It is intended for technology executives and project leaders who recognize the potential value possible by taking better advantage of the estimated 70 to 90 percent of today's "unstructured" information. For commercial organizations, this may lead to competitive advantage or new business opportunities, while government agencies may obtain greater mission advantage.
