Upgrade Enterprise Search and Increase Insight

National Instruments confronted two challenges – the need to correlate structured and unstructured information and responding to Microsoft’s ‘end-of-support’ for their existing FAST search platform.  In tackling these challenges, they sought to upgrade user (both staff and customer) experience significantly – by leveraging more powerful text analytics to uncover and suggest new insight.  With Attivio they found the power to:

  • Support a global roll-out in multiple languages
  • Correlate structured and unstructured information without exhaustive data modeling
  • Deploy an information ontology to simplify user requests and increase the relevance of results
  • Increase connectivity to a wider collection of sources and enforce comprehensive information security

With a global, enterprise-scale, platform and Attivio’s comprehensive APIs and extensibility, National Instruments has replaced Microsoft FAST and achieved  “… a new level of business success”.

  • It scales to handle the largest, most complex problems – including big, Internet of Things data flows
  • Correlating across different data sources is an easy, query-time request
