Big data was all the rage in the last few years, but now, it is just data. Big indicated something new, a larger amount of data than ever before. But now the increase is normal. It is still big but the expected size. Information technology leaders are now looking at how to get the most out of the investments they’ve made in the technology to handle such data. CMS Wire brought this news to us in their article, “Making Existing Big Data Investments Work For You.”

When it comes to extracting true value from big data, there are many ways to optimize the investment. One is to manage the metadata in a smart way. Manage it in a way that makes your content findable when the time comes. Information being findable is the result of good indexing and comprehensive metatagging. Automated indexing is a comprehensive approach to making content findable – making data findable. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies with integrated indexing rule bases to make their information findable.
