DBM 380 Week 1 Individual: Database Design Paper

DBM 380 Week 1 Individual: Database Design Paper

Write a 500-to-700-word paper in which you do the following:
• Explain what database systems are and how they are used.
• Define "database architecture." This term could potentially have multiple definitions, so pick one that makes sense to you based on your research and readings. Consider Microsoft Access , Microsoft SQL Server , Oracle , and IBM DB2 software as examples you could use to help explain your definition of database architecture.
• Describe one significant database system in your workplace by covering its purpose (why it exists), function (what it does), and architecture (using your definition from the previous part of the paper). If you do not have a workplace or do not have any database system in your workplace, then briefly describe some workplace (perhaps a store or business you frequent) and a database you believe would be in use there.
Include 2 to 4 references.
Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
