What are the critical skills that HR needs to have to turn this data into information that can be used for decision making?
Businesses create a huge amount of valuable information in the form of e-mails, memos, notes from call-centers, news, user groups, chats, reports, web-pages, presentations, image-files, videofiles, and marketing material and news. According to Merrill Lynch, more than 85% of all business information exists in these forms. These information types are called either semistructured or unstructured data or “Big Data”. An argument can be made that extracting structured information from an unstructured source is a form of analysis itself .One reason it is important is that it gets to the heart of how to handle unstructured big data sources in the long run. However, my point is simply that the final analysis, which is what started the process of acquiring the unstructured data to begin with, does not use the unstructured data. It uses the structured information that has been extracted from it that can be used to make strategic HR decisions. This is an important nuance. Clearly, some new tools can be useful to aid in the initial processing of unstructured data. However, once the information extraction step is complete, you’re left with a set of data that is fully structured and, typically, much smaller than what you had when you started. This makes the information much easier to incorporate into analytic processes and standard tools than most people think. Through an appropriate information extraction process, a big data source can shrink to a much more manageable size and format. At that point, you can proceed with your analytics as usual. For this reason, the thought of using unstructured data really shouldn’t intimidate people as much as it often does.
According to projections from Gartner (2003), white collar workers will spend anywhere from 30 to 40 percent of their time searching, finding and assessing unstructured data. Because of the difficulty of properly searching, finding and assessing unstructured or semi-structured data, organizations may not draw upon these vast reservoirs of information, which could influence a particular decision, task or project. This can ultimately lead to poorly-informed decision making. In the context of relational database systems, it refers to data that cannot be stored in columns and rows.
