    The major difference between DBMS and File Processing System is that in file processing system there is many chances of data redundancy and data isolation it means that the same data can be saved more than once that reduce data integrity .and data is saved in separated areas.it creates many problems in searching the data about any person or thing.but in DBMS data can be saved at one place and in more accurate form in reduce data redundancy .It also allows the users to share the data with other persons.

    -> A file manageris used to store all relationship in directories in file syatem where as a data management starts the relationship in form of structural tabels. -> In file sys. transaction are not possible. In dbms various transaction like insert, delete , view, updating etc. are possible.

    Hello, The main difference between DBMS and file processing system are following: 1. data redundancy and inconsistency 2. difficulty in accessing data 3. data isolation 4. integrity problems 5. atomicity problems 6. concurrent-access anomalies 7. security problems Thank you.

    We know that dbms is a computer program which is responsible for all the creation and maintainance of the database informations . So in dbms we store datas in the database(tables). But in file processing system we store the datas in the files. There several reasonable differences between dbma and file processing system. DATA REDUNDANCY means duplication of same informations in several files which leads to DATA INCONSISTENCY means various copies of same data may no longer agree e.g. if we change any data in a file it can't reflects to the other files which contains the sane dats.It gives the ATOMICITY facilities that means if the system fails at any time then it restores to its previous consistent state. DBMS provides data security to the users means every users can't access all the database systems.

    DBMS and FILE PROCESSING SYSTEM ARE DIFFERENT FROM EACH OTHER THAT IS DBMS PROVIDE INVIROMENT WHERE ALL THE FILES ARE UPDATED WHEN WE UPDATE A SINGLE FILE AND AT OTHER END IN FILE PROCESSING SYSTEM IF WE WANT TO UPDATE ANY ADDRESS THEN ONLY THAT FILE IS UPDATED WHICH WE CAN UPDATED,SO THERE IS INCONSISTENCY SITUATION CREATED.THIS IS THE MAIN DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE TWO.

    Hello, DBMS(Data Base Management System) A Database Management System (DBMS) is a set of computer programs that controls the creation, maintenance, and the use of the database of an organization and its end users. It allows organizations to place control of organization-wide database development in the hands of database administrators (DBAs) and other specialists. DBMSes may use any of a variety of database models, such as the network model or relational model. In large systems, a DBMS allows users and other software to store and retrieve data in a structured way. It helps to specify the logical organization for a database and access and use the information within a database. It provides facilities for controlling data access, enforcing data integrity, managing concurrency controlled, restoring database. File Processing System. File processing system store data in separate computer files. File processing system is a system used to store and manage data that involves each department or area within an organization having its own set of files, often creating data redundancy and data isolation. File processing system store data in separate computer files Disadvantages of File Processing Systems include: 1. Program-Data Dependence. File descriptions are stored within each application program that accesses a given file. 2. Duplication of Data. Applications are developed independently in file processing systems leading to unplanned duplicate files. Duplication is wasteful as it requires additional storage space and changes in one file must be made manually in all files. This also results in loss of data integrity. It is also possible that the same data item may have different names in different files, or the same name may be used for different data items in different files. 3. Limited data sharing. Each application has its own private files with little opportunity to share data outside their own applications. A requested report may require data from several incompatible files in separate systems. 4. Lengthy Development Times. There is little opportunity to leverage previous development efforts. Each new application requires the developer to start from scratch by designing new file formats and descriptions 5. Excessive Program Maintenance. The preceding factors create a heavy program maintenance load. 6. Integrity Problem. The problem of integrity is the problem of ensuring that the data in the database is accentuate. These are some of the top File Processing Systems: RoboRealm 1.0 Numerology 369 1.0 rmtSHUTDOWN 2.0 FreeStyLisp Generic Unix2Dos 1.1 Word-It 1.0 Data Master 2000 10.6.0.107 Eym Barcode Reader OCX 2.4 Hope it helps
