We need to organise this data so that we can understand it; then it can become useful. Key Point A database is a persistent store of related data that is organised in such a way as to make it useful. 129

Databases are not temporary deposits of information they are persistent or permanent collections; as such they are stored in computer systems on persistent or permanent storage (HDDs or SSDs) rather than volatile memory.
