NEWTON, Mass., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Attivio today announced Version 3.5 of its award-winning Active Intelligence Engine® (AIE®). Version 3.5 features a new Ontology Module and event-driven visualization capabilities that let analysts immediately understand what's happening on large, multi-node systems. Additional enhancements include expanded SQL support and automatic generation of thumbnail and preview images to help customers more rapidly view and retrieve critical information.

Ontology Module

Many organizations, particularly in industries such as financial services and life sciences, rely on ontologies -- formalized categories, terms and relationships for a specific domain -- to ensure consistent presentation and understanding of information. AIE enables enterprises to unify information access across hundreds of disparate information silos. With the AIE Ontology Module, customers can better correlate, access, and analyze information by using their existing ontologies as the basis for advanced entity extraction and query expansion. Features include:

  • Advanced entity-extraction through ontology-based dictionaries
  • Synonym support for enhanced entity extraction and querying
  • Query auto-complete and classification based on ontology terms
  • Zthes, SmartLogic, RDFS, OWL, YAML, and MeSH support with an extensible loader framework to easily add new input formats

Event-Driven Systems Analysis and Visualization

AIE's ability to ingest, integrate and correlate disparate silos of structured data and unstructured content through one, unified index eliminates the need to create separate databases for individual business applications. This integration removes the barriers found with database-backed systems and enables information-based connections never before possible. As AIE 3.5 executes workflows, enhanced systems and performance monitoring tools provide a unified view of all relevant metrics. Customizable graphical displays of important parameters stream in real time and overlay upon each other to correlate events and system behavior, providing critical insight to massive, mission-critical environments.

"IntraLinks is a leading provider of inter-enterprise content management and collaboration solutions used by 800 of the global Fortune 1000," said Fahim Siddiqui, Chief Product Officer, IntraLinks. "AIE's event-driven system and performance management have set a new standard of excellence that means we are able to proactively identify and resolve issues. For us, Attivio's Active Intelligence Engine is not just a technology; it's a key piece of our overall commitment to providing the best possible experience for our customers."

"Companies no longer need to accept trade-offs and compromises when they integrate and apply big data applications across multiple enterprise data repositories," said Sid Probstein, Chief Technology Officer, at Attivio. "Attivio AIE 3.5 is a linearly scalable platform that requires no additional stack or database and manages information of all sizes, shapes and forms. It is absolutely the strongest, most agile and customizable platform upon which to build business intelligence and competitive advantage."
