Hi Lynn,

A few years ago I was required to model a database structure which could provide fast performance report queries for managers and decision makers in the company where I've worked for.

At that time, I decided to create a non transactional database containing a lot of bi-dimensional tables and stored procedures with business rules for performing queries.

Nowadays, due to multi-dimensional modeling techniques and products/DBMS available, this "hard" work has became easier for sure.

So, does HF SQL book cover this knowledge field ? Specially on modeling techniques and queries arena where most of developers are involved ?

Best Regards,
Edisandro Bessa.

That's definitely an advanced topic outside of the scope of this book. Keep in mind that we're going from "What is SELECT" to 3NF and beyond, beginning through intermediate topics. And I had to leave something I could write a super advanced HF book about.
