So, what is a DBMS (Database Management Software)?
A DBMS is computer software that empowers the users to create, store, manage, and analyze their database efficiently. While programmers can create, recover, modify, and manage data more systematically, end users can read, comprehend, and update the same more seamlessly. It is an interface between the database and the developers or/and the end-users and ensures that data is consistent, dependable, organized, secured, and accessible regardless of geographical boundaries.
Since you can have centralized access to the data, you can not only have reasonable control over the data. But, you can also give the required access to specific users.
Gone are those days when emails and docs were used to communicate and share critical data – now everything is accessible on the cloud, you need to organize them with the help of efficient developers and programmers.
Using a DBMS, you can restrict the data your stakeholders see, and also with different views of a single database schema; you can control how they can view the data.
When you implement DBMS in your enterprise, you offer both physical and rational data independence. It means that the users and applications need not know where your data is stored or be bothered about any change to the storage and hardware used for your database. As long as programs use API for database, developers can make changes to the database without modifying programs.
Benefits of DBMS
With the volume of data increasing, organizations are compelled to spend a lot of their time in maintaining their data volume, whereas they should focus more on how to utilize it for their business development.
Compared to the traditional File-Based Data Management System, the contemporary Database Management System offers a lot of benefits and help you to focus more on your business:
Reduced data redundancy
Instead of having multiple files in different locations, you can now maintain only one database and any change you make in it will reflect immediately.
Easy data sharing
Follow the protocol, and share data with all your stakeholders, including your remote users with the required level of authorization.
Enhanced data security
Give restricted access to the users and keep your data protected from any breach. Do not give unauthorized access to any users.
Seamless backup and recovery
The hassle of taking data backup is gone with DBMS, as periodic backup is done automatically. Furthermore, recovering data after any system failure or crash is also very easy.
Consistent and reliable data
Since there are multiple databases in a DBMS, and they suffice the need of different users, data integrity is crucial. With the proper database management system in place, data is consistent, and thus also more reliable.
More than one user can access the same database and make the changes as required. So, no more time waste in communication and updating data from one file to the other. This also reduces the chances of manual errors.
It supports multiple versions of Linux, Windows, and UNIX. It is also secured, and not only occupies less space but is also suitable for large databases.
Microsoft SQL Server
It works effectively on Windows and Linux operating system. It is well attuned with Oracle and is one of the best software for managing heavy workload where multiple users can access the same database.
It is an advanced database and can be used on Windows and Linux operating system. It enjoys all the benefits of a database – security, fast performance, and quick data retrieval.
It can be conveniently used on Windows, UNIX, and Linux. One of the easiest to install the database. You can access data quickly and can save an extensive database without consuming much space.
The most favored relational database for small and medium enterprise. It comes with Microsoft Office Suite, and maintenance cost is also very less compared to all the other DBMS.
