Determine Your Database Requirements

You are currently viewing Determine Your Database Requirements

It is important to determine the requirements for your database before you hire someone to build it. Because database design is one where you have to plan carefully to get all the aspects right and failing to plan could lead to a loss of data integrity and poor system performance. 

It is the client’s responsibility to determine the purpose, and it is the developer’s responsibility to design and build the system that meets the purpose.

In the article Beginners, Database Design Primer by Author Josh Ghent’s which I enjoyed reading It says a “Bad database design leads to slow queries.”  Slow queries are when the SQL statements take more than longer to execute.

It is crucial for any project, from a basic website to a fully functional system, to understand why you’re building it. Unfortunately, this step is often overlooked. How can you come up with the right database solution without knowing why you need one?
