We talk a lot of about data – analyzing it, storing it and managing it. What about transforming it? Data transformation is the process of converting data from one format to another. This interesting topic came to us from Spice Works in their article, “What Is Data Transformation? Types, Tools, and Importance.”
Data transformation involves modifying the format, organization or values of data. Transformed data is usable, accessible and secure to benefit a variety of purposes. Organizations may transform data to make it compatible with other types of data, move it into the appropriate database or combine it with other crucial information.
Organizations benefit from transforming data by gaining insights into vital operational and informational internal and external functions.
Making data accessible is something we know a little about. Whatever you are searching for, it is important to have a comprehensive search feature and quality indexing against a standards-based taxonomy. Choose the right partner in technology, especially when your content is in their hands. Access Innovations is known as a leader in database production, standards development, and creating and applying taxonomies.
