DDS Design and Operations

The initial task of the administrator is to analyze the organization's information requirements. By using the results of this analysis, the administrator can begin to define the characteristics of the network. The structure of the network should reflect the way information is handled by the organization and allow the organization to access the information as efficiently as possible.

This section offers an approach to designing an IDMS DDS network from an organization's informational requirements. The stages of the design process are as follows:
  • Conceptual specification
    -- Analyze and define the organization's information requirements.
  • Design specification
    -- Adapt the conceptual specification to IDMS DDS requirements.
  • Implementation specification
    -- Develop the design into an IDMS DDS network by defining nodes, paths, and databases.
