Best Practices for Managing Unstructured Data
November 12, 2021
Unstructured data accounts for a vast and rapidly growing amount of information.
However, unstructured data poses a number of challenges for organizations attempting to extract value from it using legacy data management tools. It is not easy to search, analyze, or query—especially on the fly. Its complexity creates processing problems for extracting analytical insights. Poor visibility and control create other issues with regard to governance and data security.
A modern data management platform that can effectively incorporate unstructured data (along with structured and semistructured files) offers valuable advantages such as more complete data analysis and better insights for decision-making. An effective solution must include three core capabilities: It should eliminate data silos, provide fast and flexible data processing, and ensure easy, secure access.
