Definition: Real time is a level of computer responsiveness that a user senses as sufficiently immediate or that enables the computer to keep up with some external process (for example, to present visualizations of the weather as it constantly changes). Real-time is an adjective pertaining to computers or processes that operate in real time.

What This Means: Real time describes a human rather than a machine sense of time. When an application performs its work in real time, it is keeping its database up to date as each transaction or entry is made. Real time is important for applications that must provide immediate reports or when data entered into one application must be shared instantaneously with other applications.
