Data Management: Functions, Storage, Security and More

Data management is a total lifecycle information system that follows data from the moment it is created until it ceases to be useful. It is used both in transaction processing systems that create operational data, such as customer records and sales orders, and in data warehouses, which store consolidated data sets from business systems for business intelligence and analysis. The functions of data management include increasing knowledge of data across the organization; facilitating the implementation of best practices, in collaboration with governance representatives; reducing duplication of efforts by promoting best practices; and encouraging the adoption of processes, standards and data-related guidelines. Data transformation and presentation, data dictionary management is one of the most important functions of the database management system.

Managing data storage is also important for adjusting the performance of the system. Performance tuning refers to activities that make the database work more efficiently in terms of storage speed and access. Security management is another important function of the database management system (DBMS). The DBMS creates a security system that reinforces user security and data privacy.

Security rules determine which users can access the database, what data elements each user can access, and what data operations (read, add, delete, or modify) the user can perform. The DBMS promotes and enforces integrity rules, minimizing data redundancy and maximizing data consistency. The SQL query is based on specifying the values of the attributes and requires the user to know the names of the attributes that are used to describe the database that are stored in the database schema, while the query of the document assumes that the system knows the location of the document. In most organizations, the data management function generally originated digitally and was closely related to the design and implementation of data warehouses. In addition to these functions, other fundamental disciplines of data management include data modeling, which represents the relationships between data elements and the way in which data flows through systems; data integration, which combines data from different data sources for operational and analytical uses; data governance, which establishes policies and procedures ensure that data is consistent across the organization; and data quality management, which aims to correct data errors and inconsistencies.

If the data model is implemented using an OR-DBMS with document, spatial and image data management subsystems, only UDTs, Pcodes and age functions will require programmer-defined UDFs for processing. IFIPs (definition of information) have as long a history of development as structured administrative data management systems. A modern DBMS system provides storage not only for data but also for related data entry forms or screen definitions, report definitions, data validation rules, procedural code, structures for managing video and image formats etc. With Tableau Data Management Add-on you get a solution designed with multiple people in mind.
