Unstructured Data

Unlike structured data, unstructured data does not conform to a data model, making it more difficult to categorize.

Examples of unstructured data include:

  • Documents
  • Presentations
  • Telephone recordings
  • Image files
  • Social media postings
  • Messaging texts
  • Some medical records

Unstructured data comprises 80-90 percent of an organization's data.
