Files are more useful when multiple users access the data.

Data redundancy is a condition created within a data storage technology in which the same piece of data is held in two separate places. It is a potential threat to data consistency (It is the process of keeping information uniform as it moves across a network and between various applications on a computer)

Data base is a collection of different tables.

A row—also called a record or tuple—represents a single, implicitly structured data item in a table and represents the relation among the values of a table.

A row is also called a tuple.

Query language is useful for the specification of procedures for the retrieval (and sometimes also modification) of information from a database

ER-Diagram is a visual representation of data that describe how data are related to each other and derived attributes are represented by dashed ellipse.

Generalization is represented by a triangle. Generalization is a bottom-up approach in which two lower level entities combine to form a higher-level entity.

Diamond shape uses to represent the relation among the entities.

For the operation of database management system the most important needs are high speed processor and large storage.
