WELCOME TO SEMESTER JUN-NOV 2010

"Kadang-kadang ALLAH sembunyikan matahari, DIA datangkan hujan petir. Kita bersedih dan tertanya-tanya kemana hilangnya matahari , rupa-rupanya, ALLAH nak hadiahkan kita pelangi yang indah. ALLAH berikan kita kesusahan sebab DIA nak berikan kesenangan sekiranya kita tabah dan terus berusaha." Oleh itu, bersabarlah dengan dugaan Hidup ini, Kalau kita rasa susah,ada orang lebih susah daripada kita. Bersyukurlah dengan kurniaannya. Bersyukurlah kerana kita dapat belajar. Ingatlah, ada orang yang tiada peluang untuk belajar seperti kita.

Data vs. Information

Why Learn It?

All kinds of information (school records, credit history, shopping patterns, grocery purchases) are stored in databases. We interact with databases every day, consciously or unconsciously. It is important to understand what is stored in a database and what can be retrieved from it.

If you work in the information technology industry, it is essential to understand how data is modeled and stored in a database. If you work in any other industry, you will most likely have to work with data stored somewhere on a computer and probably be required to use data in your job to create reports and/or make decisions.

Data vs. Information
The words "data" and "information" are often used as if they are synonyms. Nevertheless, they have different meanings.

Data: Raw material, from which you can draw conclusions. Facts from which you can deduce new facts.

Information: Knowledge, intelligence, a particular piece of data with a special meaning or function. Information is often the result of combining, comparing, and performing calculations on data.

Whenever a student, teacher, administrator (or any person using a computer) interacts with a website, pieces of data are collected. The graphical user interface (GUI) may be unique to that school or company, but what happens “behind the scenes”?

Think about test scores, for example. In one class, if every student receives a numbered score, the scores can be calculated to determine a class average. The class averages can be calculated to determine the school average. The Oracle database software will transform recorded/stored data and statistics into useful pieces of information.

Data: Each student’s test score is one piece of data
Information: The class’ average score, or the school’s average score.

What is a database ?
A centralized and structured set of data stored on a computer system. The database also provides facilities for retrieving, adding, modifying and deleting the data when required. The database also provides facilities for transforming retrieved data into useful information. A database is usually managed by a Database Administrator (DBA).

Documents, Pictures, Video, Sound
Within most modern databases, you can store and retrieve a wide variety of data and documents. Inside the database, data is stored in a “raw” form. When this raw data is queried or
retrieved, it is transformed into more useful output or information.

Question: What does a database have to do with my everyday life?
Answer: More than you may realize...
A lot of websites that you visit are driven by a database.

If you had one of the jobs listed below, how might you use a database?
(1) mechanic in an auto-repair shop
(2) taxi driver
(3) landscape gardener
