Last week I discussed database normalization as a best practice in multicloud architecture. Let’s look at this concept within cloud migration, as well.
Don’t confuse database normalization with data normalization. Data normalization is about reducing redundancy and defining a more optimized structure. Perhaps you DBAs are aware of this process. I taught it in college more than 30 years ago.
Database normalization is the process of reducing redundancy of the databases themselves to create a set of databases that are better focused on serving the needs of the business applications, data scientists, and those performing data analytics.
