The issues surrounding management of relational data are well identified, if not completely understood, but have you considered the other 80% of data that exists in your enterprise?

What about unstructured and machine-generated information?

How can these be leveraged to provide additional insights into often intractable business problems?

One complication for data management professionals is that non-relational sources can be as clear as mud.

This session investigates the application of master data and related metadata to find additional relevance and context provided by unstructured and machine-generated information for targeted analysis or process improvements.

We will examine how these three types of data can be combined to derive business insights beyond those available when you limit your scope to relational data. We will then demonstrate how these insights can be visualized for additional clarity, so you can strike it rich with information gold.
