After reading this week’s article, “Modeling for the Future,”
expand on the subject of Database Modeling. There are several tools
listed and reviewed in the article. Research these tools further (or
identify other commercially available modeling tools), compare three
tools, and apply your findings as if you were selecting one of the tools
for use at your place of employment. Be sure to include comparative
detail information on implementation scenarios, target industries,
company types most suited for the tool, costs, software type, the type
of operating system required, and the target user population.
Select one of the tools previously compared, and discuss the benefits
and the shortcomings. Discuss how this tool will help meet the data
modeling requirements for your employer’s database development needs.
Be sure to integrate vocabulary from the text to demonstrate your
understanding of concepts. In addition to the article, include a website
reference for each of the three tools you research. The website
references must come from the software vendor or other credible source.
