Database
Management System (DBMS)

As every organisation has a large amount of data, it is important to manage that effectively, to increase the efficiency of business operations. It also helps businesses to reduce overall costs. All the data of an organisation is collectively kept in a database. Wherein, a database is a collection of data in an organized manner that also supports processes that require information. And, to manage a large amount of data, a Database Management System is used by organisations. It provides an efficient method of handling data. This is important to businesses as it helps to quickly and flexibly extract information from a large database.

What is Database Management System (DBMS)?

Database Management System (DBMS) can be explained as specially designed software that store, manage and organise a large amount of information in a database. A DBMS includes a language, which describes the model of all databases in a Database Management System. DBMS is important to organisations as it provides an efficient method for handling a large amount of data. If data is big and complex for conventional tools to manage, then Big Data Architecture is deployed. A Big Data Architecture is a graphical representation of how big data will be stored and managed. It is used for analysing terabytes and petabytes of data within the database.

While having an efficient database helps businesses to effectively extract data from databases, an Enterprise Data Warehouse is used to collect and store data. It is different from DBMS as it is designed to extract information and not data.

Features of DBMS

There are multiple features of DBMS that make it easier for any organisation to use DBMS in their business model and manage databases.

  • A user input data on DBMS and it stores and manages data. The users can retrieve their records as a file or printed version by accessing the database
  • DBMS allows multiple users to access all types of information that is stored in a single database. It also prevents any un- authorised access to database
  • The users can use query languages to collect, search, store and modify to help users manipulate records in a database
  • To meet specific needs of users, they can create custom elements along with default ones
  • A metadata library is provided by DBMS, which describes the organisation of database and its elements

Advantages of using DBMS

  • Maintenance of large database

    As businesses are becoming large, their requirements for storing and managing data are becoming more complex. With the help of DBMS, large databases along with big data and lot of information of big companies can be maintained.

  • Data Integrity

    DBMS helps data to be consistent, accurate and secure as the changes in any information can be done only at one place.

  • No Data Loss

    As DBMS stores files and folders permanently in a database, there is no loss of data of businesses. There is also a backup of data in case of any untoward incident.

  • Easy to Use

    DBMS is very simple to use as it allows easier management of data by providing users with simple tools to create, change and extract business data.

  • No Duplication and Redundancy

    Because many users use a database of an organisation, there are a lot of chances of duplicity. DBMS allows data to be shared so that there are minimum duplication and redundancy. Data in DBMS appears only once and thus reduces the cost of storing unwanted duplicate information.
