In "Finding business intelligence in chaos: Data Warehousing and the unstructured data problem," Shaku Atre will discuss how to overcome the challenges of storing and analyzing unstructured and semi-structured data in a data warehouse.
Information is useless if you can't find it. And unstructured information is extremely difficult to find. It consists of memos, reports, letters, white papers, marketing material, research, presentations, web pages, etc. Unstructured information contains a significant amount of free-form text and does not reside in a structured database. This is information for which a precise schema is unavailable. How to store it then in a data warehouse? The advent of Internet has resulted in the explosive growth of unstructured data stored in organizations. It is stored on local hard drives, file servers, or email systems. There is significant amount of business intelligence hidden in these documents waiting to be discovered. The invention and adoption of XML standards creates the capability for the conversion of this unstructured or semi-structured into a structured form that encapsulates the information contained within. This presentation will show you how to find business intelligence in your company's unstructured and semi-structured data and the challenges of storing it in a data warehouse.
This webcast includes a live slide presentation, followed by a real-time question and answer session with members of the audience.
