Search + BI = Unified Information Access
National Solution Lead
By Henry Fernandez
PLAUT and Selera have joined forces to provide Australia's number One Business Intelligence and Enterprise Search consulting company. The PLAUT- Selera Partnership will provide services across a range of leading Business Intelligence and Enterprise search tools including SAP, Business Objects, Outlooksoft and FAST / Microsoft.
“The lines between search and business intelligence are blurring. Combining PLAUT’s strengths in traditional business intelligence with Selera’s track record in enterprise search will give our customers a holistic view of both structured and unstructured information. I am extremely excited by this new initiative” said David Prior, CEO PLAUT IT
His view is confirmed by Forrester research which points out that, “within large corporations today, neither BI nor search tools alone can deliver full business insight. Search tools can crawl, index and retrieve just about any kind of information, structured or unstructured, but fall short on helping the user decide what to do with the information. BI tools are great at helping businesspeople make sense of structured data, but have limitations in pulling unstructured content like text and documents into analysis. Search + BI = Unified Information Access”.
“Our team of highly skilled search consultants and engineers has a track record in delivering robust enterprise strength solutions. Our customers consistently report high levels of satisfaction with the quality of the solutions we deliver to solve business process problems. We are excited to be applying search platform based technologies to solve enterprise level business information problems” Dr Michael Lawler of PLAUT Selera said.
