For courses in database management.

Hands-on exploration of database fundamentals
Database Concepts offers students practical help creating and managing small databases, from two of the world’s leading database authorities. The text focuses on database concepts, rather than features and functions of a particular product, making it flexible enough to work with the instructor’s preferred software. Data sets for three sample databases run throughout portions of the text so students can practice working with complete databases. Three running projects challenge learners to apply concepts and techniques to real business situations. In the 9th edition, Microsoft® Office 2019, and particularly Microsoft Access 2019, is now the basic software used and is shown running on Microsoft Windows 10.

He is the father of the semantic object data model. David’s consulting clients have included IBM®, Microsoft®, and Computer Sciences Corporations, as well as numerous smaller companies. Recently, David has focused on using information systems for teaching collaboration and teamwork.

His text Database Processing was first published in 1977 and is now in its 15th edition. He has authored and coauthored many other textbooks, including Database Concepts, 8th Edition (2017), Experiencing MIS, 8th Edition (2018), SharePoint for Students (2012), Office 365 in Business (2012), and Processes, Systems, and Information: An Introduction to MIS, 3rd Edition (2018).

Besides managing CBE’s computer, network, and other technology resources, he also teaches management information systems courses. He has taught the principles of management information systems and business database development courses, and he was responsible for developing CBE’s network infrastructure courses, including Computer Hardware and Operating Systems, Telecommunications, and Network Administration. He has coauthored several MIS-related textbooks, including Database Processing: Fundamentals, Design, and Implementation, first published in 1977 and now in its 14th edition (coauthored with David Kroenke for the 11th, 12th, 13th, and 14th editions), and Database Concepts, now in its 9th edition (coauthored  with David Kroenke for the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th editions).

Scott L. Vandenberg
has been on the Computer Science faculty at Siena College since 1993, where he regularly teaches three different database courses at several levels to both computer science and business majors. Prior to arriving at Siena, he taught undergraduate and graduate courses in database systems at the University of Massachusetts–Amherst. Since arriving at Siena, he has also taught graduate and undergraduate database courses at the University of Washington–Seattle. He has developed five different database courses over this time. His other teaching experience includes courses in introductory computer science, introductory programming, data structures, and management information systems, as well as three years teaching Siena’s required interdisciplinary freshman writing course. Vandenberg’s recent research publications are mainly in the areas of computer science education and data science applications, with earlier work on query optimization and algebraic query languages. He holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and computer science from Cornell University and a master’s degree and a PhD in computer science from the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Medieval history and playing hockey are two things that can tear him away from a database. Vandenberg lives in Averill Park, NY, with his wife, Kristin, and two children.
