CSCI 3287: Database System Concepts



Spring 2016 - CSCI 3287 - Class #12623



Database Management Systems (DBMSs are at the heart of modern commercial application development. Their use extends beyond this to many other environments and domains where large amounts of data must be stored for efficient update, retrieval, and analysis. In this course, we learn how to use DBMSs. Although the scope of this course is limited to existing DBMSs, you will also learn important concepts that will help you start working with next generation of DBMSs (such as NoSQL data stores) for Big Data management.
