Not long ago, most data was generated by systems and stored in databases as structured data. That data had steady, predictable growth and the only people interested in that data were IT and financial staff, who had the skills to work directly with the databases. Today, however, most content is created outside of databases and in a wide variety of formats. Some are structured but many are unstructured — documents, photos, videos. Add social and sensor data, and the growth rate becomes exponential.
You know that there is a great deal of value in your data. But you also know you need to do things differently to enable your organization to reap business value from its data. What if you could:
- unlock the value of your data repositories by making accurate data readily accessible to your business community?
- easily integrate data from multiple sources to make it available and useful to your organization?
- efficiently prepare and profile your data to ensure trust in its accuracy and integrity?
Read this white paper to understand how to ignore the hype, focus on your business objectives and achieve your data preparation goals.
