What is a Database?

A database is a collection of information accessible to computers. Databases are used to store information such as customer records, product catalogs, and financial transactions.

More About Databases

Databases are organized into tables, similar to folders in a file system. Tables contain records, which are similar to files. Furthermore, records have individual fields. In a database, the fields can be different types of information, such as text, numbers, and dates.

Databases can be accessed by computers using a variety of programming languages, including SQL, PHP, and Java. Many software applications allow users to create and manage databases, such as Microsoft Access, FileMaker Pro, and Oracle.

Databases are essential for many business applications, such as Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). They are also used in scientific research, education, and government.
