Unstructured Data: The new AI for For Startup Funding?

Make way for AI-enabled orchestration tools

28 July 2023

One tends to think of digital data as something that’s easy to contain in neat silos and access on demand. The reality is that the zettabytes of data that enterprises collect and store is increasing by the minute. Data collection and storage are expected to grow at double-digit rates for the foreseeable future.

The shift toward distributed teams

Employers no longer expect teams to work in the same location to solve problems or collaborate. Thanks Miro… Naturally, this means your team needs access to the data. From wherever. Whenever. To do that, data needs to be agile.

So much data, so little time

Remember the double digit increase in zettabytes we mentioned? As the collection of data increases for enterprises, it can be hard to find the right Data. AI-enabled tools that can draw unprecedented insights from mounds of data. Orchestration tools come into play here because AI requires massive amounts of data, much of it of the unstructured variety.

Keep an eye on these players

Tools that help companies organise, navigate and access all that digital information are generating more interest as well.

According to Gartner, unstructured data constitutes as much as 90% of new data generated in the enterprise, and is growing three times faster than the structured equivalent. At the same time, the vast majority of AI R&D projects never make it into production, which is usually due to a lack of the right tools.
