Does not need to be a technical person. Database Administrator: Puts into practice the data</p><p>policies of the organization, like back ups, recovery,</p><p>integrity, security, availability, performance and testing</p><p>support.</p><p> Applications Program Developer: Responsible over</p><p>development of the application programs that make use of</p><p>the data in the database.</p><p> User: Makes use of the information from the applications</p><p>that talk to the database.

The Hierarchical Model: Represents data and nodes</p><p>in a hierarchical manner.</p><p> The Deductive Model: Represents minimal data as'Axioms'. Extra data and relationships are deduced.</p><p> The Relational Model: Uses relations/table toorganize data. A row/tuple represents an instance ofdata and relationships are represented by foreignkeys.</p><p> The Object Oriented Model: Uses the objectoriented paradigm of encapsulation, inheritance andpolymorphism. A class represents data and an objectrepresents the instance.</p><p>20</p></li></ul>
