HP IDOL (Intelligent Data Operating Layer)—our next-generation information platform—enables you to extract meaning and act on virtually all forms of information. This includes unstructured data such as audio, video, images, social media, email, and web content, as well as structured data such as customer transaction logs. IDOL serves as a scalable, secure platform for forming a conceptual and contextual understanding of content. Offering far more than simple retrieval, IDOL’s meaning-based computing enables you to access and use all critical information for maximum benefit through more than 500 advanced functions.
Legacy data warehouses and business analytics systems analyze business data from ERP, CRM, or SCM systems. These traditional business intelligence systems answer the “what happened?” question. With IDOL, you can discover relationships between key data to reveal a depth of insight that helps you to answer the “why did this happen?” question automatically and proactively.
