Evolutionary Database Design


Evolutionary Database Design

Logo for Evolutionary Database Design
Over the last few years we've developed a number of techniques that allow a database design to evolve as an application develops. This is a very important capability for agile methodologies. The techniques rely on applying continuous integration and automated refactoring to database development, together with a close collaboration between DBAs and application developers. The techniques work in both pre-production and released systems.

I spent about 20 minutes reading this article. It offers very good information
on developing a database that can be easily changed for future use. I think it
is somewhat related to the course material we will study in Systems Analysis.
