We live in an information-rich society; thus our society relies on the availability of a huge amount of information:

- everywhere

- and at any time.

Information means data.


These data then manipulated by computer science to produce what we call as database.


These systems are virtually everywhere, from such as:

- cell phone to TV

- vending machine in train station

- barcode scanners in super-market.

As suggested by AJ Graham (2016: How Are Databases Used in the Real World?) that using of database is date back in 1960s.

It is because many companies believed that use of computers became a more cost-effective option.


However, database models not that many on that time, few of them are a network model called CODASYL and a hierarchical model called IMS.


In CODASYL, data are organized into record and set at different types. Both record and set have names.


IMS model makes people organize data (business data) using program and device independently.
