2 Database Management Systems A database management system (DBMS), or database program, is software that allows you to create, access, and manage a database. DBMSs are available for many sizes and types of computers.
3 Database Management Systems
4 Data Dictionary A data dictionary, sometimes called a repository, contains data about each field in those files. For each file it stores details such as the file name, description, the file s relationship to other files, and the number of records in the file. For each field, it stores the field name, description, field type, field size, default value, validation rules, and the field s relationship to other fields.
5 Data Dictionary Because the data dictionary contains details about data, some call it metadata, meta meaning more comprehensive. It is a crucial backbone to a DBMS so only skilled professionals should update its contents. It is used to perform validation checks and limit the type of data that can be entered.
6 Data Dictionary A data dictionary allows users to specify a default value for a field, which is a value that the DBMS initially displays in a field. Ex. If most students live in Indiana, the default value could read IN. The user doesn t have to type the default value which helps in reducing errors.
7 Data Dictionary
8 File Retrieval and Maintenance A DBMS provides several tools that allow users and programs to retrieve and maintain data in the database (adding, modifying, and deleting). To retrieve or select data in a database, you query it, which is a request for specific data from the database. Users can instruct the DBMS to display, print, or store the results of a query, making it one of the more powerful database features.
9 Query Language A query language consists of simple, English-like statements that allow users to specify the data to display, print, or store. Each has its own grammar and vocabulary. A person without programming experience can learn a query language in a short time. Most queries are used to retrieve data. Some DBMSs provide wizards to guide users through the steps of creating a query.
10 Query by Example Most DBMSs include query by example (QBE), a feature that has a graphical user interface to assist users with retrieving data.
11 Form A form, sometimes called a data entry form, is a window on the screen that provides areas for entering or modifying data in a database. Well-designed forms should validate data as it is entered. A form that sends entered data across a network or the Internet is called an e-form, short for electronic form. E-forms generally use a means to secure the data while it is transported across the network.
13 Report Generator A report generator, also called a report writer, allows users to design a report on the screen, retrieve data into the report design, and then display or print the report. Unlike a form, report generators can only retrieve data. Report generators allow you to format the page and some allow you to create a report as a Web page.
14 Report Generator
15 Data Security A DBMS provides means to ensure that only authorized users can access data at permitted times. Most DBMSs allow different levels of access privileges to be identified for each field in the database, defining the actions that a specific user or group can perform.
16 Data Security Access privileges for data involve establishing who can enter new data, modify existing data, delete unwanted data, and view data. Ex. A student would have read-only privileges: allowing them to view the list of offered classes but not change them. Ex. A department head would be able to modify the data. Ex. Other users would have no access privileges to the data.
17 Data Security Many organizations adopt a principle of least privilege policy, where users access privileges are limited to the lowest level necessary to perform required tasks.
18 Backup and Recovery Occasionally a database is damaged or destroyed, so a DBMS provides a variety of techniques to restore the database to a usable form. A backup, or copy, of the entire database should be made on a regular basis. Some DBMSs have a built-in backup utility while others require a separate utility.
19 Backup and Recovery More complex DBMSs maintain a log, which is a listing of activities that modify the contents of the database. Ex. A registration clerk modifies a student s address, the change will appear in the log. The log contains: A copy of the record prior to the change called the before image The change being made And a copy of the record after the change called the after image The log may also store who made the change and when.
20 Backup and Recovery DBMSs that create logs usually provide a recovery unit, which uses the logs and/or backups to restore a database when it becomes damaged or destroyed using rollforward and rollback techniques. In a rollforward, or forward recovery, the DBMS uses the log to reenter changes made to the database since the last save or backup. In a rollback, or backward recovery, the DBMS uses the log to undo any changes made to the database during a certain period.
21 Backup and Recovery Continuous backup is a backup plan in which all data is backed up whenever a change is made. Continuous backup provides recovery in a matter of seconds. This technique can cost more but is growing in popularity due to its benefits.
22 Relational, Object-Oriented, and Multidimensional Databases Every database and DBMS is based on a specific data model. A data model consists of rules and standards that define how the database organizes data.
23 Relational, Object-Oriented, and Multidimensional Databases Three popular data models in use today are relational, object-oriented, and multidimensional. Some are called object-relational databases because they combine features of the relational and object-oriented data models.
24 Relational Databases A relational database is a database that stores data in tables that consist of rows and columns. Each row has a primary key and each column has a unique name. A developer of a relational database refers to a file as a relation, a record as a tuple, and a field as an attribute.
25 Relational Databases A user of a relational database refers to a file as a table, a record as a row, and a field as a column. In addition to storing data, a relational database also stores data relationships, which are links within the data. With a relational database, you can set up a relationship between tables with common fields.
26 Relational Databases
27 Relational Databases A developer of relational databases uses normalization to organize the data in the database. Normalization is a process designed to ensure the data within the relations (tables) contains the least amount of duplication.
28 SQL Structured Query Language (SQL) is a popular query language that allows users to manage, update, and retrieve data. SQL has special keywords and rules that users include in SQL statements.
29 Object-Oriented Databases An object-oriented database (OODB) stores data in objects. An object is an item that contains data, as well as the actions that read or process the data. OODBs can store more types of data than relational databases, access data faster, and allow programmers to reuse objects.
30 Object-Oriented Databases A multimedia database stores images, audio clips, and/or video clips. Ex. Voice mail system A groupware database stores documents such as schedules, calendars, manuals, memos, and reports. Ex. Schedules for meeting times.
31 Object-Oriented Databases A computer-aided design (CAD) database stores data about engineering, architectural, and scientific designs. Contains a list of components of the item being designed, the relationship amongst components, and design drafts. A hypertext database contains text links to other types of documents. A hypermedia database contains text, graphics, video, and sound.
32 Object Query Language Object-oriented and object-relational databases often use a query language called object query language (OQL) to manipulate and retrieve data. OQL is similar to SQL and uses many of the same rules, grammar, and keywords.
33 Multidimensional Databases A multidimensional database stores data in dimensions. Whereas a relational database is a twodimensional table, a multidimensional database can store more than two dimensions of data. These multiple dimensions, known as hypercube, allow users to access and analyze any view of the database data.
34 Multidimensional Databases The number of dimensions varies. Ex. A retail business might have 4: products, customers, regions, and time. Nearly every multidimensional database has a dimension of time. Multidimensional databases can consolidate data much faster than a relational database.
35 Data Warehouses One application that uses multidimensional databases is a data warehouse, which is a huge database that stores and manages the data required to analyze historical and current transactions. A data warehouse typically has a userfriendly interface so users can easily interact with its data.
36 Data Warehouses Data in a distributed database exists in many separate locations through a network or the Internet and is accessible through a single server. Data warehouses often use a process called data mining to find patterns and relationships amongst data. Ex. E-commerce for customer preferences A smaller version of a data warehouse, a data mart, contains a database that helps a specific group or department make decisions.
37 Web Databases Much of the information on the Internet exists in databases stored on the Web. Some Web databases are collaborative databases, where users store and share photos, videos, recordings, and other personal media with registered users. The Web page is used as the front end to the database.
38 Web Database A Web database usually resides on a database server, which is a computer that stores and provides access to a database. One type of program that manages the sending and receiving of data between the front end and the database server is a CGI (Common Gateway Interface) script.
39 Database Administration Managing a company s database requires a great deal of coordination. The role of coordinating the use of the database belongs to the database analysts and administrators.
40 Database Design Guidelines A carefully designed database makes it easier for a user to query the database, modify its data, and create reports. Determine the purpose of the database Design the tables or files Design the records and fields for each table Determine the relationship among the tables
41 Role of the Database Analysts and Administrators The database analyst (DA), or data modeler, focuses on the meaning and usage of data. The DA decides on the proper placement of fields, defines the relationships among data, and identifies users access privileges. The database administrator (DBA) requires a more technical inside view of the data. The DBA creates and maintains the data dictionary, manages security of the database, monitors the performance of the database, and checks backup and recovery procedures.
42 Role of the Employee as a User Today, employees access databases from their office desktop computers, notebook computers, or even smart phones and other mobile devices. Employees interact with databases related to inventory and identify new data in the database.
