The Internet is full of statistics demonstrating the ever-growing numbers of data generated daily. Many datasets are now in the petabyte and exabyte range and big data analysis systems process and analyze these massive amounts of data. Diginomica brought this interesting information to us in their article, “The cloud data migration challenge continues – why data governance is job one.”
Moving data to the cloud can bring immense operational benefits. Semantics, context, and how data is tracked and applied mean more than ever. When data moves, organizations must prioritize data discovery.
When migrating data to the cloud, one of the top concerns is the security of the data. Often, companies opt for a hybrid cloud solution. Separating storage and computing gives extra protection to sensitive data. Implementing role-based access control enables companies to control access to sensitive data in the cloud.
At the end of the day, data needs to be findable and, that happens 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.
