Starting with the definition of Normalization,
we must get rid of the redundant data and save space at the end.

say


The tradeoff is that now You have to make JOINs on the different tables, because the data is not at a specific table.
For things like reporting the last 6 Moonths' data, DeNormalization should one do...



By the way, there are 5 Forms of Normalization , but beyond the scope I guess...

I'd say convert the 3rd normal form at least, preferably BCNF.
