A Database Design and Development Case: Smile Land Academy
Harris, Ranida; Harris, Ken; Eplion, David
Information Systems Education Journal, v11 n5 p4-9 Oct 2013
This case describes the situation of Smile Land Academy (SLA), a real-world based childcare center. SLA has grown from a very small company to a fairly large-sized organization (30 employees with 150 children). Unfortunately, its system for record-keeping, summarization of data, and reporting has not kept pace. The hard copies and spreadsheet software programs that have been used to manage the data are no longer effective or efficient. This case presents the situation SLA is in as well as the desired system features and outputs that the organization would like in a new system.
