Recorded Webinar: Managing unstructured data and extracting value

3 December 2020

Unstructured data offers untapped potential but the platforms, tools and technologies to support it are nascent, often deployed for a specific problem with little reuse of common technologies from application to application. What are the challenges of managing and analysing this data and what are the considerations when making investments in this area?

Data quality, consistency and security are crucial in today’s markets. Regulatory compliance and maximising business benefits are no longer optional. This webinar will explore use cases of managing unstructured data. Find out how to use cloud and machine learning tools to navigate the associated challenges; and how to maximise business benefits while maintaining regulatory compliance.

Listen to:

  • Explore unstructured data and its use cases
  • Examine challenges of integrating and analysing unstructured data; increasing use of machine learning in specific cases
  • Discuss managing and enriching unstructured data, how to tag unstructured data and use cognitive search tools for analysis and linking data from different sources
  • Understand the business benefits of harnessing unstructured data
