German term or phrase: eine gute Abbildung haben
From a document regarding database programming:

ODBMS _haben eine gute Abbildung_ von Objektnetzwerken in die Datenbank.
leepenya
to map well
Explanation:
In the context of ODBMS, I'd definitely use "mapping", not image. The German you quote is somewhat ungrammatical, making it harder to provide you with a definitve answer; the way I interpret the sentence you quote is that the object networks are being mapped into the database. (If the maps were already in the database, the German would have to read "in der Datenbank".)

Ernst Deutsch-Englisch : Abbildung f (Math) / mapping, map

The primary skill needed to work on an ODBMS is the ability to develop an object model and to program in an object programming language. Those skills, however, are not unique to using an ODBMS. You need them for an O-R Mapping project as well, or even to write an object program.
