"A Database Management System (DBMS) is described as a
set of computer programs that manages the creation, maintenance,
and administration of a database. It is a system software package
that supports the use of unified collection of data records and
files known as databases. A DBMS could utilize any of a variety of
database models, such as the network model or relational model.
"A relational database management system (RDBMS) is a DBMS in
which data is stored in the form of tables, and the relationship
among the data is stored in the form of tables as well. Nowadays,
majority of popular commercial and open-source databases are based
on the relational database model."
