ClearForest and Business Objects Partner to Extend BI Reporting and Search with Text Analytics

Business Objects Insight Americas 2006 – SAN FRANCISCO – Nov. 6, 2006 – ClearForest, the world leader in business solutions enabled by text analytics, today announced a Technology Partnership with Business Objects (Nasdaq: BOBJ), the world’s leading provider of business intelligence (BI) solutions. As a member of the Business Objects Technology Partner Program, ClearForest will work with Business Objects to create structure from text sources for reporting, contextual search, and faceted navigation within BusinessObjects™ XI Release 2. The partnership is a result of the new Business Objects Open Search Initiative (OSI), a partner network of leading text analytics, enterprise search, and consulting companies designed to help customers find answers hidden in textual sources.

ClearForest’s text analytics solution provides business users with insights previously trapped in text sources like call center notes, claims, e-mail, surveys, news articles, press releases, blogs or any database text field. From these unstructured sources, ClearForest can derive meaning about products, technologies, companies & people, plus relationships like complaints, compliments, M&A activity, and management changes, and more. ClearForest unifies this new data from text with existing structured data and makes it available for analysis and visualization from BusinessObjects XI Release 2. In addition, the newly derived data can be used to enable field or contextual searches and as facets in guided navigation. Analyzing the combination of text and data enables early warning for quality issues, increases visibility of customer loyalty and satisfaction problems, and fuels product innovation.
