Process structured vs. unstructured data

The world of data is infinitely large and constantly growing. A distinction is made between structured and unstructured data. But what exactly does this mean and how can Konfuzio help you analyze and process this data? In this blog post, we would like to clarify these questions and show you how Konfuzio makes your work with data easier.

Structured data vs. unstructured data

First of all, let's understand what structured and unstructured data are and how they differ from each other:

Structured data

Structured data is information that is organized in an orderly and predictable way. It follows a certain structure and can therefore be easily stored in databases and tables. Examples of structured data are customer data, product information or sales statistics. This data can be easily analyzed, searched and processed.

Unstructured data

In contrast, unstructured data is information that has no fixed structure or organization. It comes in a variety of formats and can consist of emails, documents, images, videos, or social media posts. Unstructured data makes up the majority of the world's data and is more difficult to analyze and process because it does not have a consistent structure.

The challenges of unstructured data

The processing of unstructured data poses a number of challenges for companies:

  1. Data diversity: Since unstructured data comes in different formats, it is difficult to analyze it in a consistent way. A text document, an image, and a video may require different analysis methods.
  2. Data set: The amount of unstructured data is enormous and constantly growing. Companies must therefore be able to process this data efficiently in order to gain valuable insights from it.
  3. Data quality: Unstructured data can be incomplete, inconsistent or ambiguous. Improving the quality of this data and extracting relevant information is a major challenge.
