Big data. Unstructured data. Semi-structured data. Data, data, data. It seems like everyone is talking about data and the challenges that come with it.

Besides overwhelming organizations and requiring them to revisit their operations and processes, it is also forcing a non-connectional, isolated environment with regards to data. Organizations are finding themselves with piles of information, locked away in silos (different systems, different departments, different geographies). All this makes it very difficult to connect the dots and make sense of critical business information. This information overload forces companies to revisit and redefine how they index and store their information.

KMWorld brought this topic to our attention in their article, “Advanced Indexing Technology.”

We know that indexing against a strong, standards-based taxonomy can ensure comprehensive search results. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ISO/ANSI/NISO compliant taxonomies to produce comprehensive results.
