The operational database management system (DBMS) market is concerned with relational and nonrelational database management products suitable for a broad range of enterprise-level transactional applications. These include purchased business applications, such as those for ERP, CRM, catalog management and security event management, and custom transactional systems built by organizations' own development teams. Gartner defines a DBMS as a complete software system used to define, create, manage, update and query a database. A database is an organized collection of data that may be in multiple formats and may be stored in some form of storage medium (which may include hard-disk drives, flash memory, solid-state drives and/or DRAM). Additionally, according to Gartner's definition, DBMSs provide interfaces to independent programs and tools that both support, and govern the performance of, a variety of concurrent workload types.
