Evaluation and Selection of Data Base Management Systems

Abstract

A major decision in adopting the data base approach to data management is the choice of a data base management system (dbms). The dbms is a complex software system used for the storage and subsequent manipulation of the organization’s data. All application systems rely on the dbms to provide the interface they require to the data base. The dbms may also provide facilities for data base users to manipulate their data directly. In this central role the dbms is certainly crucial to the success of the data base environment.
