Endeca Brings Enhanced BI Capabilities to Oracle
October 5, 2012
Oracle’s acquisition of Endeca in October of last year brings the promise of enhanced business intelligence capabilities to the expanding business IT company. According to the post titled “What Endeca Adds to the Oracle BI Bag of Tools” on The Emtec Blog, Oracle will now be equipped to handle unstructured data such as social media and text files and has begun to change Endeca into a reporting engine for social media and other similar text source systems.
We learn about the new capabilities in the article:
“Endeca enables users to iteratively model the data as it suits them. IT does not have to perform traditional data modeling on the data before it can be available for end users. Endeca combines structured and unstructured data from disparate systems (inside or outside the company) and automatically organizes the information for search, discovery and analysis. This makes Oracle Endeca the only BI technology that unifies structured content and social media for analysis.”
The integration may prove a bit difficult for Oracle because of the power of Endeca’s unstructured data search capabilities, but will likely be a very wise move for the corporation. We can already see the company’s BI capabilities expanding and believe Endeca is a great addition to Oracle’s BI framework.
