Another fiscal year has come to a close, and we at Attivio have never been more excited about what’s to come. Our entry into the Big Data market is filling a void that enterprises struggle with every day.
We understand that data is a strategic asset that, when made accessible to everyone in the organization, can lead to smarter, faster decisions, pushing past the competition in ways that didn’t seem possible.
Enterprise search is back in the news—with a twist. Companies that really want to accelerate their results with BI and Big Data are looking to enterprise search as a way to help business analysts quickly find the data they need. Note that I said “data,” not information. Enterprise search has always been thought of as a way to find unstructured content in file shares like SharePoint. But now, it’s being applied to strucutured data as well. And if a search solution can combine data with unstructured content so much the better.
For all the talk about the importance of making decisions based on solid data, most companies still struggle to understand what data they have and how to get at it to actually use it.
Your company has taken the time to ensure you are capturing as much data as possible whether it’s structured, unstructured or semi-structured. You also purchased the best BI tools to help you analyze your data for insights. But there’s a problem. There are serious gaps in the data supply chain.
Google’s recent announcement that it would discontinue support for the Google Search Appliance (GSA), in favor of a cloud-based implementation for its Google Search for Work offering seems to suggest a dilemma for enterprise architects.

The challenges you face as a risk and compliance professional reflect forces beyond your control. You’re between an accelerating expansion in technology – which offers new avenues for misbehavior - and a rising tide of regulatory expectations. It’s a classic problem of supply and demand.
For all the talk about competing on analytics, little is said about what that takes. Strong visualization? Speed? Easy to use tools? It takes all that, of course, but one thing comes first: ready access to the data — the right data, for the people who need it, when they need it.
