Scientists are more involved these days in discovering connections with the aid of data than traditional laboratory methods. However, large datasets can pose some difficulties, especially with integration. In scientific research circles, it can be a challenge to confirm the existence of data to correlate.

Government Computer News brought this to our attention in their article, “Unleash the data scientists: How government can use big data.” Unfortunately, data discovery often depends on word of mouth. It isn’t as easy as typing in a search field to find relevant data.

Maintaining access to your data is important all the time, and especially during integration. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies to make their information findable.
