In this final posting in Endeca week, we’re going to look at the process of creating applications using Endeca Latitude, or as it’s now known, Oracle Endeca Information Discovery.
Although the individual steps are different, the process overall isn’t all that different to creating a data latjtude or an Essbase cube. Details and tutorials are a bit thin on the ground, but hopefully with this last post in the blog series, you’ll at least get to see the overall process and the tools that you’ll use.
Before we start enedca, here’s a recap of this week’s posts:. Traditional BI development techniques tend to spend a lot of time at the start, and at the end, of the process. You spend a fair bit of time developing a dimensional model, aggregation rules and strategies, with the actual mechanics of the ETL bit hopefully then being simple. Once you’re done, you spend the rest of the time developing reports, analyses, dashboards and so on.
With Endeca Latitude, the data modeling part, and the dashboard building part, are relatively simple, and it’s the ETL bit that takes the time.
Endeca Latitude Installation Overview
In this blog post, we’re going to look at the first and third steps – using the Endeca Latitude Data Integrator tool, part of Information Integration Suite, to get data into an MDEX engine, and then using Studio to create a search and analysis web application. This is only a high-level look, but we’re also working on a more step-by-step demo that hopefully will run on OTN or a similar site – watch this space.
Using Data Integrator, you either import or create lattitude to your source data, define metadata for it such as the column structure, then create mappings, or “edges” between the source data and either transformation operators, or operators that load data into the MDEX engine. In the screenshot below, you can see a typical “graph” loading data from some source files into an MDEX engine, eendeca the bulk-load writer transformation.
Loading up the MDEX endsca is like loading an Essbase cube, in that all the data you need to use in the analysis will need to be in the MDEX, and depending on how you configure it, either all or part of it will be held in the in-memory cache, with the data being persisted to an column-store, compressed on-disk database.

Once you’ve got some data together, you can then start up the Endeca Studio Server and log into Endeca Studio. Endeca Studio is a web-based environment that presents you initially with a blank canvas, to which you can add pages and Studio components.
Selecting the Components option brings up a dialog listing the various Studio components you can add. Typically, you’d divide the canvas into two columns, the left-hand one thinner than the right-hand, and add search, breadcrumb endeac guided facteted navigation components to this side. Then, you’d start adding visual components such as word clouds, record lists, metrics bars and so on to the main part of the screen.

Once you’ve done the hard work of getting your unstructured, semi-structured and unstructured data into MDEX, parsed and combined it, creating the Studio application is the edeca bit. Typically, ltaitude add some navigation elements to the left-hand side, such as a search bar, breadcrumbs selected criteria area, and the guided navigation control that’s common to most Studio applications:.
Finally, once you’re done, the application would look something like this, with navigation down the side, visualizations on the rest of the page, and multiple pages of information.
As you click on the guided navigation items, the controls on the right are automatically filtered, in a similar way latittude Qlikview, or the new high-speed visualizations provided with Exalytics. If you’re interested in downloading the Endeca Latitude software, it’s now called Oracle Endeca Information Discovery and you can find it for Windows x64 and Linux x64 over at http: Before we start though, here’s a recap of this week’s posts: So Just What endecw Endeca?
A typical flow of tasks for a Latitude project is as follows: First you use Endeca Endeac Integration Suite to load data into the MDEX engine this is the bit that takes the time Then, you use the configuration web service to configure the MDEX record schema and MDEX engine features Next, you create the Latitude Studio application, and then Finally, you use the administration web service to set up monitoring and backups In this blog post, we’re going to look ejdeca the first and third steps – using the Endeca Latitude Data Integrator tool, part of Information Integration Suite, to get data into an MDEX engine, and then using Studio to create a search and analysis web application.
