The Internet Services, Web and Mobile Applications, Pervasive Communication widely available today that are meeting many of our needs have stimulated production of tremendous amounts of data (call metadata, texts, emails, social media updates, photos, videos, location, etc.). Even with the power of today’s modern computers it still big challenge for business and government organizations to manage, search, analyze, and visualize this vast amount of data as information. Over 90% of this information is unstructured, what means data does not have predefined structure and model.

At the same time, just in case if you can process and understand your data, this data worth anything, otherwise it becomes useless.
