Collection

n.

Pronunciation

/kəˈlɛkʃən/

Definition

The act of assembling data from disparate sources, often into a single repository of master data in the case of PIM.

Collection can involve the importing of information of differing formats and types to a database. In these cases an effective PIM system generally has the ability to import, map, and normalize the various data types and formats so the information can be manipulated uniformly regardless of origin.
