In the commercial world, data processing refers to the processing of data re#uired to run organi$ations and businesses. %. Define Data Processing &ystem " data processing system ta'es raw data and, through the power of computer automation, produces information that a set of program applications has validated.

Duplicating /his data processing pertains to the replication of records into numerous copies or files. 4. lassifying Data classification is the categori$ation of data for its most effective and efficient use. In a basic approach to storing computer data, data can be classified according to its critical value or how often it needs to be accessed, with the most critical or often-used data stored on the fastest media while other data can be stored on slower +and less e(pensive, media.

5. &orting /his data processing pertains to assembling or regrouping data in a preset order, such as an alphabetic or numeric arrangement. 6. alculating alculating is the method of applying arithmetic operations on data. 7. &ummari$ing 8 -eporting /his type of data processing wraps up a compilation of facts and provides conclusions that correspond to the significance of the data presented. 9. .erging .erging is to combine two files in such a way that the resulting file has the same organi$ation as the two individual files. :or e(ample, if two files contain a list of names in alphabetical order, merging the two files results in one large file with all the names still in alphabetical order. ;. &toring /o copy data from a P! to memory, or from memory to a mass storage device. 1<. -etrieving Data retrieval is e(tracting files or information from a database. 11. :eedbac' It is the process in which the effect or output of an action is 0returned= to modify the ne(t action. :eedbac' is utili$ed to ma'e necessary ad3ustments to the input and processing stages of the information system.
