A set or collection of interrelated data stored and managed for a particular project. A data base can be stored in machine readable form (on magnetic tape, disk or optical disk) or it can be on paper (as in a book). The same as a data bank except that the data is for a specific project. Data base can also mean a collection of information or material (in digital or analogue form) such as an archive or library.
all of the data necessary to meet the information requirements of an enterprise, regardless of where used or how stored. A DBMS is not a prerequisite for data base. A common misconception is that an organization's data base is only that data stored on direct access devices by the computer. Actually, the data base may reside in many physical forms (e.g., tape, microfiche, disk, paper, cards, etc.). By this definition, all enterprises have a data base. The where and how of storage is dictated by the time requirements for information. Because information needs vary over time and as a result of changing conditions, the data base should be readily expandable. This base should be both hardware, software and application independent. An integrated data base environment is one in which the various parts of the data base are available for shared use and coordination within the environment.
