About the Presentation
What is “unstructured data,” and how does it differ from “structured data?” And what really is “semi-structured data?” How do I know which kind I have, and what kinds of technologies can I use to manage it?
In this non-technical presentation you will discover:
Content Delivery, Access and Visualization
Querying, Analyzing and Processing
Integrating with BI and other reporting systems
You will end the session with the knowledge of how to identify which kind of data you are dealing with; which techniques and platform components you can choose to manage your data; and the typical business requirements that will help you make the right management choices.
