Ans. DataBase Management System

A Database management system is a computerized record-keeping system. It is a repository or a container for collection of computerized data files. The overall purpose of DBMS is to allow he users to define, store, retrieve and update the information contained in the database on demand. Information can be anything that is of significance to an individual or organization.

All the possible applications of a Database Management System in any IGNOU'S Regional Center :-
(i)        Database is used to store students details in a place
We know Database is used for storing Data and Information.In IGNOU'S Regional Center all data and Information  related to student , staff and employees are stored from where we can access data and Information , update and also Delete the Data and Information.
(ii)        Easy Query processing and management
            From DBMS we can easily generate Query and we can easily manage it. And we can easily our database.
(iii)        Easy to understand and user friendly
The language we use in DBMS is easily understandable. Query Statements like SELECT, DELETE & UPDATE is very easy for users.Because we use a  simple english words or Statements.
(iv)           Store Students marks evaluation details
We easily get our Evaluatiom marks details that is stored in DBMS of Regional Center applications that is easily available for Enrolled Students.
(v)        Store Employee details.
If we want to Know the details about the any of the  Employee then we can easily get from the DBMS that is already stored in DBMS .To know which Employee is responsible for the which work that is assigned by Administrator. 
(vi)      Store final year project Submission.
In IGNOU programmed application the students have to create Project on any topics and the project is Submitted by Students in Regional Center.If student want to see the details of submitted project , they get from there.
(vii)     Easy to implement Security and integrity of data
DBMS has four methods to maintain data integrity: normalizing data, defining business rules, providing referential integrity and data validation. Data normalization is a process where unnecessary dependencies and repeating groups of data are eliminated. Business rules for data access control data handling and sharing between applications. Referential integrity is used to protect data from corruption. Data validation uses multiple processes to validate data in the application.
(viii)    Fast access of information
In DBMS, all data of an organization is integrated into a single database file. The data is recorded in only one place in the database and it is not duplicated.Thorough which we can access of Information fast
(ix)      Data sharing in other department of IGNOU.
In DBMS, data can be shared by authorized users of the organization. The database administrator manages the data and gives rights to users to access the data. Many users can be authorized to
access the same piece of information simultaneously. The remote users can also share same data. Similarly, the data of same database can be shared between different application programs.
(x)       Better data accuracy
By controlling the data redundancy, the data consistency is obtained. If a data item appears only once, any update to its value has to be performed only once and the updated value is immediately available to all users. If the DBMS has controlled redundancy, the database system enforces consistency and accurate.
