A database is a collection of items or records
gathered together in an organized manner. The
most common use for a database on a website
is e-commerce. The database allows accurate
and timely display of the product, product information
and product pricing.
The term database originated within the computing
discipline. Although its meaning has been broadened
by popular use, even to include non-electronic
databases. The properties and design of database
systems are included in the study of information
science. A computer database is a structured
collection of records or data that is stored
in a computer system so that a computer program
or person using a query language can consult
it to answer queries. The records retrieved
in answer to queries are information that can
be used to make decisions.
The term database refers to the collection
of related records, and the software should
be referred to as the database management system
or DBMS. When the context is ambiguous, however,
many database administrators and programmers
use the term database to cover both meanings.
