Managing a lot of information right now has changed considerably over the past years. The use of computers has made it more possible for people to share and also manage information. The database management system can be used when people need to share some data with a select number of users.

This means that the data will not be available to other people. The electronic spreadsheet is a bit more public. , and it is not as private as the database management system. Both can be customized to suit the needs of the users.
