database management system (DBMS)

Popular Terms
Computer program that catalogs, indexes, locates, retrieves, and stores data, maintains its integrity, and outputs it in the form desired by a user. Unlike a data processing system (which manipulates and transforms data), a DBMS performs only minimal mathematical operations. Its overall purpose is to organize and manage data, and make it available on demand.
