This is good for one-to-many
It can store large numbers of segment
and process information efficiently.
It is a simple structure and minimize disk
input and output.
It is less user-friendly.
It creates inflexibility and programming
It is difficult to recognize the database
as hierarchy has to be maintained.
Network Database Models
“ This conceived as a flexible way of
representing objects and their relationships.”
Ability to handle more relationship type.
Ease of data access
Lack of Structural independence
Object Oriented Database
“It actually manages the data access and the
querying of the data from the databases.”
The amount of information that can be
modeled by an OODBMS Is increased.
It is also easier to model this information.
This is also able to have higher modeling
capabilities through extensibility.
Data and operations are separated.
Inadequate for current problems.
