REDMOND, Wash.- July 1, 2008 -Noetix® Corp., a software provider that automatically generates business intelligence (BI) content from enterprise applications, today introduced Noetix Search, a new product providing users with the powerful and intuitive search capability they need to quickly access Noetix data generated from Oracle E-Business Suite and PeopleSoft Enterprise applications.
“This growing trend toward the development of enhanced search functionality within business intelligence tools and across BI platforms remains vital for organizations,” said Dan Vesset, program vice president of Business Analytics at IDC. “Search products that deliver essential components including content classification and categorization better enable business users to reveal a more meaningful set of information objects. Enterprises should utilize information access technology in order to speed the retrieval of operational and strategic data for intelligent decision-making.”
Noetix Search is a web-based search application that enables Noetix users to quickly identify the right Noetix views for their reports via a familiar, intuitive user interface. Using their favorite browser (including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari), users enter a search term and are able to browse logical classifications of the most accurate results available for their specific data request.
This approach to exploring information related to queries and pre-built reports provides users with the ability to:
- See a detailed description of the Noetix view, along with examples and tips on how to build reports with it
- Sort quickly on columns that can be used to filter data and join to other views
- Find all views that use the same column
- See which views are related to and can be joined to other views
- Learn which Oracle tables were used to develop a Noetix view
- Display a list of the available columns in the Oracle tables used by the view
- Find all the views that extract information from the same Oracle table
- See the related roles, columns, tables, and questions associated with a particular view
- Print detail pages of information about a view, column, or table
In addition, Noetix Search enables end users to focus their search efforts using keywords to search across view names, view column names, table names, and table column names. Guided navigation enables browsing by roles, modules, or Oracle configuration. Noetix Search displays the view essay for each view, describing the type of information provided by that view, along with essential tips for successful use of the view.
“This release is one more step towards improving the overall experience for Oracle Enterprise applications customers looking to gain the most from their investments,” said Daryl Orts, vice president of Engineering Technologies at Noetix. “With the addition of Noetix Search to the Noetix family of products, those customers have an easy, intuitive approach to explore their content and quickly find the reporting objects they need. Traditionally, Noetix has generated a comprehensive Help File to guide business users and IT professionals through query and report development. Noetix Search leap frogs that functionality and puts that guidance in the hands of every business user.”
