Your data is a valuable asset for your business and keeping it well organized and easy to use when needed is essential. To do this, many businesses have opted for database management systems. So – what are database management systems and why are they important business tools? A good analogy is that a database is like a library, and our data is the books in it. A database management system (or DBMS) is a way of organizing that data, just as books in a library are cataloged using the Dewey Decimal system for easy filing and retrieval.
What a DBMS does
It’s all in the name: your database management system secures and organizes your stored data and makes it easier for you to be in control of your all-important data. This control, and the convenience that a DBMS offers, has a lot of advantages. These include:
- • Making it easier to find the data you need
- • Allowing you to control who has access to the data
- • Eliminating the need to restructure the data for different purposes
- • More economical processing of data
- • Unified administration procedures
- • Eliminating data inconsistencies between file systems
- • Multiple users can access the data simultaneously
In short, a DBMS can simplify the tasks your users need to do, without putting data control and security at risk.
