Today’s businesses, applications, social media, and online transactions generate more data than ever before, which can be explored and analyzed to provide tremendous business value. IBM® InfoSphere® Data Explorer enables organizations to simultaneously explore and derive insights from enterprise data that was traditionally siloed in enterprise applications, different data repositories, and in different data formats. Applications developed using Data Explorer identify data relationships across these silos, unlocking the business value that is inherent in a unified, 360-degree view of the information related to business entities such as application users, customers, products, and so on.
This IBM Redbooks® publication discusses IBM InfoSphere Data Explorer 9.0, providing overview, architecture, and use case discussions that you can use to:
- Understand the core capabilities of Data Explore Engine and Application Builder.
- Realize the full potential of Data Explorer applications.
- Discuss the integration and value of the combination of Data Explorer and Master Data Management.
