data item :

... one piece or a bit of useful information; a datum as an item of data.

The Rolodex provides an example of data source—a file system for manually organizing and storing business cards. If you have non-electronic device that operates like a Rolodex, you know that you can retrieve an item of contact data from it by turing a knob and flipping up the card you want. A telephone number printed on the card is a bit of useful information analogous to a data item, for example, stored in the .network GRC database.

GRC stands for Global Registry of Contacts, a source of data about resource and service providers of interest to .network users as well as locations seeking economic development and various other resources such as this enterprise and economic development glossary you are using. The Network is organized for using search tools.

Data items can also be defined as the smallest named bits of information that convey something meaningful or condense lengthy descriptions into short useful segments—for example: Data items are data code or data fields in the structures of databases.
