We often speak of the massive volume of data that exists and is being created each and every moment of the day. However, if you narrowed in on just a portion of that data, you would find that there is a large variety of data out there. Forbes brought this information to us in their article, “Big Data Variety Means That Metadata Matters.”

Often organizations ignore terms like “big data”, thinking it doesn’t apply to them because they are focusing on one or two specific types of data. However, if truth be told, data encompasses everything.

It is always important to entrust your data to professionals who adhere to industry standards and use technology that makes your content findable.
