Today, more and more firms are forced to focus on data enrichment efforts for various reasons including improving data quality and turning data into enterprise intelligence. According to numerous media sources (i.e. Gartner Research, Duns & Bradstreet, etc.), data enrichment inevitably will require “categorization” as a key step to developing a strategic content digitization program.
