Text analytics enables you to extract more business value from unstructured data such as emails, customer relationship management (CRM) records, office documents, or any text-based data. IBM® OmniFind™ Analytics Edition provides rich text analysis capabilities and interactive visualization to enable you to find patterns and trends hidden in large quantities of unstructured information. The text analysis results from OmniFind Analytics Edition are in XML-format and can also be stored, indexed, and queried in a DB2 database. This allows you to incorporate your text analysis results into existing business applications and reporting tools by using regular SQL or SQL/XML queries. This article provides an overview of text analytics with OmniFind Analytics Edition and describes several ways of bringing its analysis results into DB2, in relational or pureXML™ format.
