Nearly everyone says that Data and Information are the same but that’s not the case.
Data is the raw material required to form Information i.e. to construct a Building we need raw material as Cement, Bricks, Sand, iron rods and bars etc. and this raw material is processed to form a building.
According to above example, Data behaves as raw material consisting of Alphabets, Numbers(0-9), Special characters, etc. and after processing this we get Information in form of words, sentences, mathematical problems, etc. Data which is in meaningful form.
