is an organised collection of structured data
, usually under the managment of a Database Management System
. The word database
is often used when what is really meant is a DBMS
There is a tendency to see a database or a DBMS
as merely a system for the persistent
storage and retrieval of data, but this view tends to miss the organised
part of the definition.
