People came up with the term database as the computer industry was growing in popularity. A database management system means exactly what its name is, it is computer software designed to create and manage databases. This software gives users and programmers an organized way to retrieve, create, update, and manage data. A database management system (DBMS) creates ways for end users to read data in a database as well (MindTap). The DBMS basically serves as a crossing point between databases and normal users or programs, confirming that data will constantly be organized and stay accessible pretty easily.
Since there are so many database management systems are available, so it is important to ensure that they communicate with each other. This is because, most database software comes with an Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) driver which allows the database to incorporate with other databases. A DBMS perform several important functions that guarantee the integrity and consistency of the data in the database. Most of these functions are transparent to end users, and most can be achieved only through the use of a DBMS. They including the data dictionary management, data store management, security management and also backup and recovery management.
