RAHIM YAR KHAN CAMPUS DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DBMS AND FPS

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM AND FILE PROCESSING SYSTEM

Specialized people are required for its coding and development. Duplication of Data. Excessive Program Maintenance. Each new application requires the developer to start from scratch by designing new file formats and descriptions 6. Data independency Data is stored in main server instead of separate files . 9. 5. 3. Consistency In DBMs there is less inconsistency in data because of one main server which is updating the data. Each application has its own private files with little opportunity to share data outside their own applications. Applications are developed independently in file processing systems leading to unplanned duplicate files. Concurrent Access anomalies If multiple users are updating the same data simultaneously it will result in inconsistent data state. 9. 8. 10. A Database Management System (DBMS) is a set of computer programs that controls the creation. 7. Integrity Problem. maintenance. There is less chance of data loss or data theft is not easy. Less integrity problems: In DBMs there are less chances of errors and changes in data. Database management system 1. File descriptions are stored within each application program that accesses a given file. 7. 2. Cheap FPS is less expensive than DBMS. Maintenance of DBMS it is not so much difficult in DBMS because there is not so much load of repeated data. 2. Large data capacity: There is more data storage capacity in DBMS because data is available at one place. Security Problems Enforcing Security Constraints in file processing system is very difficult as the application programs are added to the system in an ad-hoc manner. . 8. 5. Expensive DBMS applications are expensive as compare to FPS. Program-Data Dependence. The problem of integrity is the problem of ensuring that the data in the database is accentuate. Savings of time: DBMS helps its users to save there time in finding out any file or entering or editing of data is not so much time consuming. 4. Lengthy Development Times. 3. 6. 4.so a user doesn’t depend on other files to access to any data.File processing system 1. Security DBMS is a secured system. and the use of the database of an organization and its end users. File processing system is a system used to store and manage data that involves each department or area within an organization. 10. File processing system store data in separate computer files. Less redundancy: In DBMS there is no duplication of data as it is stored in main server so there will be no additional space required. The preceding factors create a heavy program maintenance load. Limited data sharing.
