Real Business: Why use a DBMS?
Suppose we are building a system to store the information pertaining to the university.
how do we store the data? (file organization, etc.)
how do we query the data? (write programs…)
make sure that updates don’t mess things up?
Provide different views on the data? (registrar versus students)
how do we deal with crashes?
Way too complicated! Go buy a database system!
