Thanks everyone for the replies.
A few examples are:[FONT="]The staging begins with coordinated extracts from the operational systems; the raw data is transformed into presentable information in staging area to fit business needs and is finally loaded into the data warehouse in the presentation area.I am talking about data as a collection of all the information stored in diverse systems.
[/FONT][FONT="]The presentation area is where the data is organized, stored and made available for direct querying by users; report writers and other analytical applications.
[/FONT][FONT="]Data in conventional operational systems is entered either automatically or by a clerk. [/FONT]
All of these usages look absolutely fine to me.
