      “PPC’s Data Unification Platform….  A new look on leveraging Big Content”

There is no question that “Big Data” is in the forefront of Companies and vendors these days.  Most of the Big Data tools do excellent jobs at analyzing and visualizing structured data.  The real challenge is how do companies and organizations  manage and derive value out of unstructured content?  Beth Maser, Sam Carson, and Barbara Schiffman will cover the following in this discussion: 

• Discuss some of the business challenges that companies face and how some are taking steps to overcome them
• Provide a “reference architecture” of what a new series of tools could be brought to bear to solve unstructured content challenges for a “disruptive technical platform”
• Explain how some of the technical solutions/components can be implemented in a modular fashion
• Q&A around best practices the group is discovering in the marketplace
