Apple Filemaker

Filemaker is a relational database application developed by Filemaker Inc., a company of Apple. A relational database is a digital database which is organised into tables of rows and columns. Filemaker itself is more difficult to explain because the programs that come with it aren't made to do a specific thing. Overall one could say that companies can use Filemaker as a solution to problems. For example one could use Filemaker to create a attendance list in an office or use it as an encrypted messaging system for classified information.
