Linking data sets via semantic technology is becoming more and more popular in the biomedical and finance industries. This can be credited in part to the Enterprise Data Management Council.

This interesting news was found on The Big Data Blog in their post, “Handling Big Data Variety.” New semantic technology is advancing the already established process by providing a set of formalized XML-based standards for storage, querying, and manipulation of data. One of most powerful aspects of semantic technology is known as entity extraction. This capability allows information to be extracted from unstructured data and combined with transactional data. This results in some deep analytics.
