Week 6 Discussion 1

“Planning the DBLC” Please respond to the following:

  • The  development of a database requires thorough methodology that ensures  quality within the solution. Imagine you have been contracted to develop  a finance database that will help an organization track monthly  expenditures by departments. Using the DBLC, discuss the various  activities that you would have to achieve each phase. Assess possible  challenges that may exist within each phase. Suggest actions that one  can perform in order to overcome these possible challenges.
    • In  order to mitigate risks associated with a database, it is essential to  consider common sources of database failures. Describe at least two  possible database failures that may occur once a database is placed into  operation. Suggest actions that may be performed in order to avoid or  mitigate these possible failures.
