The author reviews their present understanding of a collection of bosons on a lattice. The bosons interact with each other and may have random site energies. Superfluid, Mott insulating and glassy phases are possible at T=0. The relevance of these results to experimental systems such as $He^4$, disordered superconductors, and Josephson junction arrays, is discussed. Analytical and numerical results, as well as open questions are pointed out
