What is a DBMS?

DBMS stands for Database Management System. It is a software application that is used to store and retrieve data within a system. It does so by creating and managing databases. A general DBMS is tasked with the definition, creation, querying, update, and administration of databases.

A DBMS allows the programmer a quick and efficient way to create, store, retrieve, update and manage data. It ensures that the data stays organizing and is easily assessable to the user via application programs.

Some popular DBMS are MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, Sybase, SAP HANA, and IBM DB2.
