Database Model

Definition - What does Database Model mean?

A database model refers to the logical structure, representation or layout of a database and how the data will be stored, managed and processed within it. It helps in designing a database and serves as blueprint for application developers and database administrators in creating a database.

Techopedia explains Database Model

A database model is primarily a type of data model. Depending on the model in use, a database model can include entities, their relationships, data flow, tables and more. For example, within a hierarchal database mode, the data model organizes data in the form of a tree-like structure having parent and child segments.

Some of the popular database models include relational models, hierarchical models, flat file models, object oriented models, entity relationship models and network models.
