Enterprise application search firm Exalead has released CloudView 360, a package of information management tools designed to make business data easier to view and understand.
The firm said that CloudView 360 allows enterprises to collate information from legacy customer relationship management tools, human resources applications, product lifecycle management software and web content, and use it in a more efficient way.
The software lets users apply semantic processing to data and mash it up to produce new ways of looking at it.
Exalead claimed that this offers competitive advantages such as better decision making, and cost savings which can be passed on to customers.
CloudView 360 uses semantics to produce mashups of data on the fly, including dashboards, executive summaries, charts, graphs and word clouds.
Searches can be applied across a range of applications, according to the firm, and CloudView 360 supports data from enterprise resource planning applications including those by SAP, document management systems such as Microsoft's SharePoint, hosted and in-house email, databases and social networking sites.
“Exalead CloudView 360 goes far beyond a simple search service. We now have the opportunity to build innovative business applications at the core of our IT,” said Bertrand Eteneau, chief information officer of automotive manufacturer Faurecia Group.
“We already have a few projects under delivery and discussion. The benefits, in terms of usability for our organisation and employees, are significant.”
CloudView 360 is available on-premise or as a cloud hosted system, and supports Windows, Linux and Sun Solaris.
