With technology getting better and better by the day, the ability to share information domestically and overseas is becoming more important. Sid Probstein, Chief Technology Officer at Attivio, joined NECN Business on May 1, 2013 with insight into these data sharing efforts.
Attivio, Inc. the leader in unified information access (UIA), has been positioned in the "Visionaries" quadrant in Gartner's April 25, 2013 "Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Search," recognized as one of the most influential market analyses for organizations seeking to evaluate software. According to Gartner, "Visionaries address the keen desire of enterprises to pursue consumer-class search experiences with fresh capabilities and flexibility. They understand that chasing the "Google experience" is not sufficient, but that providing search features that allow for better collaboration, application development, and innovative means of finding and working with content is particularly valuable."
Attivio's Active Intelligence Engine® (AIE®) combines the power of enterprise search, BI and big data analytics for strategic applications and solutions that can be deployed on-premise or in the cloud. Attivio AIE maximizes the return on customers' information assets by powering solutions that integrate multiple disparate information sources to improve sales performance, delight customers, ensure compliance, minimize risk and drive productivity.
"We believe our position at the highest point on the ability to execute axis of Gartner's "visionaries" quadrant speaks to the innovation, growth and successful results our clients are realizing," commented Ali Riaz, CEO at Attivio. "We remain focused on creating the most complete access and interpretation of businesses' information assets."
"Enterprises need powerful search technology that brings clarity to complexity," stated Sid Probstein, CTO of Attivio. "Attivio's technology integrates all related content and data matching a single query, with no advance data modeling, no ‘flattening' of data tables and, thanks to our patented query-time JOIN capability, no pre-defined query requirements."

A silent epidemic afflicting hundreds of thousands of companies worldwide was diagnosed as "Silo Syndrome" today by leading Big Data authorities. Long speculated as the cause behind loss of agility, business insight and competitive advantage, Silo Syndrome does not discriminate, and is particularly dangerous to organizations in the financial services, healthcare, technology, e-business and government sectors.
Common symptoms of Silo Syndrome include:
If corporations experience any combination of these systems, they should seek help immediately.
Sid Probstein, CTO of Attivio, is working on the front lines to aid the afflicted and says a cure is available.
"Silo syndrome does not have to cripple business," Probstein said. "If a unified information access approach to managing silos of information is taken, companies do not have to suffer. They can live long and profitable lives."
