Database Management System (DBMS). □ Collection of interrelated data. □ Set of programs to access the data. □ DBMS contains.

Inforcing Integrity constraints : Data integrity means that the data contained in the database is both accurate and consistent.
Integrity means constraints, which are consistency rules that the database system should not violate. Most database applications have certain integrity constraints that must hold for the data. A DBMS should provide capabilities for defming and enforcing these constraints. The simplest type of integrity constraint specifying a data type for each data item.
Efficient data access: DBMS utilizes a variety of sophisticated techniques to store and retrieve data efficiently. This feature is specially important if the data is stored on external storage devices. Improved the data sharing: Since, database system is a centralised repository of data belonging to the entire organization, it can be shared by all authorized users.
Existing application program can share the data in the database. Furthermore, new application programs can be developed on the existing data in the database to share the same data and add only that data that is not currently stored. Therefore, more users and applications can share more of the data.
Improved security: Database security is the protection of database from unauthorized users. The database administrator DBA ensures that proper access procedure is followed, including proper authentication schemes for access to the DBMS and additional checks before permitting access to sensitive data. A DBA can define user names and passwords to identify people authorized to use the database.
Improved data consistency: If the redundancy is removed or controlled, chances of having inconsistence data is also removed and controlled.
In database system, such inconsistencies are avoided to some extent by making them know to DBMS. DBMS ensures that any change made to either of the two entries in the database is automatically applied to the other one as well.
This process is known as propagating updates. Program data Independence: In the database environment, it allows for changes at one level of the database without affecting other levels. These changes are absorbed by the mapping between the levels with the database approach, metedata are stored in a central location called reprository.
This property of the data systems allows an organization's data to change without changing the application programs that process the data.
Improved data quality: The database system provides a number of tools and processes to improve the data quality. Providing persistant storage for program objects and data structures: Database can be used to provide persistent storage for program objects and data structures.
This is one of the main reasons for object oriented database systems. The persistent storage of program objects and data structures are an important function of database system. A DBMS must have the capability to represents a varity of complex relationships among the data as well as to retrieve and update data easily and efficiently. Permitting inferencing and actions using rules: Some database system provide capabilities for defining duduction rules for inferencing new information from the stored database facts.
Such systems are called deductive database systems. More powerful functionality is provided by active database system, which provide active rules that can automatically initiate actions when certain events and conditions occur. Availability of up-to-date informatin to all users: A DBMS makes the database available to all users. As soon as one user's update is applied to the database, all other users can immediately see this update.
This availability of up-to-date information is essential for many transaction-processing applications, such as reservation systems, banking databased and it is made possible by the concurrency control and recovery subsystems of a DBMS. Flexibility : It may be necessary to change the structure of a database as requirements changes.
Modern DBMSs allows certain types of evolutionary changes to the structure of the database without affecting the stored data and the existing application programs. Increased concurrency: DBMSs manage concurrent database access and prevents the problem of loss of information or loss of integrity.
Balance of conflicting requirments : The DBA resolves the conflicting requirements of various users and applications.
A DBA can structure the system to provide an overall service that is the best for the organization. A DBA can choose the best file structure and access methods to get optimal performance for the response-critical operations, while permitting less critical applications to continue to use the database.
There are the following disadvantages of DBMS. Complexity of Backup and Recovery : For a centralised shared database to be accurate and available all times, a comprehensive procedure is required to be deVeloped and used for providing backup copies of data and for restoring a database when damage occurs. A modern DBMS normally automates many more of the backup and recovery tasks than a file oriented system.
Increased installation and management cost: The large and complex DBMS software has a high initial cost. It requires trained manpower to install and operate and also has substantial annual maintenance and support cost. Additional hardware cost: The cost of DBMS installation varies significantly, depending on the environment and functionality, size of the hardware and the recurring annual maintenance cost of hardware and software.
Requirement of new and specialized manpower : Because of rapid changes in database technology and organization's business needs, the organization's need to hire, retrain its manpower on regular basis to design and implement databases, provide database administration services and manage a staff of new people. Tales and short stories. Tourism and travel. Database Management Systems. Last published: The data are typically organized to model relevant aspects of reality in a way that supports processes requiring this information.
For example, modeling the availability of rooms in hotels in a way that supports finding a hotel with vacancies. Database management systems DBMSs are specially designed applications that interact with the user, other applications, and the database itself to capture and analyze data.
