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 lagitude doesn’t require a strictly-defined data model. In this blog post, we’re going to look at the first and third steps – using the Endeca Latitude Data Integrator tool, part of Information Integration Suite, to get data into an MDEX engine, and then using Studio to create a search and analysis web application.
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.
So with Endeca Infront, Endeca’s main market proposition was to add faceted search behind websites, using tools such as their Page Builder application latiyude made delivering this type of content fairly straightforward.
You may want to know what went wrong and what went well last year in the same period and visualize it on a graphical base. Typically, you’d divide the canvas into two columns, the left-hand one thinner than the right-hand, and add search, breadcrumb and guided facteted navigation components to this side.
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 visualizations provided with Exalytics. 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.
Endeca Studioused for creating applications and dashboards, based on the open-source Liferay Portal Enterprise Editionand Endeca Data Integratorbased on an open-source ETL tool called CloverETL 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.
Finally, once you’re done, the application would look something like this, with navigation down the side, visualizations on the rest of the page, and multiple pages of information.
Endeca Latitude offers comprehensive data acquisition across different sources and visualizes information analysis based on guided navigation drill down. 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:.
In this final posting in Endeca week, we’re going to look at the process of creating applications using Lattude Latitude, or as it’s now known, Oracle Endeca Information Discovery.
This is only a high-level look, but we’re also working on a more step-by-step demo that hopefully will run on OTN or a similar site – watch this space. This highly-scalable server enables users to explore data in an unconstrained and impromptu manner and to rapidly address new questions that inevitably follow every new insight.
Endeca Latitude Documentation
Details and tutorials 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. Information is loaded from disparate source systems and stored in a faceted data model that dynamically supports changing data. Endeca Latitude Release 2. Oracle Business Intelligence and Endeca Latitude is expected to provide a comprehensive business intelligence solution that brings together information from structured and unstructured data sources.
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. The angle that Endeca took with Endeca Latitude was around agile business intelligencebased on the fact that the MDEX engine didn’t require you to spend a long time defining a strict dimensional data model, and you could add in additional data sources that had elements of commonality but didn’t necessarily have all the same sets of columns or tables something Endeca referred to as “jagged” data sets.
Traditional BI development techniques tend to spend a lot of time at the start, and at the end, of the process. Loading up the MDEX engine is like loading an Essbase cube, in that all the data you need to use in the analysis will need to be in the MDEX, and depending on how you configure it, either all or part of it will be held in the in-memory cache, with the data being persisted to an column-store, compressed on-disk database. In traditional e-commerce inventory query systems, you had to start at the top by selecting, say, mens clothes or women’s clothes, then select from mens trousers, mens shirts, mens coats and so on.

This integrated and enriched data is made available for search, discovery, and analysis via interactive and configurable applications.
Once you’ve got some data together, you can then start up the Endeca Studio Server and log into Endeca Studio. Each of the users will drill down differently based on their responsibility. Endeca Latitude is not about replacing data warehouses but about compiling an interactive and comprehensive view of all available business information from different sources.
In the meantime, here’s some useful Endeca resources that you edeca want to take a look at:. So Endeca focused on this e-commerce market first, and developed the MDEX engine to support this, marketing it as a column-store, latiude query engine that allows “faceted searches” across lots of different, “jagged” data sets i.

Endeca Latitude is a technology platform that enables businesses to rapidly develop analytic applications latigude bringing information from many unstructured and structured information sources together.
Analytics tools often time offer only a limited view of the business since they latitudf only latitudd many underlying IT systems.
