Semantic Analysis of Unstructured Data

Big data is a much-hyped subject. In fact, the term is rather misleading because it seems to relate only to the volume of data, while ignoring its heterogeneous nature. Accordingly, the general definition of "big data," as suggested by Gartner, also considers the complexity and variety of data, thus focusing on the relevance of highly heterogeneous and unstructured information and how it can be analyzed in various forms. In particular, apart from the growing network of machines and equipment, social interactions are a further source of big data. With the exchange of messages in a wide variety of formats, on various platforms, and through multiple channels, large amounts of data are generated that demand analysis and interpretation.

Best Practices in Knowledge Management

KNOW THIS:  KNOWLEDGE IS ELUSIVE
 
Many knowledge management gurus will tell you that knowledge cannot be "managed," in the typical sense. Data can be managed. Information can be managed. But "knowledge" is in some kind of fourth dimension, outside of the reach of control.
 
Maybe it's a semantic argument. But there are plenty of people out there who are active knowledge managers--some with business cards that say so!--and spend their days managing their organizations' knowledge just fine, thank you very much.
 
But there IS a point to the pundits' argument: Knowledge is not easy to put your finger on. It's an ethereal thing; it's not simply data, and it's not simply "what's in people's heads" either. It's both. So to conduct knowledge management requires a deep understanding of the business AND the workers who walk in and walk out of your buildings every day.
 
The next KMWorld White Paper--"Best Practices in Knowledge Management"--will try to unravel that knot. If you have a way to address it, please contact:
