CXAIR

We’re not a SQL, OLAP or in-memory tool, we’re BI in a Search Engine which means faster, easier analytics for everyone

Simple Querying

Most people are familiar with search engines and use them to explore vast amounts of information available on the internet. Using CXAIR, users are able to use the same ‘natural language’ queries to interrogate all of the information in their organisation.

Rather than scrolling through pages of results, CXAIR provides users with the option of rapidly filtering results, using drop—lists and a ‘click and select’ approach on values returned to go from millions of records to the results of interest within a matter of seconds.

To use the product requires no technical querying or report writing skills; CXAIR enables users to answer business queries rapidly with the minimum amount of fuss, in a completely secure environment.

Linking Data

CXAIR allows the user to effectively query large quantities of data across the enterprise, commonly in unconnected and disparate data sources. CXAIR seamlessly links data sources together to allow reporting and analysis of data across previously disconnected databases and data respositories. Data can be automatically linked together using common identifiers or by physically merging data together into a composite search index.

Business intelligence (BI) technology holds out much promise, but experience would tend to indicate that it can be difficult to use, requiring specialist skill and imposing considerable latency between need and information delivery. Connexica addresses these issues for many business needs and the ease-of-use has to be seen to be appreciated. Connexica offers something very different to the traditional and often arcane BI toolset.

Why Search Powered Business Analytics?

Visualise Your Data

There are many powerful visualisation tools available within CXAIR. For example, users can build insightful queries using VENN diagrams quickly and easily, seeing the relationships between data that would normally be reserved for technical staff. They can then ‘drill through’ to view the underlying data.

Dynamic views can be created to be utilised within VENN diagrams. This provides a whole new dimension to VENN querying; for example, instead of dealing at a transactional level you can group and roll—up the data to provide an alternative view.

With drill through, the relevant data can then be printed, exported into a separate application such as an email or SMS gateway to produce an instant, targeted mailing list. VENN diagrams can be saved, and published within user groups for rapid information collaboration across the organisation without duplication of effort.

Dashboards

Users can easily design and build dynamic and highly visual dashboards that provide high—level overviews of tabular and cross—tabular data. Using the in—built search and filtering, generic dashboards can be created that provide simple overviews of data that change when the user applies various filters.

This approach dramatically reduces the number of dashboard views an organisation needs to produce and makes using and administering the system so much easier. CXAIR also includes features that allow organisations to tie location based information to areas on a chart or map without needing to implement or pay for a complete GIS system.
