Semantic technologies extract meaning from data, ranging from quantitative data and text, to video, voice and images. Many of these techniques have existed for years and are based on advanced statistics, data mining, machine learning and knowledge management. One reason they are garnering more interest is the renewed business requirement for monetizing information as a strategic asset. Even more pressing is the technical need. Increasing volumes, variety and velocity — big data — in IM and business operations, requires semantic technology that makes sense out of data for humans, or automates decisions.Gartner Identifies Top Technology Trends Impacting Information Infrastructure in 2013
PricewaterhouseCoopers believes a Web of data will develop that fully augments the document Web of today. You’ll be able to find and take pieces of data sets from different places, aggregate them without warehousing, and analyze them in a more straightforward, powerful way than you can now. And don’t let the term "Web" fool you into thinking this approach applies only to Web-based information; the underlying technology also applies to internal information and non-Web-based external information. In fact, it can bridge data from anywhere—including your data warehouse and your business partners.PricewaterhouseCoopers Technologyforecast, Spring 2009
