Feb 01, 2012

Download The information powering today's organizations exists in two forms: structured and unstructured. When computers were first used, the focus was on structured data, which required humans to adapt the information to fit machines.

The nature of human communication is complex, using language and idioms, photographs and videos, recordings and social media interactions. Human information is unstructured and does not fit into the neat rows and columns of relational databases. Yet, it represents the fastest growing segment of the world's content.

Now, a groundbreaking information platform, Autonomy IDOL 10, enables organizations to understand and process 100 percent of enterprise information, structured and unstructured, in real time.
