Hour 7. Designing Databases

Many developers believe that because Access is a rapid application development environment, there's absolutely no need for system analysis or design when creating an application. I couldn't disagree more. Access applications are deceptively easy to create. Without proper planning, they can become disasters. In this hour you'll learn about the following:

  • Analyzing the tasks you are automating

  • The data analysis and design phase of the development process

  • Prototyping and why it is important

  • The steps in the testing process

  • Successfully implementing an application

  • The maintenance phase of an application
