Agencies Can Now Study All Types of Data for Mission-Enhancing Insights

Thanks to the recent launch of Oracle Endeca Information Discovery, public sector agencies can now take advantage of a next-generation platform for provisioning data discovery applications across the enterprise.

This means they can quickly explore all relevant data with tools that
  • Combine structured and unstructured data from disparate systems
  • Automatically organize information for search, discovery, and analysis
  • Rapidly assemble easy-to-use analysis applications
Oracle Endeca Information Discovery complements traditional business intelligence applications, such as Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition 11g. “Business intelligence provides proven answers to known questions, and data discovery provides fast answers to new questions,” says Matt Brandwein, principal product manager, Oracle Endeca Information Discovery.

To facilitate data discovery, Oracle Endeca Information Discovery gathers structured and unstructured data sources on a single platform. Then it provides powerful integrated navigation, search, and analysis tools to help users understand the data.

Key capabilities of Oracle Endeca Information Discovery include
  • Rapid deployment. No predefined data model is required, reducing time and cost of deployment, and enabling rapid, iterative change.
  • Access to all relevant data sources. Integrate and explore information from data warehouses, enterprise applications, social media, call centers, claims systems, and other sources.
  • Consumer-oriented user experience. Intuitive interface, self-service functionality, interactive responses, and graphic results drive adoption and maximize value.
Public Safety and Cost Cutting
A number of law enforcement agencies are now using Oracle Endeca Information Discovery to predict crime patterns or assess threat levels prior to major public events. To do this, agents analyze past activities and explore social media sites, blogs, and other public forums to spot potential law enforcement issues.

“They can tie together all of these information sources to develop a complete picture of possible risks,” Brandwein says.

Other types of agencies are using the platform to find cost-cutting opportunities and prioritize new investments, he adds.
