SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GARTNER Catalyst Conference -- Radiant Logic (www.radiantlogic.com), the market leading provider of federated identity solutions based on virtualization, will announce its data management capabilities in a speaking session at Gartner Catalyst, discussing how a highly scalable, model-driven data integration service enables enterprises to join information across application silos and publish the result as a set of contextual views. Such views tie together business activities and workflows that have long been artificially siloed by applications/APIs, and data sources such as SQL and LDAP.
Identity & Context at the Center: Patented Technology for Mapping Context Across Systems and Delivering It Via Big Data
With Radiant Logic’s patented “EML” or extract-model-load technology, it’s now possible to leverage data model and identity to link information and derive context out of data silos and APIs. Such a system offers many advantages to today’s siloed enterprises.
“Big data promises to add massive scale to business intelligence and analytics—in particular by leveraging text analytics with the unstructured data of social media threads, emails, and other documents,” said Michel Prompt, founder and CEO of Radiant Logic. “What we’re doing is exactly that same thing for your enterprise structured data. By linking application silos, encoding that data as a series of readable English sentences, and publishing those business contexts, we deliver a complete view to drive the analytics that make your business run better. Such a framework delivers a set of unified contextual views and a curated vocabulary from across diverse applications, allowing you to quickly search once-hidden or implicit relationships, while adding many IQ points to your business intelligence and speeding your reporting efforts.”
Just Add Context: Integrating Across Silos to Feed Analytics & Reporting Tools
RadiantOne identity and context technology has been typically used to create a global user profile for employees or customers by integrating information from multiple identity sources. Such a profile is essential for achieving true, fine-grained access control in the security space. By linking and contextualizing information across application data silos or APIs, that same technology also enables better reporting and more informed—and intelligent—BI and analytics.
“With the RadiantOne Context Server, businesses can perform context-driven analytics at great scale, instead of dumping data into big data systems and hoping the connections become clear,” said Dieter Schuller, VP of Sales and Business Development at Radiant Logic. “Basically, we are the glue that connects all the rich information you have in your customer database to the marketing and transactional sales info you have on those same folks, giving you a complete view of the customer and his or her relationship to your company, organized by context. Knowing all this will not only help drive a better customer experience, it will change how you analyze, forecast, report on, and ultimately market and sell to that customer.”
Beyond SQL: Context-Driven Search Across All Structured Data
While the RadiantOne Context Server fully supports SQL for BI Analytics and reporting, the real game changer is that it also enables full keyword search. Being able to search all enterprise application data, organized and tied by business context, provides a 360-degree view of the entire business that’s accessible to all users—not just SQL specialists or tools administrators—according to their security profile and access rights.
According to Radiant Logic CTO Claude Samuelson, “With the RadiantOne Context for Data Management Server, it’s now possible to use APIs to link across different applications that have some kind of relationship—for instance, the Salesforce customer support function and the Bugzilla bug tracking tool—and enable end users to search between the two and find shared connections that were previously unseen. These keyword searches are as easy as searching the web and best of all, the results are delivered in a subset of natural language, readable by both humans and machines.”
