Direct Discovery for big data
QlikTech and Attivio have joined forces to give customers the ability to combine QlikView in-memory data with Attivio's Active Intelligence Engine (AIE) via QlikView Direct Discovery. The two companies report they have collaborated to test and validate Direct Discovery with AIE to leverage AIE's capabilities of unifying the variety of big data information to give business users a full understanding of what has happened and why.
The combined solution allows customers to integrate, correlate and analyze structured, unstructured and semi-structured information. QlikView can directly access unstructured and structured information from the Attivio AIE engine and display results in a QlikView visualization or dashboard. AIE is now available on QlikMarket, QlikTech's recently launched Web marketplace.
The companies cite the following specific business benefits of the Attivio and QlikView integration:
Financial services—reduce operational costs and streamline processes, gain visibility into transactions and optimize processing life cycles, increase effectiveness of risk and compliance initiatives, better analyze customer behaviors and maximize investment returns and portfolio performance.
Government/military—integrate, access and share information sourced from multiple disparate systems, databases and repositories that typically do not communicate readily with one another; improve information flow; shorten critical timelines and provide an affordable migration path to meet future requirements.
Life sciences—make faster, better business and clinical decisions; shorten discovery-to-commercialization product cycles; improve physician feedback to manufacturers and reduce the time and cost of regulatory compliance.
Manufacturing, retail and e-business—analyze retail sales from an unlimited number of sources of transactional data and unstructured information, collaborate with suppliers and partners more transparently, empower frontline staff to anticipate and resolve customer needs quickly.
