28 Four Generic Approaches Win Lose Win/WinWin/Lose or Cooperative Equilibrium Lose/Lose Win/Lose or Cooperative Equilibrium

29 Lose/Lose l Total Industry Profits are Very Low, Zero, or Negative l Industry Revenues are Declining, or, at best, steady l Product Technology is at or past its peak Structure Defines the Industry War

30 Win/Win l Total Industry Revenues and Profits are Growing Rapidly l Numerous Players of All Sizes l Products and Services are not Standardized

31 Win/Lose l Total Industry Revenues and/or Profits are Constant or are Growing very Slowly l Significant Economies of Scale in Production, Distribution, and/or Promotion l Number of Firms Participating in the Industry is Limited and Stable l Individual Participants have, or can obtain, Information Regarding the Relative Positions of the Players

32 Structure Defines the Terms of Competition l Wasting Resources – generic advertising rather than focusing on specific market segments l Precipitating Unwanted Warfare – Causing a full-scale price war when only brand repositioning was necessary l Failing to Anticipate and Adapt to Changes – Following historical patterns – Underspending on Advertising

33 Structure Defines Maneuver l Standard or Dominant Product Emerges l Distribution Channels Limit Firms Ability to Determine which Channels to Select l Target and Market Niches Become More Difficult to Defend l Substitutes Limit Price Increases which Requires Increase in Advertising Expenditure

34 Two Levels of Planning l Systems Planning –Gives Managers, Users, and Information Systems Personnel Projects –Establishes what should be done –Sets a budget for the total cost of these projects l Systems Project Planning –Setting a plan for the development of each specific systems project

35 Systems Professional Skills l Systems Planning –Form project team after proposed systems project is cleared for development l Systems Analysis –Business Systems Analysts knowledgeable in business l General Systems Design –Business Systems Analysts l Systems Evaluation and Selection –Business Systems Analysts l Detailed Systems Design –Wide Range of Systems and Technical Designers l Systems Implementation –Systems analysts, programmers, and special technicians

36 Effective Leadership Style l Autocratic Style –Crisis-Style Management –Used to Correct Major Problem, such as Schedule Slippage l Democratic Style –Team-oriented Leadership –Gives each team member the freedom to achieve goals which he/she helped set l Laissez-Faire Style –Highly-motivated, Highly-Skilled Team Members –People who work best alone

37 Project Management Skills l Planning –States what should be done –Estimates how long it will take –Estimates what it will cost l Leading –Adapts to dynamics of enterprise and deals with setbacks –Guides and induces people to perform at maximum abilities l Controlling –Monitors Progress Reports and Documented Deliverables –Compares Plans with Actuals l Organizing –Staffs a Systems Project Team –Brings together users, managers, and team members

38 CASE/Frameworks l Computer-Aided Systems and Software Engineering l Increase Productivity of Systems Professionals l Improve the Quality of Systems Produced l Improve Software Maintenance Issue

39 CASE/Frameworks l Includes: –workstations –central repository –numerous modeling tools –project management –Systems Development Life Cycle Support –Prototyping Applications –Software Design Features

40 Central Repository for Models l Models Derived from Modeling Tools l Project Management Elements l Documented Deliverables l Screen Prototypes and Report Designs l Software Code from Automatic Code Generator l Module and Object Libraries of Reusable Code l Reverse Engineering, Reengineering, and Restructuring Features

41 Software Maintenance l Reverse Engineering –Extract original design from spaghetti-like, undocumented code to make maintenance change request –Abstract meaningful design specifications that can be used by maintenance programmers to perform maintenance tasks l Reengineering –Examination and changing of a system to reconstitute it in form and functionality –Reimplementation l Restructuring –Restructures code into standard control constructs l sequence, selection, repetition

42 Data Design l Define all the entities to be dealt with and the relationships between them l Transform the conceptual design into logical design wherein all the views are combined and all the resulting data elements are defined and the data structure is syntactically and semantically determined l Normalize this logical design for mathematically minimized redundancy and maximized integrity l Transform this logical design to a physical design where the underlying RDBMS, hardware, and use patterns are taken into account l Develop the SQL DDL code specific to each RDBMS vendors product is generated

43 Business Rules For Data l Basic selection of what data elements are of interest, what are their characteristics (data type and acceptable range - also called syntactic structure) l How they are related to, or dependent on, each other in a business sense (key, foreign key and referential constraint rule - also called the semantic structure) l Data Integrity Rules

44 Advantages of Data Analysis l slice and dice dynamic query support l standard high-level access language (SQL) l minimum data redundancy l self-protecting data integrity –no insert, delete and update anomalies

45 Relational Model l The Relational Model for data design is the foundation of the relational database and the industry that produces the engines that run them. l It puts data design (and data modeling) on a formal, mathematical footing.

46 Relationship Types a). One-to-one (1:1): means that an occurrence if one OT uniquely determines an occurrence of other OT - and vice-versa b). One-to-many (1:n): means that an occurrence of one OT determines an occurrence of the other OT - but not vice- versa c). Many-to-many (n:m):means that an occurrence of one OT can be related to many occurrences of other OT - and vice-versa

47 Data Rationalization l Identification of data synonyms and homonyms across multiple and disparate data sources and the creation of a map that points back to their original sources.

48 Data Access Gateway l sits between end users (usually in PC networks) and a legacy database l accepts data read requests (expressed as SQL statements) l converts the requests to legacy access method instructions l provides the resulting data to the users l data flow is one-way read-only.

49 Structured Data Analysis l the functions or activities which are to be handled by the system l the external entities which interact with the system l the logical data stores, and l the data flows among all the the above l Data flow diagrams (DFD) are used to diagrammatically describe the elements.

50 Entity Relationship Diagrams (ERDs) l A method of documenting and visualizing a conceptual data model.

51 Normalization l The process based on the business rules for data –a set of data elements (attributes) are arranged in a mathematically minimum set of tables (relations), within which all the attributes are dependent on a primary key attribute (the key).

52 Normalization Model l The SA/Normalization method is based on the use of decomposition rules, which enable one to decompose tables/relations. –Database design starts with flat tables/relations, each of which is created out of a data stores in the DFDs and then decomposed into the normal form relations. No conceptual schema of the enterprise is created to express the semantics of its information structure. l The SA/IA method is based on the use of grouping rules which map simple relationships in the binary-relationship data model onto normal form relationships. –The relational model and the normalization method have been criticized for being too detailed to use at the initial design stage, and for lacking a semantic structure for making unambiguous choices in modeling the enterprise. –The IA method incorporates a semantic model of the enterprise which captures its essential semantic features from which the normal form relations are derived.

53 Conversion into Normalized Record Types l For every data flow which either enters or emanates from a data store (in the leaf level DFDs), the integral data elements are identified l For every data store, a list of the data elements which are entering and emanating are drawn up l The dependencies among all the data elements are analyzed, and the normalization rules are applied in steps so that at every step a given relation is split into more simple relations –Every relation has a key which consists of one or more data elements –Every non-key data element functionally depends on that entire key and not on part of it –No non-key data element depends on any other non-key data element in the relation (there are no transitive dependencies)

55 De-Normalization l The process of selectively –combining two or more normalized tables into one, or –decomposing one normalized table into two or more

56 Part Description for Model for General Motors Part #123 that is supplied by GM was assembled on bus 456 on May 28, 1996 is decomposed into the following elementary sentences: a). A part... is supplied by a manufacturer... b). A part... was assembled on a bus... c). The assembly [part*bus] was performed on a date...

58 Relationship Types a). One-to-one (1:1): means that an occurrence if one OT uniquely determines an occurrence of other OT - and vice-versa b). One-to-many (1:n): means that an occurrence of one OT determines an occurrence of the other OT - but not vice- versa c). Many-to-many (n:m):means that an occurrence of one OT can be related to many occurrences of other OT - and vice-versa

60 Data Warehouse l An intermediate, read-only store (usually based in a purchased RDBMS product) and the programs that manage it. l Contains recent and summarized data extracted from across some or all of the legacy data systems l Presents a subject-based view

61 Functional Dependency l Mathematical term for the key relationship (using rational terminology) between data elements. A data element (attribute) that is functionally dependent on another data element (the key) will always exist in a relation (table) such that a unique value for the key will always determine or locate or define a unique value of the dependent.

62 Metadata l Data about data that is generally extracted from an existing system or created for a new system and stored in a design repository for developers to use in maintaining or extending the system during its lifecycle l Metadata refers to the table, attribute, and key definitions contained in the catalog of a relational database. It can also mean the business rules for data designed for a new design, or the business rules for data thought to be enforced in a legacy system (semantic data structure, sometimes called meta-data, or meta2 data). l The actual syntactic and semantic data structure (not just what the documentation might say), including a complete synonym and homonym map, plus the business rules for data that are actually being enforced in the legacy system.
