Introduction to Database Design

Databases are one of the most important area in Information Communication and Technology. They help you to organise information to make it easy to arrange, find, and evaluate in a number of different ways. You're all familiar with the Contacts application on your mobile, Google search or the Yellow Pages, dictionary book, recipes folder, filing systems. These are all databases, you can classify them as non-computerise or computerised databases.

If you were asked to find the address details of a particular telephone no. from the Yellow Pages book you would have a big job on your hands. Database can be managed electronically with an application such as MS Access, Filemaker Pro, or online database Zoho DB which is known as Database Management software.
