DBMS stands for Database Management System which is a general term for a set of software dedicated to controlling the storage of data.

RDMBS stand for Relational DataBase Management System. This is the most common form of DBMS. Invented by E.F. Codd, the only way to view the data is as a set of tables. Because there can be relationships between the tables, people often assume that is what the word "relational" means. Not so. Codd was a mathematician and the word "relational" is a mathematical term from the science of set theory. It means, roughly, "based on tables".

specific application for accessing the information that is
3)DBMS does not impose any constraints or security with
regard to data manipulation. It is user or the programmer
responsibility to ensure the ACID PROPERTY of the database
4)In DBMS Normalization process will not be present

RDBMS: Relational Data Base Management System

acquire information retrieval
Eg: oracle, SQL..,

represented in the form of relations, with enforced
relationships between the tables.
2)RDBMS defines the integrity constraint for the purpose of
3)In RDBMS, normalization process will be present to check
the database table cosistency
4)RDBMS helps in recovery of the database in case of loss of
database due to system failure or any other reason
