Text mining into big data warehouses

I previously noted that Attensity seemed to putting a lot of emphasis on a partnership with Business Objects and Teradata, although due to vacations I’ve still failed to get anybody from Business Objects to give me their view of the relationship’s importance. Now Greenplum tells me that O’Reilly is using their system to support text mining (apparently via homegrown technology), although I wasn’t too clear on the details. I also got the sense Greenplum is doing more in text mining, but the details of that completely escaped me. 🙁

It’s just a couple of data points, but I feel a trend here.

    I wanted elaborate a bit more on what Attensity is doing with Business Objects (BOBJ) and Teradata. Attensity has formed strategic partnerships with these companies, along with IBM. In the case of Teradata and IBM, they are actually resellers of our products. Many of the customers who purchase our Text Analytics solutions either lead their projects or are sponsored out of the business intelligence and/or data warehousing groups, along, of course, with the business line users and sponsors. Given Attensity is a smaller player (as compared to these larger technology vendors), it is important for us to partner with these leading vendors in order to offer our technology in conjunction with technologies and processes that have already been invested in, like BOBJ’s leading business intelligence application suite, Teradata’s Enterprise Data Warehouse and IBM’s Information Integration technology. These relationships also allow us to have better reach into the marketplace. If any of your readers want to learn more about how we technically work together with these companies and others – make sure to download our datasheets that describe our joint value proposition.

    […] I had a call with Business Objects, mainly about their overall EIM/ETL product line (Enterprise Information Management, a superset of Extract/Transform/Load). But I took the opportunity to ask about their deal with Attensity. (Attensity themselves posted more about the relationship, including some detailed links, here.) It actually sounds pretty real. They also mentioned that there seem to be a bunch of startups proposing search as a substitute for data warehousing, much as FAST sometimes likes to. […]
