Autonomy Corporation plc, a global leader in infrastructure software for the enterprise, and Cognos, a world leader in business intelligence and performance management solutions, announced they have established a partnership and have developed in-depth integration that converges results of unstructured information with structured data for business intelligence.Cognos enterprise customers collect unstructured information today such as customer feedback, complaints, and interviews through phone conversations, emails, word documents and other sources that sit outside the scope of traditional databases. The integration of Autonomy and Cognos 8 BI provides instant high-level visibility, insight and analysis of an organization's business critical data. With Cognos Go!, enterprise users can now use concept-based search to quickly access the most relevant enterprise information. By detecting "hot topics" in an organization's information assets and alerting users to new areas of information, informed business decisions can be made quickly and accurately.

"Customers have told us for four years that integrating all of their scattered information is one of their top three problems," said Sue Feldman, Research Vice President, IDC. "It is impossible to fully understand a business without pulling both data and content together in a single application. The integration between Cognos and Autonomy is helping a global medical device company to quickly identify product issues resulting from real-time analysis of customer complaints. This type of application represents the future of unstructured information's role in business intelligence systems."
