The Object-Relational Impedance Mismatch and Its Impact on Information Quality

with Ron Fuller

The object-relational impedance mismatch is a well-understood phenomenon that almost always results in poor database design.  The problem is not that databases are difficult to design well, but that writing code against a well-designed database is difficult.  Coding against a poorly designed database is much easier -- but as long as the end product meets the business requirement and passes user acceptance testing, it is seen as a success; at least for the time being.

In this session you will learn:

  • The technical, cultural and academic antecedents of bad database design and their impact on information quality
  • How the object-relational impedance mismatch is also a metaphor for the unnecessarily conflicting interests of the business and IT
  • How to "do the right thing" in an unmanaged environment, and how to encourage the business to help you do that
