What is a data base?

A database usually refers to a collection of related pieces of information stored electronically. Aside from the ability to store data, a database also provides a way for other computer programs to quickly retrieve and update desired pieces of data

The most common model for a database is a relational model. These databases are organized by fields, records, and tables. A field is a single piece of information; a record is one complete set of fields; and a table is a collection of records. With this simple model, just about any relationship between any collection of data can be represented.

What is the process?

The design process always begins with an interview with the client. From that interview we will be able to determine exactly what the client's needs are. From there we can design a database model that will fulfill all the client's requirements.
