Big data has been made a complex issue by attaching scientific and mathematical hassles to it, according to Tyler Bryson, General Manager – Marketing and Operations, Microsoft SMSG India. Organizations already have a lot of data that needs to be put in the right place to be analyzed in the right manner. Microsoft believes in using simple tools to make data useful and available to all.

“Big Data should be treated in a manner that it helps everybody and not just experts and data scientists,” he added.

One way to ensure findability, even with big data issues, is through a taxonomy. A standards-based taxonomy provides clear and concise order to your data, which enables comprehensive search results. Standards are key to a solid taxonomy and comprehensive indexing.
