Like other industries, the telecom, media and technology (TMT) industry struggles with data silos and hundreds of data sources in multiple data formats. This is further complicated by the size of the data sets and, more recently, the complexity and prevalence of unstructured data sources.
The growing use of social networking, blogs, vlogs, group chats, text, photo and video postings makes unstructured data a critical problem, compounded by the need for TMT companies to act on the data in real time. Anything short of real-time action renders the data irrelevant and the business opportunity lost.
