The What and Where of Big Data: A Data Definition Framework

The What and Where of Big Data: A Data Definition Framework | Implications of Big Data | Scoop.it

I recently read a good article on the difference between structured and unstructured data. The author defines structured data as data that can be easily organized. As a result these type of data are easily analyzable. Unstructured data refers to information that either does not have a pre-defined data model and/or is not organized in a predefined manner. Unstructured data are not easy to analyze. A primary goal of a data scientist is to extract structure from unstructured data. Natural language processing is a process of extracting something useful (e.g., sentiment, topics) from something that is essentially useless (e.g., text).

Businesses across the world are always trying to gain the upper hand on competitors. They try to new products, create new marketing schemes and invest in expensive technology, all to gain a competitive edge.
