    Trsnsaction Processing Systems (TPS) record and process data resulting from business transactions (sales,purchases,inventory changes) TPS also produce a variety of information products for internal & external use. Eg. ATM (customer statements,employee paychecks & sales receipts)

    Two basic ways:

    Batch processing - transaction data is accumulated over a period of time and processed periodically e.g. 八達通

    Real time (or online) processing - data is processed immediately after a transaction occurs. e.g. ATM
