There is a lot of talk about big data, what it is, how to manage it, and where to store it. At its core, big data is metadata. Integrating it requires an experienced professional.

This interesting topic was inspired by IT Business Edge’s article, “Silos, Standards and the Big Secret of Big Data.” Managing the metadata becomes even more challenging when you adhere to standards. Of course, we’re all for standards, but many ignore them or lessen their value to the process. This inevitably ends up biting them in the proverbial end.

We know that it has never been more important to approach data integration based on accepted and shared standards. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies that can help you generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
