" The authors have met their goal. They have shown the relationship between the complexity of the development of an information system and the accepted wisdom in its application domain....I strongly recommend this book to people who view information systems only as a technology and do not remember that any technology that can change the way people people live and work is necessarily a social and philosophical subject." G. Rumolo, Information Sysytems
"This is an intellectually challenging, demanding, and mind-stretching book, valuable both as a summary of currant knowledge about the subjects of information systems development and data modeling and for the insights it gives about alternative approaches." Adele M. Fasick, The Library Quarterly
"I strongly recommend this book to people who view information systems only as a technology and do not remember that any technology that can change the way people live and work is necessarily a social and philosophical subject." G. Rumolo, Computing Reviews
Data modelling was hypothesised to be the salvation of an organisation's data problems. This book aims to analyse the problems encountered and to present a comparative philosophical study of the various approaches. The authors explore the epistemology, ontology and rationality of each modelling approach, and describe the underlying assumptions embedded in them.
