Data is one of the most critical assets of any business. It is used and collected practically
everywhere, from businesses trying to determine consumer patterns based on credit card
usage, to space agencies trying to collect data from other planets. Data, as important as it
is, needs robust, secure, and highly available software that can store and process it
quickly. The answer to these requirements is a solid and a reliable database.

Database software usage is pervasive, yet it is taken for granted by the billions of daily
users worldwide. Its presence is everywhere-from retrieving money through an automatic
teller machine to badging access at a secure office location.

This chapter provides you an insight into the fundamentals of database management
systems and information models.
