As of February 2012, Oracle can now provide Endeca Information Discovery (EID) to its customers and partners.
To download the software to try it out on Windows 64 or Linux 64, select Product Pack "Oracle Endeca", @ https://edelivery.oracle.com/
The Endeca Information Discovery product is available today, and is being used by customers to rapidly enable useful intelligence to be gleaned from a diverse set of sources to bring real business benefits such as:
Combining valid social sentiment analysis with enterprise data to identify threats and opportunities across product lines impacting top line and bottom line revenues,
Achieving previously impossible business outcomes such as using unstructured claim information to create a model for pricing risk in the insurance industry,
Quickly combining a large variety of data types (without the need for modelling) to identify security threats (Endeca is used by some of the world’s largest government intelligence agencies).
