is beginning generated daily. This overload of data is
putting those that know how to effective manage and extract
information from such mountains of data into a distinct advantage.
In many cases, data is mission critical to an enterprise's
Thus database systems are a critical component of today's software systems.
This second course in database systems concentrates on the study of the
internals of such database management systems. That is, we will look
"under the hood" to learn about the key techniques and technologies
within database systems. The knowledge gained should be useful not

handle data of huge volumes, but also for
effectively using a commercial DBMS system.
