The importance of effective data management has not changed. The quantity of the data has exploded and requires more space and attention, but it is just as important as it has always been. DATAVERSITY brought this information to us in their article, “Top Trends in Semantic Technology for 2016.”

To do manage the data, organizations are increasingly using cognitive computing to quickly respond to changes in their business and proactively gain insight that can improve productivity. The core of a cognitive system is comprised of the ability to mimic human understanding. Because of this, semantics is and will remain a key technology.

Semantic technology is a cornerstone of any metadata strategy because of its essential role in various phases of the metadata process. It supports the creation of taxonomies based on an analysis of the available content and identifies relevant tags for each piece of content.

Semantic technology does require special knowledge of terminology and coding to reduce errors. Access Innovations, developer of the M.A.I. machine assisted indexing system and specializing in complex coding, tagging, and indexing, provides a range of services that deliver tag integrity.
