Connectivity, the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence have impacted the amount of data produced in our world and how we use it. Previously, big data was a largely untapped resource, complexity and scale made it difficult to categorize, store and analyze. New techniques in data mining and analytics have allowed businesses to capitalize on this information, make predictions and look for opportunities to make better decisions. In this blog, we'll take a look at the difference between unstructured and structured data, how they're put to use, and how PrintFleet structures data.
