Generally, structured data is considered data that conforms to an easily identifiable pattern and as part of this conforming, that data may be easily loaded into a relational database table "as is." Examples of this might be fixed-format files, or comma-separated files having an agreed upon pattern to each record within it. Unstructured data supposedly cannot be loaded "as is" into a relational table. Unstructured data is, by name, lacking an identifiable structure to make sense of the data, right? Not exactly.
