Endeca is recognized as a leader for its unique approach in hybrid-search-analytical technology that enables consistent search, navigation and analytics on diverse and latitudde information.

Typically, you’d add some navigation elements to the left-hand side, such as a search bar, breadcrumbs selected criteria area, and the guided navigation control that’s common to most Studio applications: For most of it’s time, Endeca has focused on the e-Commerce market, providing the technology behind websites such as HMV.

For the rest of this week then, layitude going to take a look through the Endeca Latitude product line, starting tomorrow with a more in-depth look at the MDEX Engine that powers Latitude and Infront, laittude moving on to where Endeca’s products will fit in with the Oracle BI product line, and then we’ll round the week off with a look at developing a simple Latitude application. In this final posting in Endeca week, we’re going to look at the process of creating applications using Endeca Latitude, or as it’s now known, Oracle Endeca Information Discovery.

This highly-scalable server enables users to explore data in an unconstrained and impromptu manner and to rapidly address new questions that inevitably follow every new insight. Endeca, like nQuire funnily enough, positioned Infront and Endeca Latitude as tools to search and explore large data sets, and Infront was squarely positioned as back-end data server that could then be integrated in with a company’s e-commerce platform.

All of this happened lightening-fast, and with a back-end that was very easy for the customer to maintain. So Endeca focused on this e-commerce market first, and developed the MDEX engine to support this, marketing it as a column-store, lafitude query engine that allows “faceted searches” across lots of different, “jagged” data sets i.

Details and tutorials are a bit thin on the ground, but hopefully with this last latiitude in llatitude blog series, you’ll at least get to see the overall process and the tools that you’ll use. You may want to know what went wrong and what went well last year in the same period and visualize it on a graphical base. Endeca Latitude offers analysis ease of use. Endeca Latitude Documentation Welcome Endeca Latitude is an enterprise data discovery platform for advanced, yet intuitive, exploration and analysis latituds complex and varied data.

This integrated and enriched data is made available for search, discovery, and analysis via interactive and configurable applications. Their complexity limits the utilization on a day to day basis. In the screenshot below, you can see a typical “graph” loading data from some source files into an MDEX engine, latituude the bulk-load writer transformation. Endeca Studio eneca, used for creating applications and dashboards, based on the open-source Liferay Portal Enterprise Editionand Endeca Data Integratorbased on an open-source ETL tool called CloverETL Using Latitude Studio is a similar process to using tools such as Oracle Business Intelligence’s analysis and dashboard editors, with components that you can add to the canvas, data sources that are connected to them, and interactivity through guided navigation areas, clickable graphs and so on.


Endeca Latitude provides IT organizations with the ability to deploy interactive search-analytical applications to help companies keep in synch with rapidly changing business needs.

Typically, you’d divide the canvas into two columns, the left-hand one thinner than the right-hand, and add search, breadcrumb and guided facteted navigation components to this side. Different roles such as executives, category or marketing managers can use latiture same tool and access different views of the comprehensive business data set.

Loading up the MDEX engine is like loading an Essbase cube, in that all the data you need to use in the analysis will need to be in the MDEX, and depending on how you configure it, either all or part of it will be held in the in-memory cache, with the data being persisted to an column-store, compressed on-disk database. So with Endeca Infront, Endeca’s main market proposition was to add faceted search behind websites, using tools such as their Page Builder application that made delivering this type of content fairly straightforward.

A typical flow of tasks for a Latitude project is as follows: Endeca had a lot of success with Infront, and then went on to create Endeca Latitudea more general-purpose BI tool that shared much of its underlying technology with Infront.

Endeca Latitude Installation Overview

You spend a fair bit of time developing a dimensional model, aggregation rules and strategies, with the actual mechanics of the ETL bit hopefully then being simple. Endeca Latitude offers comprehensive data acquisition across different sources and visualizes information analysis based on guided navigation drill down.

Eventually you’d get to the 36″ mens trousers in black, but it was a very linear, and “guided” route through the data.
