Data is at its best when it contributes to smarter decisions. You leverage your big data resource so that it drives smarter decisions. DATAVERSITY brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “Making Your Data Progressively Smarter.”

The future of big data depends on smart data, which is data that utilizes semantic technology which makes it self-describing, and thereby facilitates delivery of contextualized, automated, and targeted data-driven insights.

Semantic technology is not the only path for smarter decisions. Layers of rich metadata, predictive models, interactive visualizations, decision-support applications, and other artifacts can all extract actionable intelligence from all your data.

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.
