ABSTRACT
This essay investigates the current trends in Information Systems Development. It is rare to find an organization in any industry that does not maintain numerous databases to support core business processes. In today's knowledge-base economy, the information compiled and created in an organization is often amongst the company's most valuable assets. Knowledge, its structure, organization and accessibility are commonly acknowledged as key strategic differentiators for many organizations. The development of large-stand alone databases (or data repositories) is no longer the norm for many organizations. Stand-alone databases are being replaced with out-of-the-box database application solutions such as CRM or ERP systems. Legacy stand-alone databases that support key operational processes are being linked to other stand alone or vendor databases in order to support business operations. The development of database systems is rapidly becoming a collaborative effort across enterprises. The true value of organizational information is its ability to inform and empower employees across the company and along processes. In most companies today, databases and the information contained within them are accessed by hundreds or even thousands of employees during the course of the workday. Database development has become the responsibility of every employee who inputs or extracts information from the system in order to support business processes. The issues associated with maintaining database integrity and data stewardship will be discusses in the context of today's shared database development environment.
