A database system

Basically, it is nothing more than a computer record keeping system: this is, a system whose overall purpose is to record and maintain information. The information concerned can be anything that is deemed to be of significance to the organization the system is serving – anything, in other words, that may be necessary to the decision-making processes involved in the management of that organisation.
