Data, information and knowledge are three closely related but different concepts cepts. The following are the definitions abstracted from Webster’s dictionary:
  • Data: 1. factual information (as measurements or statistics) used as a basis for reasoning, discussion, or calculation 2. information output by a sensing device or organ that includes both useful and irrelevant or redundant information and must be processed to be meaningful 3. information in numerical form that can be digitally transmitted or processed.

  • Information: 1. the communication or reception of knowledge or intelligence 2. knowledge obtained from investigation, study, or instruction.

  • Knowledge: 1. the fact or condition of knowing something with familiarity gained through experience or association 2. acquaintance with or understanding of a science, art, or technique 3. the fact or condition of being aware of something.
