What is a database?

A database is an organized collection of information. Some daily examples of how a database works are:

  • An airline reservation system
  • A filing cabinet with lots of files
  • File storage in your computer hard drive

A database system may be as complicated as vehicle licensing center tracking system used to manage new vehicles registrations and updates every minute, or it can be as simple as a collection of electronic business cards on your personal laptop.
