Database Management Basics

Database management is a system for managing the data that supports a business’s operations. It involves storing data and distribution to application programs and users and then modifying it if necessary and monitoring the changes in the data and preventing it from getting damaged due to unexpected failures. It is a component of the entire informational infrastructure of a company that supports decision making, corporate growth, and compliance with laws like the GDPR and California Consumer Privacy Act

The first database systems were invented in the 1960s by Charles Bachman, IBM and others. They evolved into information management systems (IMS) which allowed large amounts data to be stored and retrieved for a variety of reasons. From calculating inventory, to supporting complex financial accounting functions as well as human resource functions.

A database is a collection of tables which organize data according to an established pattern, such as one-to-many relationships. It utilizes primary keys to identify records, and allow cross-references between tables. Each table contains a number of fields, known as attributes, that represent facts about the entities that comprise the data. The most popular type of database today is a relational model, developed by E. F. “Ted” Codd at IBM in the 1970s. This model is based on normalizing data to make it simpler to use. It also makes it simpler to update data since it eliminates the necessity of changing various toys for sale

Most DBMSs can support multiple database types by providing different levels of internal and external organization. The internal level is focused on cost, scalability, and other operational issues, like the physical layout of the database. The external level determines how the database is displayed in user interfaces and other applications. It could comprise a combination of different external views (based on different data models) and can also include virtual tables which are generated using generic data to improve performance.
