“So, what actually is contextualization?” As a Cogniter, this has to be the question we get asked most frequently. From customers, partners, and peers, as well as family and friends.

If you’ve asked yourself this question, then I’d highly recommend reading this blog post where @terjelo offers a great (and simple!) definition, as well as a real-world industrial example. Hopefully it’s something you’re able to use when your colleagues ask you more about contextualization!


contextualization (noun)
Contextualization is the process of identifying and representing relationships between data to mirror the relationships that exist between data elements in the physical world. The result is a richer data model that is greater than the sum of its source systems.
