limitations of file based processing
Limitations of File-Based Processing
  • Separation and Isolation of data
  • Duplication of data
  • Data dependence
  • Incompatibility of files
  • Fixed queries/ proliferation of application programs
database
Database
  • “A shared collection of logically related data (and a description of this data) designed to meet the information needs of an organization.”

  • Six entities (the rectangles): Branch, Staff, Property_for_Rent, Owner, Renter and Viewing.
  • Six relationships (the diamonds): IsAllocated, Has, Overseas, Owns, Requests, and Takes

DBMS
  • “ A software system that enables users to define, create and maintain the database and provides controlled access to this database.”
  • Data definition Language (DDL): data types, structures and constraints on the data.
  • Data Manipulation Language (DML): insert, update, delete, and retrieve data
  • Query Language: general enquiry facility
slide14
Two types of DML:
    • Procedural: manipulates the database record by record.
    • Non-Procedural: operates on a set of records.
      • Most common is Structured Query Language (SQL)
  • Controlled Access to the database:
    • security system
    • integrity system
    • Concurrency controlled, shared access
    • recovery control system
    • user accessible catalog

hardware
Hardware
  • Some DBMS run only on particular hardware and operating systems
  • Minimum amount of main memory and disk space to run
  • Client -Server architecture:
    • Central computer runs the backend of the DBMS
    • Other computers run the frontend

software
Software
  • The DBMS software
  • Application programs: C, COBOL, Fortran, Ada etc.
  • Using a fourth level language such as SQL
  • Fourth generation tools:
    • rapid development of applications
    • non-procedural query languages
    • report generators
    • form generators
    • graphic generators
    • application generators
  • Fourth generation tools can improve productivity.
slide20
Data
  • The structure of the database is called the schema.
  • Tables: Property_for_Rent, Owner, Renter and Lease
  • Attributes
  • System Catalog contains:
    • Names, types, and sizes of data items
    • Integrity constraints on data
    • Names of authorized users who have access to the data
    • What indexes and storage structures are being used- Tree structures.
slide21
Procedures:
  • Log on to the DBMS
  • Use particular DBMS facility or application program
  • Start and stop the DBMS
  • Make backup copies of the database
  • Handle hardware and software failures
  • Change the structure of the table, reorganize the data across multiple disks, improve performance, or archive data to secondary storage.

PEOPLE:

  • DB engineers, DB designers, DB developers/ programmers
data and database administrators
Data and database administrators
  • Data Administrator (DA)
    • management of data (database planning, development, maintenance of standards, policies, procedures and conceptual and logical database design).
  • Database Administrators:
    • Physical database design and implementation, security and integrity control, maintanence of the operational system and ensuring satisfactory performance for the applications and users.
database designers
Database designers
  • Logical database designers:
    • Entities, attributes, relationships, constraints Business rules
  • Physical database designers:
    • Decides how it is to be physically realized.
application programmers
Application Programmers
  • Retrieving, inserting, updating and deleting
  • Programs
    • Third Generation Language (3GL)
    • Fourth Generation Language (4GL)
  • End Users:
    • Inexperienced Users
    • Sophisticated users
the paradigm shift
The Paradigm Shift
  • The structure of the database is determined using the database design.
  • Paradigm shift: think of the data first and the application later.
  • Poorly designed database --> errors
  • Well designed database --> correct information
  • A complete methodology for database design.
    • Entity- Relationship diagram
    • Guidelines to help identify the entities, attributes and relationships
advantages of databases
Advantages of Databases
  • Control of data redundancy
  • Data consistency
  • More information from the same amount of data
  • Sharing the data
  • Improve data integrity and improve security
  • Enforce standards
  • Economies of scale
  • Balance the conflicting requirements
  • Improve data accessibility and responsiveness
  • Increase productivity
  • Improve maintenance through data interdependencies (pgm-data independence)
  • Increase concurrency
  • Improve backend recovery services
disadvantages of databases
Disadvantages of Databases
  • Complexity
  • Size
  • Cost of DBMS
  • Additional hardware costs
  • Cost of conversion
  • Performance
  • High impact of a failure
