An SBA is a software application that uses a search platform rather than a relational database as its primary information aggregation, access and analytics infrastructure. This innovative yet proven approach enables organizations to break through the usability, performance and agility barriers associated with conventional relational database technologies while preserving their existing IT investments.
In EXALEAD SBAs, the CloudView platform first non-intrusively collects data from internal or external sources, including Big Data sources like metering equipment, message queues, mainframes, data warehouses and the Web.
Next, the CloudView Semantic Factory uses advanced semantic processors to transform this heterogeneous data into a unified base of actionable information intelligence.
Finally, CloudView's semantic query processing and dynamic computation and visualization technologies enable this information intelligence to be delivered in context to users to improve business processes.
Whether these processes involve 100 enterprise users or 100 million Internet users, EXALEAD technologies excel at hiding the scale and complexity of source systems from users, replacing complex forms and queries or multi-application "hunting & gathering" with one-stop, Web-style search and second-nature visual reporting and analysis.
EXALEAD offers packaged, process-specific SBAs as well as a rapid application development framework, Mashup Builder, to enable IT to quickly deploy custom SBAs enriched with information intelligence from Big Data.
