Is text technology mirroring business intelligence?

After even more glitches than usual with their content management system, Computerworld finally posted the second part of my series on enterprise text technology architectures. I already posted the main points of the column here several weeks ago, but of course the column includes further material. In particular, I draw an analogy between text technologies and business intelligence, inspired in part by various direct ties between the two disciplines. Dave Kellogg makes a similar point, focused on general market development.

Just how precisely accurate the analogy winds up being will depend in a large part, I think, on whether search engines (analogous to data warehouses) will wind up being the foundation of text-heavy functionality. The jury is still out on that.
