Centauri Partners is a thought leading consulting and systems integration firm deploying advanced decision insight solutions using a unified information access approach.
Unified Information Access Platforms2 are search platforms that provide a single point of access to multiple heterogeneous sources of information. They form the foundation platform for search based applications. These platforms are highly scalable, and combine elements of database and search technologies in order to make information access dynamic and ad hoc, while offering the reporting and visualization features commonly found in business intelligence applications. They integrate large volumes of unstructured, semi-structured, and structured information into a unified environment for analysis and decision-making. While the vision for such integrated platforms has been around for years, products have only recently been released into the market. These emerging platforms unify access to data and content with newer, hybrid architectures that combine elements of both databases and search. Unified access applications:
