("RDBMS") management system that makes use of a relational type database. [D04873] RUP
A type of database system in which data is stored in tables related by common fields; the most widely used database model today.
A means of storing data in tables in a way that eliminates redundant data elements so that it can be accessed in any way desired via SQL (structured query language).
A system in which the database is organized and accessed according to the relationships between data items.
A structured computer information storage and retrieval system where the basic unit is a Table with Rows and Columns (See Relation). Data is defined accessed and modified with SQL statements.
A database management system with the ability to access data organized in tabular files that may be related together by a common field (item). An RDBMS has the capability to recombine the data items from different files, thus providing powerful tools for data storage.
Organizes data into a series of records that are stored in linked tables.
A database system built around the relational model based on tables, columns and views.
RDBMS a type of database management system (DBMS) that stores data in the form of related tables. The relationships among data are defined through key elements established by users who are knowledgeable about the data. Information is extracted from the database through a query (or question) which references these key elements.
A database where data and the relations between them are arranged in tables. WebSphere Portal Server can use a relational database, such as DB2, to store portal-specific data.
A system that manages data in tables that are connected to each other by keys whose values can uniquely identify a record in a table. Related term: DBMS.
A database management system with the ability to access data organized in tabular files that can be related to each other by a common field. An RDBMS can recombine the data items from different files, providing powerful tools for data usage. RDBMS services include validation rules, relationships, and topological associations.
A subset of DBMS which manages a database comprised of related two dimensional tables.
(RDBMS): As opposed to a flat-file database, in which data is stored in a flat grid, a relational database allows multiple grids or tables to "relate" to each other. Data contained in a number of data grids can be shared, wherever data fields match. Data entered once are uniformly available. For example, if nutrients are in one table, and food costs are in another, a user may query the database program to identify foods high in a given nutrient but low in cost.
Database technology that was designed to support high volume transaction processing (OLTP) and is typically the foundation for a data warehouse.
The relational database model utilizes a containment hierarchy, i.e. a relational database contains catalogs, each catalog contains schemas, schemas contain tables, tables contain columns and rows. Relational databases don’t "think" in terms ofrecords and so "records" are created dynamically thisallows attributes to be added relatively easily and newtables to be linked based on keys. Great for distributeddata entry such as the databases used to maintain ouruniversity records. [So that’s how admissions always knowsabout my library fines:)
A data storage mechanism characterised by the use of normalised tables of data which can be freely related (or "joined") to give many different perspectives on the data, and thus great flexibility.
A system that organises data into related rows and columns. SQL Server is a relational database management system (RDBMS).
A computer program designed to store and retrieve shared data. In a relational system, data is stored in tables consisting of one or more rows, each containing the same set of columns. Oracle Database is an object-relational database management system. Other types of database systems are called hierarchical or network database systems.
A relational database, or relational database management system, is a database where information is organized in tables. Information in one table can be linked to another table through a field they have in common. For instance, a database might have one table that stores contact information about clients, and another table that stores information about services provided to clients. The two tables would be related so that a user could find out the addresses of all clients who used a certain service. Relational databases are easier to extend than flat-file databases, since it is possible to add a table that stores a new type of information without changing the rest of the database. The standard interface for relational databases is SQL, or Structured Query Language. Microsoft Access is relational, and recent versions of Filemaker have relational capabilities.

A collection of hardware and software that organizes and provides access to a relational database.
A database management system in which data can be viewed and manipulated in tabular form. Data can be sorted in any order and tables of information are easily related or joined to each other.
(RDBMS) A relational database management system is a database system that stores information in tables that are related to each other.
a database management system that organizes and accesses data according to relationships between data items. dBASE IV is a relational database management system.
A relational database management system is a type of database management system that stores data in related tables. New types of data can more easily be added, and the user can view the data in multiple ways.
A computer program for storing and manipulating data which has been structured to a form a relational database.
A Database management system based on the relational model. It allows the definition of data structures, storage and retrieval operations, and integrity constraints. In such a database, the data and relations between them are organized in tables. Microsoft SQL Server is a well-known example.
A software system and data storage facility that organizes and manages a relational database.
A relational database management system (RDBMS) is a database management system (DBMS) that is based on the relational model as introduced by Edgar F. Codd. Relational databases are the most common kind of database in use today (assuming one does not count a file system as a database).
