Database Design & Development

Because of these data, stored in the second largest database in the world (#1 – US government), Wal-Mart knows that bananas are them most common item in shoppers grocery carts. However, because these data indicated that people tend to buy bananas and cereal at the same time, it now places bananas near the cereal aisle, in addition to the fruits and vegetables aisle. Likewise, Kleenex can be found in the paper goods aisle, but also near cold medicine. Measuring spoons are in house wares aisle, but also next to Crisco shortening.
