My investigation topic is “Database Systems”. Since my academic concentration is Computer Engineer, the Database Systems are widely used in the field. This investigation work pretends to briefly explain what is a Database System to those people who are completely know less of the topic. From now on, I will use “DB” for Database Systems.
People daily make use of DB’s without knowing it. For example, when checking emails, you are using a DB System.
A DBMS is a set of software programs that controls the organization, storage, management, and retrieval of data in a database. DBMS are categorized according to their data structures or types. It is a set of prewritten programs that are used to store, update and retrieve a Database.
Database Driven Web Sites
Commonly known as dynamic web sites. Those websites grab the information from a DB. In a same manner, they put information on a DB. For example, your bak’s page is a DB driven site.
Mobile databases are databases that allows the development and deployment of database applications for handheld devices, thus, enabling relational database based applications in the hands of mobile workers.
Some of the commercially available Mobile relational Database systems are:
Regarding my topic of investigation, the only thing I will suggest is that the Companies responsibles of creating and managing Database Systems may bring some more information to the common user that doesn’t have direct knowledge of DB Systems.
For example, we can bring information to people letting them know that DB Systems are everywhere.
