Does unstructured and transactional data make sense for MDM and CluedIn?
More than ever, the answer to this question is a resounding yes. The utopian of data is the ability for an engine to understand and correlate data in all types of formats, sizes, structures and more. As data from unstructured sources such as files and mail is processed, essentially the risk factor or fuzzy factor grows in producing a result that is correct. Modern techniques for analysing unstructured data are taking a much more heuristics, fuzzy, natural language approach to being able to understand the structure of unstructured content. Techniques like Named Entity Recognition have given us the ability to identify objects within text. From here they can be used to link to known objects like contacts, companies, dates and more.
