Get value from data you know of, and dark data you don’t.

For most organizations, structured data only makes up 20% of all business data, which means decisions are only partially data driven. Uncover your unstructured data with Shinydocs.

What is Unstructured Data?

Unstructured data encompasses diverse formats like emails, videos, and social media content, lacking a fixed schema for easy storage or analysis. It presents both a challenge and an opportunity for businesses to harness insights through advanced analytical tools. Efficiently managed, it can unlock significant value, driving innovation and informed decision-making.

Uncover hidden insights in your unstructured data.

Structured data represents a small part of most organizations’ data. The insights hidden in your unstructured data, like documents, files, and media, are pivotal to making business decisions with confidence.

Incomplete data makes decisions difficult

Your team needs confidence that important business decisions are made with all the available information. Excluding unstructured data from decision making means leaving potentially crucial insights behind.

It takes forever to find what you need

When you need to make a business decision, tracking down the right data can feel impossible. Often, the info you need is buried in documents, which can mean spending hours searching before you can perform your analysis.

Unstructured data is underutilized

Many organizations rely on CRMs or ERPs for data-driven decision-making. The problem is that these systems use drop-down lists, pre-selected options, and free form text fields that are difficult to filter, sort, and analyze – leaving context and valuable data on the table.
