Data processing occurs when data is collected and translated into usable information. Usually performed by a data scientist or team of data scientists, it is important for data processing to be done correctly as not to negatively affect the end product, or data output.
The future of data processing lies in the cloud. Cloud technology builds on the convenience of current electronic data processing methods and accelerates its speed and effectiveness. Faster, higher-quality data means more data for each organization to utilize and more valuable insights to extract.
