    \begin{itemize}
      \item multiple users, \emph{concurrent access}
        \begin{itemize}
          \item transactions with ACID properties

  \begin{block}{}
    A \emph{transaction} is a collection of operations that
    performs a single logical function in a database application.

  \begin{block}{Database management system ensures \emph{ACID properties}}
    \begin{itemize}
  \pause
      \item \emph{Atomicity:} transaction executes fully (commit) or not at all (abort)
  \pause
      \item \emph{Consistency:} database remains in a consistent state where all 
        integrity constraints hold
  \pause
      \item \emph{Isolation:} multiple users can modify the database at the same time
        but will not see each others partial actions
  \pause
      \item \emph{Durability:} once a transaction is committed successfully,
        the modified data is persistent, regardless of disk crashes
    \end{itemize}
