Definitions of INTELLIGENT DATABASE
Sort: Oldest first
A database management system which performs datavalidation and processing traditionally done by applicationprograms. Most DBMSs provide some data validation,e.g. rejecting invalid dates or alphabetic data entered intomoney fields, but often most processing is done by applicationprograms. There is however no limit to the amount ofprocessing that can be done by an intelligent database as longas the process is a standard function for that data.Examples of techniques used to implement intelligent databasesare constraints, triggers and stored procedures.Moving processing to the database aids data integritybecause it is guaranteed to be consistent across all uses ofthe data. Mainframe databases have increasingly become moreintelligent and personal computer database systems are rapidlyfollowing.
