Concurrency

You might have heard of the term concurrency as it relates to databases. It refers to the logic and behavior of database systems when two (or more) users attempt to interact with the same information. A simple metaphor might be two people trying to use a phone book or dictionary at once. Every multi-user database platform has to address this issue.

Certainly it'd be easiest to simply restrict using the database to one user or function at a time, but clearly that's an unrealistic solution.
