Data fragmentation refers to the dispersion of an organization’s data assets. The more data you have from different sources and stored in different spaces, the more likely it is to be scattered. This interesting information came to us from Blocks and Files in their article, “Data fragmentation needs a data intelligence fix.”
Data visibility means knowing what data you have and where it came from, and it enables compliance and security. You can’t comply with regulations if you don’t know what data you have and nor can you secure data you don’t know you possess.
When data becomes fragmented, it means it is stored in separate locations. Processes like data fragmentation may adversely affect your resources, but it’s possible to improve how you handle this type of data.
At the end of the day, content 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.
