Today’s information system deals a lot with computers that are composed of what we call a hardware and software system. Most people of might be familiar withthe two systems since it is an important key for provided users to make use in their every day lives. These systems need a lot of data in order to function, computer technologists have created a database management system that providescapabilities for manipulating data, handles all interaction between the user anddatabase, allows users to store, retrieve and upgrade data, it also obtains the datafrom the database and relays it back to the user. The most common types of database management systems are Oracle and Microsoft Access. Both of thesemanagement systems have its advantages and disadvantages. More so, thesedatabase management systems can also be furthered explained by the limitations of the data, Data Warehouses, Data Marts, Data Mining, and Data Querying. Much of the database system that will be discussed will probably have an impact in the futureso before we go ahead in our discussion let’s first take a look at the most commontypes of database management for a better understand of what databasemanagement is all about.
Various DBMS Products and Software
Different database systems offer substantially different ways of storing andretrieving information, and deciding what to use will require asking yourself questionsabout storage and retrieval. This section tries to explore this by looking at three"classes" of database systems. This article will deal with SQL Databases. A follow-uparticle will discuss xBase descendants and Keyed Tables like DBM.One of the most common database questions that come up is "Where is theMS Access clone?" One thing that should be made clear is that there isn't such athing. "Experts" tend to regard this as a good thing, as MS Access tries to do toomany things all at once to be really particularly successful at them all.MS Access combines Data storage and retrieval, A multiplexing data accesssystem, A report writer, and a form generator for data entry and other interactive datamanipulation. Most of the database tools that will be described here primarily focuson the first area. By doing just storage and retrieval, reliability certainly increases.Mind you, there would be considerable merit in having a single integratedenvironment for data access, writing reports, and providing GUIed access to updatedata. There are ongoing projects to provide those sorts of capabilities, but none areyet quite as "GUI-pretty and newbie-friendly" as MS Access.There are a lot of database systems that run on Linux using SQL data accessschemes.These databases are often fairly "heavyweight"; requiring considerable disk andmemory resources and providing data access capabilities of considerablesophistication.
