Endeca Webcast - Unlock insights from every source

Most organizations have implemented business intelligence to enable decision makers to monitor, understand and improve business performance.

Yet over 80% of enterprise information exists as unstructured data beyond the reach of traditional BI environments - in websites, social media, content management systems, emails, documents, sensor data, external databases, and more - and this diverse and changing data is growing exponentially. Organizations that cannot understand the insights buried within this data are at a critical competitive disadvantage.

Join our Free Live Webcast on Wednesday, September 26 to find out how Oracle Endeca Information Discovery solutions unite the worlds of unstructured and structured data to provide business users with complete visibility into their business processes, creating new insights and enabling better business decisions. Only Oracle provides a complete, integrated solution for superior structured and unstructured data analysis, all delivered on engineered systems optimized for performance and low total cost of ownership.
