BI and the “Unstructured Data” Challenge
Text analytics is good for…
Creating machine-exploitable models in/of information stores that were previously resistant to machine understanding,
Exploiting discovered or predefined structures to detect patterns: categories, linkages, etc.,
Applying the derived patterns to classify and support other automated processing according to document-extracted concepts and to establish relationships, and
Boosting traditional BI to create unified, 360o analytics.
