Attivio Embraces Extreme Information Attivio (news, site) announced modules for its Active Intelligence Engine (AIE). The new modules enhance Attivio’s AIE platform with better support for big data and recommendation and classification engines.

Improving Business Intelligence

The volume of data that organizations are storing is increasing. Data sizes aren’t just getting larger. Organizational data is also being generated faster, becoming more diverse and increasingly complex. These changes have occurred so rapidly that many organizations are struggling to manage and gain insight from what Gartner calls “Extreme Information.”

Attivio is one of many vendors that has recognized this challenge and is offering a solution. Attivio’s AIE is an enterprise real-time data platform that allows organizations to analyze structured and unstructured information in one tool. Now, the company has released its Extreme (XT) modules specifically targeted at big data environments.

New Modules, New Possibilities

Attivio’s AIE XT Modules include multiple components. The Recommendation Engine allows users to analyze large volumes of information and its metadata to identify relationships. Organizations can leverage this capability in a number of ways, such as increasing online purchases by making recommendations based on customers with similar behavior. The Classification Engine categorizes documents using pre-built categories or a user-defined taxonomy.

Users of the Recommendation and Classification Engines aren’t restricted to using structured data. Attivio leverages advanced text analytics such as entity extraction, key phrase detection, ontology support and sentiment analysis, to understand critical business details and patterns stored in unstructured content such as documents, emails, SharePoint, web content, surveys or call logs. The XT modules also include connectors for multiple popular big data tools such as Cloudera, Hive, HDFS and Hbase. Finally, the XT Modules include the XT Services and Assessment Pack

Colin White, founder and president of BI Research and Sid Probstein, CTO Attivio, will provide additional details about the new modules in the webcast “Completing the Big Data Picture: Understanding Why and Not Just What” on Tuesday, July 26 at 12:00PM ET. Visit here to register.
