BI and the “Unstructured Data” Challenge

8

The “Unstructured Data” Challenge

“The bulk of information value is perceived as coming from data in relational tables. The reason is that data that is structured is easy to mine and analyze.”

  • Prabhakar Raghavan, Yahoo Research, former CTO of enterprise-

search vendor Verity (now part of Autonomy)

Yet 80% of enterprise information is in “unstructured” form (IDC, others). The value equation is out of balance: it reflects actuality rather than potential.
