The data challenge
Businesses and government agencies have looked to Dell Technologies’ unstructured data solutions (UDS) for two main reasons:
- Data sprawl. So much data is being collected, but how do we make sense of it?
- Gleaning useful business analytics from data collected.
The thing is, the majority of this collected data is not structured.

is made up of clearly defined data types that are easily searchable due to their patterns.
consists of data types that are not easily searchable. These data could be from videos, audio, social media posts, and even from drones, autonomous cars and AI.
According to Dallas, upwards of 80% of the average government agency’s data is unstructured.
Silos of unstructured data
Because unstructured data has traditionally been stored on legacy platforms, limiting silos have popped up for each data type.
In other words, imagine if your organization wanted to inform your autonomous car’s decisions with data from police cams. Even if you develop a partnership with a particular police force and are granted access to the video from their cameras, it’s hard to know how to search for anything.

So, your autonomous car’s data remains in its silo, uninfluenced by the potentially useful police cam footage.
These are the kinds of challenges Dell Technologies is solving with their unstructured data solutions
