What are advantages of DBMS over traditional file based systems?
As compared to traditional file based systems, Database Management Systems (DBMS) are quicker and more efficient in collecting data. They also help consolidate and organize the data, which would have to be otherwise done manually. Another benefit of DBMS is that it helps reduce redundancy via data normalization, which again would otherwise have to be done manually.
Using DBMS also allows the users to reorganize the data anytime as depending on their needs. Additionally, the necessary data can be extracted or utilized via algorithms to find patterns and other detail that a user might all. All of which would have been very time consuming in traditional file based systems
