Where BI mines structured data, Content Intelligence mines unstructured data. It mines unstructured data to make better business decisions.
Today 25% of time is spent on finding the right information but even then, we’re only 80% sure that it is the right decision. Shockingly true. Too much time spent and still not sure that you do the right thing.
With content intelligence the context of the information that is derived from content and process analysis, insight is created when combing this with big data analysis, often from external information like trends. Together leading to actions. Actions that lead to new contexts, new insights and new actions.
Tools from EMC can deliver this but it was hard to deliver it in a business application through xCP.
With xCP 2.0 this has now changed.
- Although dm_relation was available in Documentum, it wasn’t in xCP. Now it is. So business objects can be related like they are in the underlying data model
- The availability of meta-data from both the data model, including meta-data, and discovered meta-data from CIS can now be used to created context or to created e.g. faceted navigation.
- Connecting to external services to include Big Data results. Plumtree.
- Easy way of creating flows, wizards, to support human decision steps.
- Create rules for business events like a change in a status attribute
- The document viewer for all sorts of documents in stead of the obvious common handful — believe it’s the one from Deaja.
So, what will this impact the business? Structure human business decisions!
With xCP 2.0 you can start looking for those business critical processes that are important enough to be supported with a formal process that is dynamic and as accurate as possible from your information assets.
Oh, and for a side note: Where does D2 fit in? D2 is a rules engine for content. Different from what xCP does, fitting perfectly next to each other.
