Differences between data and information are an important part for any information system. It helps to implement and manage the information system of an organization. The basic differences between data and information are given below:

The information has a value in decision making while data does not have.
Information brings clarity and creates an intelligent human response in the mind.
Data is like raw materials while the information is equivalent to the finished goods produced after processing the raw material.

(Here every individual word is data and all together is information.)
