Posted by 8 October, 2009 Comments Off on What is a Database

A database is basically a collection of files or records logically related to each other into one common place for multiple use. A database model is the organization of data in one database. With databases there is an organized system of retrieving, managing and storing information, and this is done by virtue of tables. The databases are just like the excel tablesĀ  with rows andĀ  columns. The databases are, however, very different from the other spread sheets like excel tables. Some of the notable differences you can find in a database is; perform complex kind of aggregate calculations, cross reference records in different kinds of tables, updating records in bulk.


The databases also retrieve the records that match a certain criteria.
