The combination of Business Objects and Inxight Software will provide organizations with a BI solution to address all of their data assets. With the combined technology, companies will have streamlined access to both structured information within databases and data warehouses, and unstructured information such as emails, documents, notes fields and Web content that is estimated to comprise more than 80 percent of all organizational data. Inxight brings a compelling combination of text analytics, federated search, and visualization capabilities to the BusinessObjects XI platform to enable customers to easily discover, manage and analyze unstructured content inside and outside of their organization.
