data processing A term that refers to the activities performed with a database, including various types of interactions and events.
batch processing A setup where data processing occurs at a scheduled time, or at a critical point in a process, saving redundant effort by updating data all at once, rather than continuously.
transactional processing A setup where the database updates immediately for each input.
real-time system A system setup that performs critical functions that require data with second-by-second accuracy—for example, a factory automation system or an air traffic control system.
online transactional processing (OLTP) A system used for e-commerce transactions, providing fast, always-on processing. OLTP systems offer the benefit of being in business 24 hours a day because customers expect rapid order processing.
