How to Handle Unstructured Data Entering Your Organization

What good is data if you can’t analyze it?

Unstructured data entering your organization may not be utilized to its fullest. Missing data, misplaced data and manual steps to process said data creates a silo of less-than-usable information that your team could be recruiting to make critical decisions for your business.

Let’s work on transforming how your company handles incoming data – structured, semi-structured and unstructured alike.


Unstructured Data is Common

Human-generated unstructured data enter your workflows in the forms of text files, email attachments, spreadsheets, social media data, text messages, and media files as examples.

Machine-generated unstructured data can enter as scientific data like weather and atmospheric information, surveillance media, and land data from surveys to name a few.

While you can’t exactly control all of the data entering your organization, you can prepare for the regularly incoming unstructured data.
