Organisations are faced with an ever-increasing flow of different data types, including formal, database transactional information as well as less structured documents, voice and video. Within this mix of data types lies the intellectual property of a given organisation – and ensuring that it is in a format that can be easily mined and monetised is an on-going battle.
