What is Data Abstraction?

Data Abstraction is the process by which the conceptual ideas of a thought becomes the objects that helps to define what information will ultimately be gathered. These objects or "things" are seen as a whole without the finer details. Less emphasis is placed on the descriptive attributes of the object but more so on the noun/pronoun.

Why Step 1?

This is Step 1 from AbstraSoft's percpective because the delivered software's goal is to either capture data or deliver data. Abstraction helps indentify what the "data" is.
