A database management system is software that provides users with a systematic process of creating, collecting, storing, organizing, retrieving, updating and managing data in a database. A critical component of a database management system is the centralized view of data that varying users can access from multiple locations. Additional attributes include logging and auditing of activity, change management, performance monitoring, and backup and recovery. Concurrency, security and data integrity are also pivotal elements.
