real-time information system

real-time information system

A business computer system that responds to transactions by immediately updating the appropriate databases. Real-time information systems generate a response fast enough to prevent human operators from waiting very long. Decades ago, when computers were considerably slower than they are today, "real-time" was occasionally indicated in a request for proposal (RFP) for a business application to highlight fast response times. See transaction processing.
