Managing Unstructured Data Class

Posted by:

On May 20-22, 2013 the inaugural certification class for Managing Unstructured Data was held in Denver, Colorado. In addition to addressing how analytics can be done against the unstructured data found in Big Data, there were many highlights of the class. One highlight was that attendees could bring unstructured data from their own organization and process that data in front of the class, using tools and techniques found in the class. In using their own unstructured data, attendees turned their unstructured data into actionable, analytic enabled data. In doing so, attendees saw that you really can do analytical processing on unstructured textual data.

Another highlight was the certificates received by the class, certifying that they knew how to handle the unstructured data found throughout Big Data. The certificates are valuable credentials that will further certify the skills and worth of the individual attendee.

Yet another highlight was the lifetime achievement award received by Bill Inmon, who taught the class. The beautiful stylistic modern glass award was made by Bennett Awards.

Each day after class, an informal gathering was held in a local tavern. Created informally, another highlight of the class was the class song that was written. The class song focused on the many diverse aspects of textual disambiguation. The class song was recorded by a local performer and is available for scrutiny and enjoyment. This class was probably the only class ever given that had its own class song.
