Knowing Database

Many of you have heard about database but do you actually know the meaning of database? what is database?how many type of databases? all this i will answer in my blog.. Ok first i will start by introducing what is databases.
DATABASE is  a collection of information that is organized so that it can easily be accessed, managed, and updated. In one view, databases can be classified according to types of content that is:

figure 1:bibliographic

  • bibliographic (a list of writings relating to a given subject)
  • full text
  • numeric
  • image
A database is a structured collection of records or data that is stored in a computer system.

 To be functional: i) Databases must not only store large amounts
                               of records well, but be accessed easily.
                            ii)New information and changes can be easily to
                            iii) All databases that are created should be built 
                               with high integrity and the ability to recover data if hardware fails.

Database Management System(DBMS) - program that manage the queries and information
                                                                                 stored on the system.
Now i will tell you about types of databases.There are many type of databases but i will discuss about the several type of databases in this blog.Each databases have its own model and uniqueness.
They include - Flat Model,
                    -  Hierarchical Model
                    - Relational Model
                    - Network Model

- There is a two dimensional (flat structure) array of data. 
-  A flat model database includes only zip codes. Within the database, there is only one column and
  each new row within that one column will be a new zip code.
figure 2: flat model database
 Hierarchical Model Database
resembles a tree like structure
 each upward link is nested in order to keep data organized in a
   particular order on a same level list.
- example like folder and files.

-A record is stored with a link to other records in effect networked

 most popular type of database and an extremely powerful tool, not 
    only to store information, but to access it as well.
 organized as tables.
Relational databases use a program interface called SQL (Standard Query Language). SQL is currently
  used on practically all relational databases
figure 3: the network model database
easy to customize to fit almost any kind of data storage.
Relations can easily be created for items for sale, employees in a company, etc

Thats all for the type of databases.for more understanding about relational type database i will provide a video that will can help you all to understand how the relational type database work.

Job growth will not be as rapid as during the previous decade. The information technology sector will begin to mature and routine work will increasingly be outsourced overseas.

many of us dont know what the suitable work when you learn database..
so here i give some info for you guys bout money you can get using your database knowladge
Database Administrators use database software to store and manage information. They will often set up database systems and are responsible for making sure those systems operate efficiently (usually referred to as database performance tuning). They also make sure that the data they store is backed up regularly, stored effectively, and that the data is secure from unauthorized access. Ensuring the data is available, by maximizing database uptime, is also an important function of the database administrator.

Education Needed for Database Administrators

Database Administrators often have a 4 year degree in Computer Science or Management Information Systems (MIS). Knowledge of business functions is also important, as is the ability to communicate with other employees in the company in both technical and non-technical roles.
Database administrators will also often hold a certification for a specific database software program. Oracle database certifications are very popular database certification programs, high in demand with employers. Another popular certification is for the Microsoft Certified Database Administrator or MCDBA. The MCDBA is also one of the highest paying technical certifications.

Becoming a Database Administrator

The best way to become a DBA is to take the relevant classes and familiarize yourself with the specific, popular databases that are in demand. Becoming certified in a specific database program is a good way to show your skill level. Internships are often a great start to a Database Administrator career. Other technical support roles, such as System Administrators and Network Administrators, may easily transition into a Database Administration role by becoming certified as a Database Administrator.

Database Administrator Career Path

Database administrators often promote to a senior database administrator and then into a strategic management role within the company, such as a MIS Manager and eventually even on to a Chief Technology Officer role. Some DBAs specialize in a certain area, such as database security, and become experts in that particular area.
