Whether in the form of premium news feeds, comments on social media, research field notes or text files on the company intranet, the amount and level of unstructured data available to any organization today is an important source of intelligence and also an ever-growing part of what constitutes big data. Semantic technology, which allows for a deeper automatic understanding of text by working to quickly understand the meaning of words in context, has evolved to become a strategic opportunity for enterprises to capitalize on these data sources for a competitive advantage, with the added benefit of not disrupting existing technologies and systems.
