A database is an organized collection of structured data stored in a computer system. A database is like a digital filing cabinet where you can store and organize information.

  • Data: The actual information you want to keep (e.g., customer names, product prices).
  • Database Management System (DBMS): Software that helps manage and access the data efficiently.
  • Imagine a spreadsheet where you list your contacts. Each row represents a person, and each column holds specific details (like name, phone number, and email).
  • Databases work similarly but can handle much more data and allow multiple users to access and update it simultaneously.

For more detailed information, you can explore What Are Databases? or Database basics.
