Unlocking the Value of Unstructured Data

New Technology Can Make Your Organization More Efficient

by Rick Sabarese | 01.05.16

Mining insights from the endless stream of unstructured data your organization has access to—from email to blogs to social media—begins with a foundation for collecting, integrating, and organizing the data. Today’s enterprises have plenty of unstructured data floating around, but making sense of it is a major challenge.
