Difference between Data and Information

Difference between Data and InformationDifference between Data and Information- In the world of Technology Data is the most commonly used term. The term Data and Information seems to be similar and mostly used in our daily technical use. The meaning of both these terms depends on the phrase of words through which we are explaining it.

Technically there is major difference between these two extensively used terms.

Data is the lowest form of bit. We can say that, Data is the roughly collected data item like of unmodified Pictures, randomly collected Text or the untampered Bits.

Data with its meaning on its own is called Information. Like 90816700000 is just a number or data, but as we process it, it changes into some ones mobile number. I.e. it produces a meaningful output and hence can be treated as information. Information gives responses to people on a certain manner. Like we can say "I spend 30 minutes watching TV, it responds our state of habit.

Data keeps on changing as per our needs and requirement and hence it also keeps on changing Information.
