Learning Team: Wk 2 Specialist Database Presentation

Your team is tasked with creating an inventory price-tracking database for a company of your choosing.

Complete the following steps in Microsoft® SQL Server® 2016:

  1. Create a table. This table will tell you what price the inventory item started at, what it currently is, and what it ends at. The primary key must be a combination of the inventory number and the current price date. Elements to include in your table are as follows:
  2. a. Inventory Number Integer

    b. Inventory Description Text

    c. Date Price Previous Date

    d. Date Price Current Date

    e. Date Price End Date

    f. Inventory Price Decimal

  3. Create an insert statement that will be used to initially add an inventory item. Remember that the previous date will be null, the start date will be today's date, and the end date will be null.
  4. Create a stored procedure that will be used to update the price of an item. The procedure will take the inventory number and a new price.
  5. Update the current record by updating the Date Price End Date to be the current date. Then, create a new inventory record where the Date Price Previous Date is today's date, Date Price Current Date is tomorrow's date (price is effective tomorrow), and Date Price End Date is null. Remember to bring over the inventory description and inventory number, as well.
  6. Create a query that will display a list of all the current inventory prices.
  7. Write and run a test script for Steps Two through Four.
  8. Save a screenshot of the results.

Compress your DDL and DML scripts, query, test script, and results into a ZIP file.

Submit the ZIP file.

Wk 2 Discussion - OLTP and OLAP

Organizations use database technology to store data that they collect, analyze, measure, and monitor as they conduct business. Data that is captured during transactional processes, as organizations sell products and services to their customers, is best structured in an OLTP database. Data that is used to analyze trends, key metrics, summary data, and for data mining is best stored in an OLAP database. Database designers need to understand the differences between OLTP and OLAP data and how to best design and build databases to support OLTP or OLAP requirements.
From the perspective of a Database Designer, identify the differences between Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) and Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) databases. Explain when a company would choose one database over the other and why.

Wk 3 Discussion - Spatial Database Indexing

Includes 5 Long Answers to Discussion Question 

Part of a Database Administrator's job is to ensure appropriate information retrieval performance of their databases. End users do not and in many cases can't wait for databases that perform slowly. This is true for many spatial databases. Consider Google Maps and the spatial data that this application stores and provides to its users. If it performs slowly, it would not provide useful driving directions. It has to perform well to be used. Slow database performance would make this application ineffective and could be dangerous or life threatening for the people who rely on it for driving directions.
From the perspective of a Database Administrator who is concerned about database performance, explain why indexing is so important when working with a spatial database.
