In today’s world of Big Data, critical information in any given organization is buried in text. Whether in documents, web pages, or email and premiere data feeds like Thomson Reuters, this information does not sit within standard databases and so eludes rigorous analysis, integration, governance, and monitoring.
Anzo Unstructured solves this problem by enabling users and businesses to connect data within unstructured documents with data anywhere else in the enterprise, including traditional, structured databases. Business users can use many of the third party partner, or open source text mining software tools and web services with Anzo Unstructured to mark up and extract entities and concepts from targeted text sources. As a result, Anzo presents a single, unified information access experience for all data, enabling business users to search for and edit data right in Microsoft Excel or in web browsers without requiring IT involvement.
Highlights in Anzo 3.0 include:
- Order of magnitude improvements in data scalability and query performance
- Solution API support so that developers and partners can create bundled apps for the Anzo platform
- Ability for users to create derived properties—critical for true what-if analysis—which are automatically maintained by Anzo for reporting and monitoring
- Significant usability improvements in Anzo for Excel and Anzo on the Web for greater end-user data management
- HTML5 Charts in Anzo on the Web
"Companies have been struggling with how best to mine information from the growing amount of unstructured data. Until now, there hasn’t been an easy-to-use tool on the market that can address the issue of combining data in unstructured documents with traditional enterprise data sources from once central location,” said Alok Prasad, President of Cambridge Semantics. “The ease of deployment and flexibility of Anzo makes it possible and this capability was why we recently won the Best of Show award at the Bio-IT World Conference. From competitive intelligence to compliance information management, leveraging the value of unstructured data is critical to our customers.”
Anzo is built on the W3C open standards of the Semantic Web, which are designed to connect data. Anzo provides end users with access to data virtualized from anywhere in their enterprise and on the web. Anzo Unstructured extends this reach to the hidden world of textual data.
