Latest Release of Oracle Endeca Information Discovery Democratizes Data Discovery

Launched in November 2013, Oracle Endeca Information Discovery 3.1 gives new power to business users to expedite decision-making with enhanced self-service discovery capabilities.

"With the release of Oracle Endeca Information Discovery 3.1, Oracle provides the benefits of self-service information discovery with the requisite governance, standards, and security of an enterprise-class environment," says Wayne Eckerson, president of BI Leader Consulting, and industry analyst at TechTarget.

New feature highlights in Oracle Endeca Information Discovery 3.1 include

  • Self-service data mashups. Business users can quickly combine information from multiple sources, and then conduct analysis on the complete set. Besides data in Excel, the latest release supports connectivity with a range of databases as well as semistructured data in the Java Script Object Notation (JSON) format.
  • Easy creation of discovery dashboards. An intuitive drag-and-drop layout and wizard-based configurations make it easier to create discovery dashboards without depending on IT organizations. These advances enable rapid prototyping and iterations, so users can quickly understand the context of discoveries. 
  • Deep unstructured analysis. Business users can now perform their own text mining to identify hidden concepts—without 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. 
  • Enhanced integration with Oracle Business Intelligence solutions. Capitalizing on a common development foundation, business users can now quickly discover information in trusted warehouses built on Oracle Business Intelligence foundation. Business users are not just limited to dimensions and attributes defined in Oracle's common enterprise information model, but can quickly evolve dimensions and attributes according to their own needs.
  • Enterprise-class self-service discovery. Most data discovery products began as desktop tools. By contrast, Oracle Endeca's discovery technology was first designed for mission-critical applications, serving significant user and data volumes while ensuring airtight security and governance. With the latest release, business users can explore data and share insights instantly while still preserving the value of existing investments in data quality, governance, and security.
"With this release, we anticipate an even greater ability to spur adoption and improved time to value with enterprise-class self-service discovery," says Mark Rittman, chief technical officer, Rittman Mead.
