Autonomy’s IDOL Platform
At the core of Oracle Connector (CFS) is Autonomy’s Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL).
IDOL gathers and processes unstructured, semi-structured, and structured information in any format from multiple repositories using IDOL connectors and a global relational index. It can automatically form a contextual understanding of the information in real time, linking disparate data sources together based on the concepts contained within them. For example, IDOL can automatically link concepts contained in an e-mail message to a recorded phone conversation, which can be associated with a stock trade. This information is then imported into a format that is easily searchable, adding advanced retrieval, collaboration, and personalization to an application that integrates the technology.
For more information on IDOL, refer to the IDOL Getting Started Guide.
