Document Databases Part 6 – Create New Target Databases

Creating a new database from a physical data model is an important step in the database development process. This is because it allows developers to create a database that reflects the structure and relationships of the data being stored. There are several reasons this is important:

  • Accuracy: Creating a physical data model ensures the database represents the data being stored. This includes defining tables, columns, constraints, and relationships between tables. By starting with a physical data model, developers can ensure the database can store and retrieve data in a way that is consistent and accurate.
  • Efficiency: Creating a physical data model can help developers identify potential performance issues before one builds the database. By considering the size of the data, the number of users, and other factors, developers can optimize the database structure to ensure that it is efficient and scalable.
  • Collaboration: A physical data model can serve as a blueprint for the development team. This ensures that everyone agrees and understands the structure of the database. It also makes it easier for developers to collaborate on the database development process.
  • Documentation: A physical data model serves as documentation for the database. This can be useful for future developers who need to understand the structure of the database. It can also be useful for compliance, as it provides a record of how one designed and built the database.
