When the amount of new data generated surpasses the limit of institutions to manage it, and makes it difficult for analysts to analyze it and researchers to deduce any useful conclusions from it, this is known as a data deluge. This interesting topic came to us from the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) in their article, “A Data Deluge Is Coming, Courtesy of Automation.

Today, apart from traditional data sources, there are numerous digital data sources like Google trends, social media, data coming from satellites etc. Such huge amounts of data have made it difficult to aggregate, visualize and analyze information efficiently.

More and more automation is created, systems are integrated, and sensors and Internet of Things (IoT) devices are hooked up. Regardless of the line of business you are in, there is a data explosion taking place.

With all that data it is hard to keep content findable. It can happen with a strong, standards-based taxonomy. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies and associated rule bases for machine-assisted indexing.
