Unstructured information represents the largest, most current, and fastest growing source of information that is available today. This information exists in many different sources such as call center records, repair reports, product reviews, e-mails, and many others. The text analysis features of IBM® InfoSphere™ Warehouse can help you uncover the hidden value in this unstructured data. This series of articles covers the general architecture and business opportunities of analyzing unstructured data with the text analysis capabilities of InfoSphere Warehouse. The integration of this capability with IBM Cognos® reporting enables people across the company to exploit the text analysis results. This first article introduces the basic architecture of the text analysis feature in InfoSphere Warehouse and includes a technical example showing how to extract concepts from text using regular expressions.
