Below are the advantages of using a database system:
1. Redundancy of data means some information may be duplicated in several places in file processing s/y. This can also be refined through DBMS.
2. Accessing of data is difficult in file processing s/y.To access the different data we require different programs, many times. In other words, for different type applications require different application programs.
3. Multiple users can access the same data in DBMS. Security is also provided by DBA (Database administrator).
What is the advantage of file system and database system?
File system allows heterogeneous operating system such as Windows or Linux. It also allows users of different databases to access a certain resource in a synchronized form. It gives access to uniform data, to group of users thus saving time. It enables sharing of casual applications for many users, thus reducing the storage disk cost.
Database system on the other hand, improves your data security with greater data integrity. Database system also facilitates the development of a new program installed which lessens data redundancy. It also reduces updating errors on your data and improves data access to data users through a single host.
