2nd to respond to:) This week we have been given instructions to discuss the three most important functions of DBMS. Based off of the book the three most important functions out of the nine: Security services provided by the software, data recovery and lastly, data integrity of course. DBMS is something we have learned in the past, but a refresher is important. DBMS analyzes and captures data within a database by interacting with the system or user. Based off that description of DBMS it is safe assumption that the number one function out of the main three that I have chosen is data integrity because every good database needs data integrity that is what provides accurate and up to date information, without it the database would be useless. The second important function that I picked was security utilized for DBMS. Security services are very essential when it comes to databases, it allows the encryption of data which converts data into a different style which doesn’t allow programs not authorized by the database to view them. This is what makes it so essential to any valuable database. The last function I had picked was data recovery, which is important in every single type of system not only databases. This comes into play when data within the database has been corrupted or some unexpected catastrophe occurred while working on your database. It allows you to retrieve data based on the users saving It or backing it up, which is a great practice for any professional. Out of all the functions, picking one to get rid of is extremely hard to decide because I believe they are all important, but I believe I would chose data replication because it would not be important in my situation because I do not need to have data on multiple databases, which allows users to access it across those platforms.
