Database Documentation is Essential for Business

database documentation

Database documentation plays a vital role in data management. However, in a digital world, organizations rely heavily on an assortment of data to function. Knowing how to effectively manage a high volume of information makes it easier to oversee business operations. However, often organizations do not consistently maintain their databases. Therefore, they have issues storing, searching, and retrieving valuable data when they need information. That is where database documentation comes into place. 

What is Database Documentation?

Additionally, database documents are descriptions of metadata–your organization’s metadata. It is necessary to store, retrieve, revise, and manage a company’s database since it may contain different kinds of information.   However, depending on your business data, it may include anything from product inventory, customer information, sales, and more. With the right database documentation tools, you can store data in JSON, XML, or BSON. This makes it easier to change the database structure as the organization changes and grows.
