Define file processing system . In a file-oriented system, each department or area within an organization has its own set of files. On the other hand, a database is a centrally managed and controlled collection of data that can be accessed, retrieved, and used by multiple departments. Point out that although file processing systems still exist, most of today’s information systems are designed as databases. Overview of file processing, 305 LECTURE NOTES Explain how file processing still is used. The following is true of processing systems: They are efficient, because they do not require the additional processor time and memory space needed by preprogrammed database functions They are simple to create, especially when a data file is accessed by only one application They can be tailored tightly to specific application or business needs Discuss Figure 7-4. Describe three problems in a file processing environment:
