What is an infotype?

What exactly is an infotype? Why are infotypes only required in HR?


An infotype is a collection of logical and/or business-related characteristics of an object or person. I don't know exactly how to answer the second question but it is safe to say that items such as materials have similar structures that act like infotypes. The one outstanding difference that I really see is the concept of time constraints that infotypes use for interpreting data during a specified period.
