As the information technology spreads over the globe, more and more people become involved in tasks of storing and exchanging information. Most of these people have no skills or time for programming or installing database software, neither these people can do data formalization needed. The paper describes research-in-progress work on information systems that store semi-structured data and use heuristics to make hypotheses about possible data structure. Such systems are intended to be more user-friendly as data formalization is performed by answering simple questions.
