  1. Database

    A database is an organized collection of data. The data is typically organized to model relevant aspects of reality, in a way that supports processes requiring this information. Database management systems are specially designed applications that interact with the user, other applications, and the database itself to capture and analyze data. A general-purpose database management system is a software system designed to allow the definition, creation, querying, update, and administration of databases. Well-known DBMSs include MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Access, Oracle, SAP, dBASE, FoxPro, IBM DB2 and FilemakerPro. A database is not generally portable across different DBMS, but different DBMSs can inter-operate by using standards such as SQL and ODBC or JDBC to allow a single application to work with more than one database.
