Object Database Management System (ODBMS)

A database management system specifically designed to manage and store complex objects and their complex relationships; that is, such items are stored as objects rather than as tables or fields. They support modeling and creation of data as objects, allowing for greater flexibility in tracking parent method sets and subcomponents. Such systems may be better than relational database management systems at meeting the data integrity requirements of CFR 21 Part 11.
