Plan and implement a high
course is intended for individuals who design database solutions for
organizations and have experience with database development and administering
SQL Server databases. These individuals design databases as their primary area
of responsibility. They are responsible to plan and design database structure,
storage, objects, and servers. They also create the plan for the environment in
which the database solution runs.
