Unicorn Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise information management solutions, announced the general availability of the Unicorn System v3.0. This release supports the overriding business goals of transparency, integration and agility using the unique One Language approach.

The Unicorn System is already deployed at leading Global 100 companies in industries including insurance, financial services industries and government. In addition to the semantic approach, the system's scalability, technical infrastructure, usability and flexible meta model have been touted by customers and leading analysts as its distinguishing factors.

The One Language paradigm is a way for the enterprise to achieve a common business language even when business information resides in hundreds of incompatible data formats. This approach elevates disparate data resources into a single coherent body of business information by applying one consistent business language. This provides a consistent and flexible foundation for IT infrastructure projects such as EAI, ETL and BAM.

Unicorn's CEO, Zvi Schreiber, said, "Enterprises that attempt to launch business intelligence and business integration projects without first making sense of their data are facing expensive and inflexible solutions. With the Unicorn System, it becomes easy to find out what data you have and what it means in terms of common business language; moreover, this same language can then be used as a far quicker basis for such reporting and integration projects."

The Unicorn System v3.0 capabilities include:

  • Enterprise meta data repository
  • Rich business language view captured in an ontology model
  • True semantic mapping with reusable business rules
  • Modern technical architecture based on open standards
  • Active Web interface
  • Data resource management (including discovery, redundancy analysis and data transformation planning)
  • Semantic engine for inferring the relationship between data formats

The Unicorn System is comprised of five components: the Unicorn Repository for storing meta data, information models (ontologies) and semantic mappings; the Unicorn Workbench for information modeling and semantic mapping; the Unicorn Server and Unicorn Web Interface for delivering active capabilities in support of data management and integration; and the Unicorn Administrator for supporting project and user management. The product specifically upports data architects, resource managers, developers, project managers and knowledge workers of all kinds.
A comprehensive "EII" solution is also available by combining the Unicorn System with a federated query engine, a solution known as "One Enterprise."
