What is a Site Collection? - SharePoint & Office 365 Sites

According to MSDN, “A site collection is made up of one top-level site and all sites below it”.  In SharePoint we can have different sites for different purposes, when we put all of our related sites together we call it a site collection.
Suppose that we have a site collection for the different departments in a company. While there is a different site for each department, multiple departments can use same site. Departments can have the information related only to themselves on their sites and collaborate where more than one department is provisioned to work.
This is just one example of a way that you can use Sites to help your business. You can also have different sites for different processes i.e. purchase request, Time sheets etc.
