Posted by: Attivio, Inc.

Seamlessly indexes, joins and presents structured data and unstructured content and provides rich contextual and real-time business insights that help companies build revenue, cut costs and increase competitiveness.


Attivio’s Active Intelligence Engine® (AIE®) :


Attivio's award-winning Active Intelligence Engine (AIE) is the leading unified information access platform. It rapidly delivers comprehensive, high-value insight the way you want it, when you want it - regardless of what applications or sources you rely on. AIE supports SQL and simple search-style queries to retrieve information via reports, dashboard and customer interfaces.


AIE eliminates information silos while enabling organizations to rapidly fulfil new informational needs. As a result, business users gain new, real-time business insights that help build revenue, cut costs and increase competitiveness - insights that might otherwise have gone undiscovered.


A proven enterprise-ready platform, AIE provides the unified information organizations need to rethink, reframe and resolve business challenges - that's information-driven business agility.


AIE Completing the Big Data Picture :


Analytic database management systems and massively parallel processing address the challenge of massive data volumes, but significant gaps exist in their ability to handle the variety and complexity of information necessary to give you the complete picture that drives business insight.


Consider all the sources of unstructured content that contain important insights about employee, partner and customer behavior and opinions. There is a wealth of value that is today largely untapped - emails, open-ended survey questions, web forms, call logs, discussion boards, SharePoint and Wiki sites to name just a few.


Attivio completes the Big Data picture by fulfilling the demands of what Gartner calls Extreme Information - high levels of volume, velocity, variety and complexity.

Key Features

Hybrid Index

AIE ingests all types of structured data and unstructured content, building a schema-less index of unified information that can be accessed with a single query, helping you gain deeper insights and detect complex patterns. Unlike a traditional data warehouse, AIE does not require relationships between any data or content to be defined in advance prior to ingestion. AIE also ingests structured data on a table-by-table basis, retaining logical structure and data integrity - unlike other information solutions that "flatten" or denormalize databases, severely diminishing their business value.

Query-time JOIN

AIE's patented query-time JOIN operator allows selection of relationships across tables, connecting common fields to represent one-to-one, one-to-many and many-to-many relationships. AIE extends JOIN to include both data and content and to execute at query time, retrieving any sources that include a shared term and ensuring that the most up-to-date information is included. This JOIN capability does not rely on a data schema set in advance.


AIE supports SQL - the universally adopted query language of data analysis tools. SQL allows precision and complexity far beyond the capabilities of search engine queries and uses standard operators to apply AIE's analytical capabilities across disparate sources. Attivio's AI-SQL extensions go beyond standard SQL - combining the capabilities of relational and search queries and analytics and creating tables on the fly without first defining a schema.

ODBC/JDBC Driver Support

Unlike other enterprise information solutions, Attivio's ODBC/JDBC connectivity enables the integration of AIE with popular business intelligence (BI) tools, complimenting and expanding your organization's BI infrastructure investments.

Advanced Content Analytics

AIE includes a complete set of analytical capabilities that provide deeper insight, including the ability to link unstructured content and structured data, discovery of entities, concepts and key phrases.

Sentiment Analysis

Extracts and measures positive or negative emotions expressed in a document and in specific entities in a document, producing quantifiable data that can be used in trend analysis, charts, etc.

Classification Engine

Automatically categorizes documents using rules or machine-learning-based classification models derived from training documents.

Comprehensive Search Capabilities

AIE supports all standard search methods, including keyword search, +/- syntax, phrase search, fielded search, Boolean matching, wildcards, proximity, fuzzy search and more. AIE also provides spelling suggestions based on indexed content or dictionaries, synonym and acronym expansion, etc.

Custom Relevancy Profiles

Control results with relevancy profiles customized with one or more boosting options. Profiles can be altered on the fly at query time.

Powerful Linguistics Functions

AIE's linguistics capabilities include support for detecting 19 languages.

Advanced Text Extraction

AIE can extract content, metadata and formatting from more than 600 document types, including child and embedded documents. Notable examples include support for Microsoft Office, PDF, XML, HTML, email, image files (for extraction of metadata only) and archive formats (zip, tar, gzip, jar).

Real-Time Updates

AIE is designed for real-time operation. New documents can be added and made available for search in batches of 100 or 1,000 in less than two seconds. Important individual fields can be updated nearly instantly, even under heavy query load, without any need to re-index the entire document.

Real-Time Alerts

Any query AIE can execute can be saved as an alert. Thereafter, on a scheduled or continuous basis, new data that matches the query is automatically sent to a designated workflow, which can execute a simple action, like notifying a user via email, or more sophisticated tasks, such as updating a database or triggering a CRM application.

Flexible & Customizable Workflows

Integrate processing, querying and actions. Workflows can include linear processes, conditional logic (branching), loops for handling embedded objects (e.g., email attachments), multi-node configurations, etc. Time-consuming steps can be offloaded to dedicated hardware asynchronously to allow long, complex processing to run independently without negative impact on the user.


Attivio’s unified information access platform, the Active Intelligence Engine® (AIE), redefines the business impact of our customers’ information assets, so they can quickly seize opportunities, solve critical challenges and fulfill their strategic vision. AIE enables content providers to meet the increasing demands of a content diverse ecosystem through dynamic content distribution.
Attivio correlates disparate silos of structured data and unstructured content in ways never before possible. Offering both intuitive search capabilities and the power of SQL, AIE seamlessly integrates with existing BI and big data tools to reveal insight that matters, through the access method that best suits each user’s technical skills and priorities.
