Role of a Database Server

Earlier, organizations used to store the data on paper. With an increase in the usage of computers, they began building and using business applications to support the business operations.

The business applications accept data/information as input, process the data based on business requirements and provide data/information as output. For example, an application that maintains the sales details for an organization, accepts the details of the sales transaction from the users. The data is saved and an output message will display confirming that the data has been saved.

For example, the Human Resource department of an organization uses an application to manage employee’s data. The users need to add the details of new employees. The application provides an interface to enter the employee details. These details are validated for accuracy based on business rules. A business rule is defined to check that the date of joining of the new employee is less than or equal to the current date. If the data meets the requirements, it is saved in the data store.
