(Unstructured) Big Data: Context is King

Structured and unstructured content require a separate approach to manage and extract business value. The large amounts of structured data requires a high performance computing solution. The unstructured data requires a solution with a similar ability to scale, but for the solution to be effective, it must possess a unique ability to effectively identify context.
