Data curation is managing data to ensure that it fits for contemporary use and available for discovery and reuse.
For many organizations data is becoming the most valuable asset, but most of them use only a small part of the data they collect. This data can be extracted, connected/combined intelligently and efficiently for new kinds of analytics and applications. The main purpose of Data Curation is to ensure that data is reliably retrievable for future research purposes or reuse. Unlike Data Integration, which uses a top – down approach for bringing diverse data sources into one model, Data Curation uses a bottom-up and data-driven approach.
