Endeca, a next-generation information access company, announced a partnership with Clarabridge, an emerging leader in text mining software, to expand and simplify integration between the Endeca Information Access Platform (IAP) and popular business intelligence (BI) tools. According to the terms of the deal, Endeca will resell Clarabridge BI Connectors for Business Objects, Cognos and MicroStrategy BI platforms as value-added components of the Endeca IAP. The combined offering will help Endeca IAP customers extract additional value from BI investments, unite reports and key metrics with other key application data and content sources, and extend business intelligence to a wide audience of users. As a result, organizations can now deploy new classes of intuitive, self-service BI applications to thousands of workers without incurring the costs associated with deploying additional BI seat licenses and user training

The Endeca IAP unites disparate data and content, while providing business and IT benefits that extend far beyond enterprise application integration and information access approaches like enterprise search, portals and data warehouses. It gives businesses the ability to rapidly deploy applications that combine user-friendly tools like search, navigation, visualization and analysis in a single, seamless experience. And, representative of a growing trend towards unified information access, it offers businesses new capabilities to combine highly structured data from multiple enterprise applications (e.g. BI, CRM, ERP, PLM, SFA, etc.) with semi-structured and unstructured content assets from other key enterprise systems (e.g. file servers, email, enterprise content management, websites, etc.). As a result, businesses can provide employees with unprecedented insight, context and personalized flexibility to improve revenue-related decision making.
