Data’s future lies in just how smart it is. The properties of smart data are necessary for the massive quantities of big data and the variety of data types. For instance, unstructured data can have different needs for integration than structured. Smart data can handle that. This interesting news came to us from DATAVERSITY in their article, “The Evolution of Big Data to Smart Data.”

The power of semantics to the rescue. When it comes to extracting true value from big data, there are many ways to optimize the investment. Standards based semantics is central to providing understanding between the machines that actually generate data and those that manage it.
