Unstructured BI

Business Objects has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire privately held Inxight Software for an as-yet undisclosed amount. The companies say the combination of offerings will provide organizations with a comprehensive BI solution and streamlined access to both structured information within databases and data warehouses, as well as unstructured information such as e-mails, documents, notes fields and Web content.

Business Objects reports it's trying to break down the barriers to full spectrum BI and deliver a solution that natively combines both structured and unstructured data across all areas of business intelligence–from enterprise information management to information discovery and delivery to performance management.

Inxight’s suite of products includes search federation; summarization, categorization, and clustering; fact and entity extraction; taxonomy creation; and visualization.
