  • In computer science, data (pronounced /ˈdeɪtə/day-tə, /ˈdætə/) is information in a form suitable for use with a computer.

  • Data is often distinguished from programs.

  • A program is a sequence of instructions that detail a task for the computer to perform. In this sense, data is thus everything that is not program code.
