Data, Information & Knowledge. A Distinction.

January 4, 2011

Heres a quick post to start the year.  The difference between the above three words became apparent this evening.

 

Data are records on file.

Information is the representation of data into an interpretable format.

Knowledge is productive application of information.

 

It all makes sense now.
