FUTURE-PROOF DATA MODELS

The art of designing a good database schema is a bit like landing an aircraft: it is fairly easy to start and relatively difficult to master. A good relational model is what makes a database exceptional and powerful. However, creating a good table layout for your PostgreSQL database requires a fair amount of theoretical and practical knowledge. Expertise in database modeling is definitely needed.

This is where CYBERTEC comes in: based on many years of experience with PostgreSQL, we help you to create well-structured data models that are adapted to your business model and specific needs.  Our experts make sure, your database is high-performant and future-proof.

Database normalization

In the relational world, normalization can be really helpful to fix your data structure. Normalization is the process of organizing columns and tables in a way that data redundancy is reduced and data integrity is improved at the same time.
Academia suggest so called ”Normal forms”, which should be followed in order to create a good, future proof and solid data model. This does not allow for errors and ensures proper storage of the most valuable commodity in your company: high quality data.

Optimizing columns and tables

Having a fully functional and correct data model is already a good start. However, if you want to have a exceptional model there is a lot more to consider. In many cases, even small changes can produce a huge benefit.

For example: Did you know that even the order of columns can make a real difference? Arranging columns in a clever way can speed up your database and noticeably reduce the storage footprint of your table. If you want to know more, check out the following blog post: Shrinking storage footprint
