  Data is a critical commodity in today’s business climate. Information can be presented in a variety of forms: structured, unstructured, and semi-structured. There is a global information revolution happening, with more data being produced than ever before and conventional database management methods unable to manage the massive amounts of information being produced by organizations from legal businesses, healthcare organizations, financial institutions, government businesses, etc. Most businesses are turning to Big Data analytics for database management in the current information revolution. The most responsible businesses currently use a theory in the underlying application of database management systems (DBMS). In this paper, we discuss DBMS, the theories underlying the DBMS, and Information Flow Theory, a common theory used to support and brace DBMS.
