What is a Database Management System?
A Database Management System (DBMS) is a piece of software that efficiently collects, stores and processes information.
Essentially it is a database overlayed with a user interface that makes it accessible to any level of end user.
Data is stored and processed to be in its most efficient form in the database then presented and modified via the user interface.
The user interface makes adding or modifying information as efficient as possible, reducing repetition and increasing accuracy.
The system can also automatically generate useful insights and statistics.
