Information is most useful when it is available at the time you need it. To accomplish this, information needs to be stored and organized. Since a business depends on information, keeping track of information is vital to its success.
Databases simply organize and store information. They are so common that you have already created many in your everyday life. For example, anyone who organizes bills by date, company name, category, priority or any combination of these features, has designed and used their own database. The databases systems that we want to help you create and manage are run on computers. Having been developed over decades, they are now very powerful.
Nowadays databases can do incredible things. For example, they are what help us to find what you are looking for through billions of web pages on the Internet. They capture and show our information on Facebook. They help us find products on Amazon. In fact, they serve so many useful purposes you can expect that any sophisticated electronic device is using a database. Here at Sartosoft we want you to learn how helpful they can be for you so you will develop and use them more.
