Endeca Latitude enables an iterative “model-as-you-go” approach that simultaneously frees IT from the burdens of traditional data modeling and supports the broad exploration and analysis needs of business users. With Endeca Latitude, the data modeling part, and the dashboard building part, are relatively simple, and it’s the ETL bit that takes the time.

For most of it’s time, Endeca has focused on the e-Commerce market, providing the technology behind websites such as HMV. Endeca Technologies is a leading provider of: Then, you’d start adding visual components such as word clouds, record lists, metrics bars and so on to the main part of the screen. Endeca, like nQuire funnily enough, positioned Infront and Endeca Latitude as tools to search and explore large data sets, and Infront was squarely positioned as back-end data server that could then be integrated in with a company’s e-commerce platform.

Empfehlen Sie mich weiter? Well, this week, we’re going to focus on Endeca and run five posts, over the week, to give you a briefing on the Endeca products and how you might use them on a project.

Oracle Endeca Week : So Just What Is Endeca?

For the rest of this week then, we’re going to take a look through the Endeca Latitude product line, starting tomorrow with a more in-depth look at the MDEX Engine that powers Latitude and Infront, then moving on to where Endeca’s products will fit in with the Oracle BI product line, and then we’ll round the week off with a look at developing a simple Latitude application.

So Endeca focused on latihude e-commerce market first, and developed the MDEX engine to support this, marketing it as a column-store, rapid-development query engine that allows “faceted searches” across lots of different, “jagged” data sets i.

Endeca Infront is aimed at retail, manufacturing and other industries with large inventories that need to be searched through and analyzed. Analytics tools often time offer only a limited view of the business since they access only so many underlying IT systems.


So Just What is Endeca? Using Data Integrator, you either import or create references to latituve source data, define metadata for it such as the column structure, then create mappings, or “edges” between the endec data and either transformation operators, or operators that load data into the MDEX engine.

Typically, you’d add some navigation elements to the left-hand side, such as a search bar, breadcrumbs selected criteria area, and the guided navigation control that’s common to most Studio applications: You spend a fair bit of time developing a dimensional model, aggregation rules and strategies, with the actual mechanics of the ETL bit hopefully then being simple.

Endeca Latitude is an enterprise data discovery platform for advanced, yet intuitive, exploration and analysis of complex and varied data.

Using Latitude Studio is a similar process to using tools such as Oracle Business Intelligence’s analysis and dashboard editors, with components that you can add to the canvas, data sources that are connected to them, and interactivity through guided navigation areas, clickable graphs and so on.

Endeca Latitude provides IT organizations with the ability to deploy interactive search-analytical applications to help companies keep in synch with rapidly changing business needs. Table of Contents 1 – About.

Endeca (Studio and Server)

Information is loaded from disparate source systems and stored in a faceted data model that dynamically supports changing data. Although the individual steps are different, the process overall isn’t all that different to creating a data mart or an Essbase cube.

Eventually you’d get to the 36″ mens trousers in black, but it was a very linear, and “guided” route through the data. Details and latituee are a bit thin on the ground, but hopefully with this last post in the blog series, you’ll at least get to see the overall process and the tools that you’ll use.

In this final posting in Endeca week, we’re going to look at the process of creating applications using Endeca Latitude, or as it’s now known, Oracle Endeca Information Discovery.

Endeca’s MDEX Engine is a data management engine that enables enterprises to correlate, search and analyze:. This integrated and enriched data is made available for search, discovery, and analysis via interactive and configurable applications. You may have noticed in the press and on the web that Oracle agreed to buy Endeca back in October last year, and it’s just recently that all the paperwork has been settled and Endeca brought into the Oracle fold.


Endeca Studio and Server 71 pages. Hier kommentieren Ihre E-Mail bei gravatar. So Just What is Endeca? About a couple of years ago, Endeca took the core technology from this product and created a standalone BI tool called Endeca Latitude, complete with dashboard components, an ETL tool, dashboard and report designers, and a story that revolved around “agile BI”, based on the fact that the MDEX engine doesn’t require a strictly-defined data model.

Based on the chosen refinements the according customer feedback is brought forward.

The combination of Oracle and Endeca is expected to create a comprehensive technology platform to process, store, manage, search and analyze structured and unstructured information together.

The screenshot below is of the sample application that comes with Endeca Latitude, and we’ll see more on how the development process works later in the week. As you click on the guided navigation items, the controls on the right are automatically filtered, in a similar way to Qlikview, or the new high-speed ,atitude provided with Exalytics. Views can be saved and sent to other managers for further investigation.

In the screenshot below, you latituude see a typical “graph” loading data from some source files into an MDEX engine, using the bulk-load writer transformation.

About Endeca Latitude

Endeca Latitude Release 2. Once you’re done, you spend the rest of the time developing reports, analyses, dashboards and so on. A typical flow of tasks latitide a Latitude project is as follows: Endeca Latitude offers analysis ease of use. So with Endeca Infront, Endeca’s main market proposition was to add faceted search behind websites, using tools such as their Page Builder application that made delivering this type of content fairly straightforward.

Once you’ve done the hard work of getting your unstructured, semi-structured and unstructured data into MDEX, parsed and combined it, creating the Studio application is the easy bit.
