Full form of DP

Full form of DP

This tutorial will briefly cover about the various full forms of DM, i.e., Display Picture, Data Processing, Display Port, including the meaning of the term, overviews, processes and other detailed information.

(i) DP: Display Picture

The abbreviation DP stands for Display Picture.

What does DP or Display Picture means?

“DP or Display Picture is a term used to refer a highlighted picture of any person to present his/her visual identification on social media or other online chat platforms. Very often, DP is also called as profile picture.”

Display Picture is what your followers or internet users see on their screen of any electronic device (smartwatch, computer, desktop, tablet, smartphone, etc.). DP creates a visual identification on social media platforms; sometimes, people identify you through your DP. It is an effective association tool used by various businesses and organizations to create a rapport for their social media followers. Thus, businesses need to select the right DP image.

(ii) DP: Data Processing

Another full form for the abbreviation DP is Data Processing.

What is meant by Data Processing?

DP or Data Processing is a technical method commonly used to organize, collect, and manipulate vast amounts of numeric data to generate meaningful information. DP is also considered a subset of information processing, as it is used to conduct, analyze, calculate, process and store valuable information.

Data Processing includes computer systems, software for converting raw data to meaningful information. Generally, corporations use this technology for implementing a wide range of business operations and collect all sorts of different data by processing raw information. Further, the outcome or the result of the Data Processing is represented to the authorities with the help of diagrams, flowcharts, dashboards, reports and graphics etc. There are plenty of data processing software’s available in the market to collect, manipulate and translate information into usable data. Some of the commonly used software are Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel etc.

Data Processing Functions

The processes supported by Data processing are as follows:

  1. Validation: This method assures that provided data and information is accurate, correct, clear and valuable.
  2. Sorting: This process arranges and sorts the specified data in some sequence, i.e., ascending or descending.
  3. Summarization: This process reduces the detailed data to its top features and eliminates the other data.
  4. Aggregation: This process is used to merge various pieces of information.
  5. Analysis: This process is used to perform statistical calculations with the help of highly accurate and reliable algorithms.
  6. Classification: This process is used to classify the given data into different categories.

Applications of Data Processing

The common applications of data processing technology are as follows:

  1. Commercial data processing: Data processing is widely used for commercial cooperates, which deals with huge amounts of input data, several computational processes, and huge output. For example, a healthcare firm needs to maintain records of its millions of customers' day-to-day medical activities, policies, hospital bills, and treatments expense.
  2. Data analysis: Data analysis uses special algorithms and statistical computations to analyze the quality of the data. Several paid and free software applications are available in the market, like SPSS or SAS, or their free equivalents such as PSPP, DAP, or gretl.

Future of Data Processing

Cloud data is the expected future of Data Processing.  Cloud technology works on the utility of current programmed information processing techniques and is known for its impeccable speed and productivity.

(iii) DP: Display Port

The third full form of the abbreviation DP is Display Port.

What is Display Port?

DisplayPort or DP is a digital display interface introduced by a consortium of PC and chip manufacturers to transfer audio and video over a single cable. This port can connect monitors with graphic cards or different data sources to display the video.”

Display Port was standardized by the VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association). This interface can carry audio, USB, and other forms of data.
