Benefits of a Database and Information-Gathering Techniques
Database: Database is the collection of data or information, so that it can be easily fetched, managed and update. In database data or information is stored in the forms of tables. Each table in a database has it unique name and table duplication is not allowed. Example of database: Oracle 10g, MySQL, SQL Server, IBM DB2 etc. DBMS terms refer to the database management system.

Some of the example of DBMS is1.> Air lines flight management system.2.> Employee’s payroll management system for an organization.3.> Inventory management system for warehouse operations.4.> Student management system for Schools and Colleges. Advantages of DBMS1.> It reduces the data redundancy (duplicate data in the database).2.> Scalable: DBMS systems are highly scalable i.e. these systems can be scaled to store more data as required in the future.3.> Multiple accesses: Database software allows data to be accessed by multiple users simultaneously without causing any locks in the database.4.> Security: In DBMS system we can secure the stored data by providing the access to only authorized user.5.> Backup and recovery process is very easy. We can take back up of complete data to protect it from any natural disaster, such as earth quake, Strom, Flood etc. How DBMS is supporting ACME Global Consulting1.> For ACME we can create...
