MS2781 - Designing Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Server-Side Solutions

If you have any questions about registering for this class, please call (877) 832-0688 Ext. 1493 or email us at
This course provides students with the knowledge and skills to design server-side solutions for Microsoft® SQL Server 2005T. The course focuses on teaching database developers who work in enterprise environments to identify and place database technologies during design to achieve a suitable solution that meets the needs of an organization. Students will also learn to consider the solution from a system-wide view instead of from a single database or server perspective.

Before attending this course, students must:
  • Have experience reading user requirements and business-need documents. For example, development project vision/mission statements or business analysis reports.

  • Understand Transact-SQL syntax and programming logic.

  • Understand XML. Specifically, they must be familiar with the syntax of XML, what elements and attributes are, and how to distinguish them.

  • Understand security requirements. Specifically, must understand how unauthorized users can gain access to sensitive information and be able to plan strategies to prevent access.

  • Be able to design a database to 3NF and know the tradeoffs when backing out of the fully normalized design (denormalization) and designing for performance and business requirements in addition to being familiar with design models, such as Star and Snowflake schemas.

  • Have basic monitoring and troubleshooting skills.

  • Have basic knowledge of the operating system and platform. That is, how the operating system integrates with the database, what the platform or operating system can do, and how interaction between the operating system and the database works.

  • Have basic knowledge of application architecture. That is, how applications can be designed in three layers, what applications can do, how interaction between the application and the database works, and how the interaction between the database and the platform or operating system works.

  • Have some experience with a reporting tool.

  • Be familiar with SQL Server 2005 features, tools, and technologies.

  • Have a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 credential, or equivalent experience.

  • In addition, it is recommended, but not required, that students have completed:
  • Course 2778: Writing Queries Using Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Transact-SQL.

  • Course 2779: Implementing a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Database.

  • Course 2780: Maintaining a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Database.
