Abstract

In this chapter, the introduction of “real-life” scenarios to undergraduate business students to enhance their understanding of end-user development of databases is investigated. The problems experienced with end-user development due to incomplete information, incorrect design procedures, and inadequate software knowledge are identified. It is the hope of the author that by identifying the design issue relevant to good database production and using “real-life” case studies as insight into how businesses use and store data, the students will be more aware of good practice for their future employment.
