Types[edit]Contrasted with batch processing

Batch processing is not transaction processing. Batch processing involves processing several transactions at the same time, and the results of each transaction are not immediately available when the transaction is being entered;[1]there is a time delay. Transactions are accumulated for a certain period (say for day) where updates are made especially after work.

[edit]Real-time and batch processing

There are a number of differences between real-time and batch processing. These are outlined below:

Each transaction in real-time processing is unique. It is not part of a group of transactions, even though those transactions are processed in the same manner. Transactions in real-time processing are stand-alone both in the entry to the system and also in the handling of output.

Real-time processing requires the master file to be available more often for updating and reference than batch processing. The database is not accessible all of the time for batch processing.

Real-time processing has fewer errors than batch processing, as transaction data is validated and entered immediately. With batch processing, the data is organised and stored before the master file is updated. Errors can occur during these steps.

Infrequent errors may occur in real-time processing; however, they are often tolerated. It is not practical to shut down the system for infrequent errors.

More computer operators are required in real-time processing, as the operations are not centralised. It is more difficult to maintain a real-time processing system than a batch processing system.

An information has five main components. These are the hardware or physical components, the software or the programs that allow the processing of data, the data which is the information that is used and processed by the system, the users of the system and the networks that connect the system to other information systems.

The system facilitates delivery of all banking services at a single counter, that is, all customer needs are attended to at a single point of delivery. According to a bank release, the waiting time is considerably reduced for cash payment from about nine minutes to 2.5 minutes and transaction processing time from five minutes to 2.5 minutes. The resultant extra space has been used for improved customer service.

Information processing involves five phases: input, process, output, storage, and retrieval. Each of these phases and the devices associated with each are discussed below.
