Database design and development

What are the benefits of a database?

In the simplest terms, a database is an organised collection of information. In itself, if might not seem so different to having thousands of printed pages in a filing cabinet.

 

The difference is, with a correctly-organised database, a lot more information can be accessed and produced. For example, if you had a filing cabinet full of invoices you have sent out, you can have them organised by customer or by date - but not by both. A database can organise your information in any way - by date, by customer, by purchased item; almost anything you can think of.

 

Even more, a database can be used to easily obtain aggregate and calculated functions - if you wanted to know how many invoices last year contained a particular purchase, and what the average number of units purchased on those invoice was, this can be done in seconds on a database - think how long that would take in a filing cabinet.

 

Of course, almost nobody using filing cabinets as a database nowadays - however, many small businesses still use a spreadsheet (or even a text file) to hold important information. Although far better than a physical filing cabinet, they lack the abilities that a database have, and quickly get unwieldly as the number of items increase.
