User Self-Service Data Mash-up Analysis and Discovery
with OBI11g and Hadoop
Information Discovery 3.1 (OEID) is a major release that incorporates
significant new self-service discovery capabilities for business
users, including agile data mashup, extended support for unstructured
analytics, and an even tighter integration with Oracle BI.
Data Mashup and Discovery Dashboards: business
users can combine information from multiple sources, including their
own up-loaded spreadsheets, to conduct analysis on the complete set.
Creating discovery dashboards has been made even easier by intuitive
drag-and drop layouts and wizard-based configuration. Business
users can now build new discovery applications in minutes, without
depending on IT.
Integration with Oracle BI: OEID
3.1 enhances its’ native integration with Oracle Business
Intelligence Foundation. Business users can now incorporate
information from trusted BI warehouses, leveraging dimensions and
attributes defined in Oracle’s Common Enterprise Information Model,
but evolve them based on the varying day-to-day demands and
requirements that they personally manage.
Unstructured Analysis: business
users can gain new insights from a wide variety of enterprise and
public sources, helping companies to build an actionable Big Data
strategy. With OEID’s long-standing differentiation in correlating
unstructured information with structured data, business users can now
perform their own text mining to identify hidden concepts, without
having to request support from IT. They can augment these insights
with best in class keyword search and pattern matching, all in the
context of rich, interactive visualizations and analytic summaries.
Self-Service Discovery: OEID
3.1 enables IT to provide a powerful self-service platform to the
business as part of a broader Business Analytics strategy, preserving
the value of existing investments in data quality, governance, and
security. Business users can take advantage of IT-curated information
to drive discovery across high volumes and varieties of data, and
share insights with colleagues at a moment’s notice.
Content from the Web with the Endeca Web Acquisition Toolkit: Oracle
now provides best-of-breed data access to website content through the
Oracle Endeca Web Acquisition Toolkit. This provides an agile,
graphical interface for developers to rapidly access and integrate
any information exposed through a web front-end. Organizations can
now cost-effectively include content from consumer sites, industry
forums, government or supplier portals, cloud applications, and
myriad other web sources as part of their overall strategy for data
discovery and unstructured analytics.
