The Future of Information: OpenText Release 16 Introduces Cognitive Systems

We’re infusing our EIM platform with cognitive technologies to provide our customers with deeper levels of insight and understanding into their enterprise information. We’ve accomplished this using analytics technologies like semantics and reasoning analysis in our Analytics Suite. In OpenText Release 16, the machines are waking up, and they’re talking to each other.


Cognitive Applied with OpenText Release 16

As illustrated in the following applications, when analytics are applied to unstructured information in a secure EIM repository, the information becomes much more valuable and insightful.

Election Tracker ‘16

Election Tracker ’16 is a lightweight information-based app that provides deep insights into candidate information, revealing much more than traditional polling data can. It scans and reads hundreds of top online media publications around the world. This information is analyzed to determine sentiment and extract additional information. Interactive dashboards and reports reveal trends and sentiment changes for a holistic view of how candidates are performing.

Finding H1N1

A Canadian public health agency scans up to 20,000 articles a day for early warnings of disease outbreak and other disasters. The system crawls unstructured information publicly over the web and applies a cognitive engine to produce a report. Thousands of threats are monitored—from H1N1 to bush fires in California to pestilence outbreaks in Africa. A cognitive system helps the agency identify, count, and track instances of possible threats to help save lives.

Intelligent BPM

Cognitive capabilities create intelligent BPM by examining tens of thousands of processes to find ones that are stalled, locate bottlenecks, elevate priority processes, or identify processes that are good candidates for automation. This is just one example of many of how cognitive can be applied to BPM for extreme automation and efficiency gains.

The possibilities of cognitive systems in OpenText Release 16 are endless. With the announcement of our cognitive platform, Magellan, our focus is moving beyond analytics to cognitive learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI), opening up our EIM platform to third-party algorithms.

In my next post, I will explore how our EIM solutions, when combined with our OpenText Business Network, provide unparalleled opportunity for digital transformation across extended business communities.
