What is DBMS?

Managing business data is extremely important.

By James Nunns

A database management system (DBMS) is system software that is designed for creating and managing databases.

DBMS provides users and programmers with a way to create, retrieve, update and manage data in a simple way.

The technology aims to make it easy to create, read, update, and delete data in a database and it basically works as an interface between the database and the end users.

A DBMS is more than one thing – find out more on the next page.

A DBMS is not just one thing, it is a collection of programs that serve different purposes. Popular DBMS systems include MySQL, PostreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, Sybase, SAP HANA, and IBM DB2.

These DBMS offer numerous tools to be able to develop applications and tap into the data in order to improve internal running of an organisation.

Management of the data in an organisation is extremely important as it can help to reduce the amount of redundant, obsolete, and trivial data that is being stored, this can help to reduce storage costs and improve the overall quality of data that is analysed.
