data processing
Last modified: Thursday, May 14, 1998 

(1) Refers to a class of programs that organize and manipulate data, usually large amounts of numeric data. Accounting programs are the prototypical examples of data processing applications. In contrast, word processors, which manipulate text rather than numbers, are not usually referred to as data processing applications.

(2) Same as Information Technology (IT), refers to all computing functions within an enterprise.
