Brandon Tucker February 20, 2010 MISM 3301 Questions RQ  #2, 4 Chapter 6 1.  What are the major capabilities of DBMS and why is a relational DBMS so  powerful? The main capabilities of the DBMS are inclusive of data definition which is  capable of specifying the structure of the content to the database; data  dictionary which is an automated manual file that stores definitions of data  elements; and finally data manipulation language that is used to add, change,  delete, and retrieve data in the specific DBMS. A relational database is the most popular type of DBMS today for PC’s and is  well known for larger computers and mainframes.  It is the main method for  organizing and maintaining data in information systems due mainly to the  flexibility and the ease.  The database represents data as two- dimensional  tables “relations”.  Each table combines data on an entity and its attributes.
