Combining and Uniting Business Intelligence and Semantic Technologies

Project description

Intelligent information management CUBIST - Your Business Intelligence

The constantly growing amounts of data and an emerging trend of incorporating unstructured data into analytics is bringing new challenges to Business Intelligence (BI). Contemporary BI solutions fall short in the following aspects:

Firstly, they focus only on structured data and disregard the increasing amount of information hidden in unstructured data.

Secondly, BI users are dealing with increasingly complex analyses, but the complexity of BI tools becomes the
biggest barrier for their success.

CUBIST is an EU funded research project with a visionary approach that leverages BI to a new level of precise, meaningful and user-friendly analytics of data by  following a best-of-breed approach that combines essential features of Semantic Technologies, Business Intelligence and Visual Analytics. CUBIST aims to
• support federation of data from unstructured and structured  sources
• persist the federated data in an Information Warehouse; an approach based on a BI enabled triple store
• provide novel ways of applying Visual Analytics based on meaningful diagrammatic representations.
