Marco Henry BUS 330 – Info MGMT Chapter 6 Discussion Qs 03/30/17 CHAPTER 6 DISCUSSION QUESTIONS .           It has been said that you do not need database management software to  create a database environment. Discuss. Just because you see the word “data”, does not necessarily mean it must be in electronic form. A database is essentially a way for a company to collect information in metric form, and then organize the information to service a wide variety of applications in a business. It is not required that a company store their data in a DBMS and in fact, there are certain industries (like hospitals) that still prefer to keep a majority of their data in written or physical form for security reasons. DBMS is a tool that can make it more convenient to manage and store data, but it is not the only way. However, by using DBMS you can reduce program-data dependence along with program development and maintenance costs.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
