegas 'As we are entering a new technological era of intelligent machines powered by data-driven algorithms, understanding fundamental concepts o
