Data is powerful; we know that. Yet not many people are aware of how much power they have at their fingertips in the information of today. Image & Data Manager brought this interesting information to us in their article, “Thing Vs. String: Is Your Data Personable?

With semantic information processing, it is now possible for a platform to view data intelligence as more than just a string of characters. To illustrate this point, software programs can now recognize people by their name and locations by their landscape. Such processing ability becomes the ready-to-use tool that was previously only available to data scientists.

Large amounts of data can get messy. They pile up and take up nothing but space. With semantic processing and efficient data management, it is possible to connect the dots from all that data. When data is mapped from raw data sources to a semantic graph, information becomes instantly accessible, visible, and usable for anyone.
