Admin System Overview

What is a Database Management System (DBMS)?

A DBMS is a set of computer programs designed to control the creation, maintenance and use of a database.  A DBMS allows organizations to place control in its agents and/or database administrators. A DBMS software package allows  for the integrated  collection of data records and files. DBMS may use a variety of database models for example a network or relational model and in larger systems the DBMS is designed to extract and retrieve data in a structured and informative way.  The main feature of a DBMS is the ability to extract essential operational information without the need for a complicated piece of code or mathematical programming. The main feature central to a successful DBMS is the ability to pull a data query giving quick and easy access to the information needed.

Euro Systems operates fourth-generation programming language and other application developments/ features to help specify both logical and organized information from a specified database.  The main benefits are control of access to the data, enforcing the integrity of the data, controlling and managing concurrency as well as the ability to restore the database.

General Components of a DBMS

Below are the main components of a Euro System DBMS designed with your company and needs in mind.

1)      The DBMS Engine- this is the part that takes a logical request from other DBMS subsystems and then coverts it into a physical equivalent. This engine then accesses the database and data dictionary as they exist on a storage device.

2)      DBMS Definition subsystem- this helps the user to create and maintain the data dictionary and also define the structure of the files.

3)      DBMS Manipulation subsystem- this helps the user the add, alter or delete information in a database or query it for valuable information. Software tools within the system are usually the primary interfaces between the user and information in the database.

4)      Application Generation Subsystem- this contains facilities to allow the user to develop transaction type applications such as data entry and interfaces.

5)      Data Administration- this helps the user to manage the overall database environment- e.g backup and recovery, security, query optimization and elements of change management.

A DBMS in simplistic terms

A DBMS in simplistic terms is a system that is where related data can be stored and accessed in an efficient, timely and compact manner. Commercial Data processing especially in a sales or telemarketing operation is key and with flexible search and data entry tools can dramatically enhance the operational ability of your company.
