You’re Not Ready to Deal with Unstructured Data

Unstructured data is varied in nature and continues to grow, especially in our new world of telematics, multimedia, and AI. In this sponsored episode, Amy Fowler of Pure Storage joins Gina Rosenthal, Enrico Signoretti, and Stephen Foskett to discuss the challenge of dealing with unstructured data. With IDC estimating that 85% of user data will be unstructured, the challenge isn’t to provide structure but to develop solutions that can handle data as it is. Today’s object storage systems offer extreme scalability, high performance, cost-effective, and offer API-based integration with applications to offer a world of possibilities for analytics and insights. This is an area where developments in data storage systems can help improve business outcomes and potentially benefit the world at large.
