Micro Focus today announced that it has been recognized as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Document-Oriented Text Analytics Platforms, Q2 2022 report for its unified AI-based data analytics platform, IDOL. For Micro Focus, the 2022 recognition demonstrates the success of IDOL's ongoing strategy in addressing diverse use cases for extracting maximum data value and delivering holistic insights to accelerate better business decisions.

In its evaluation, Forrester reviewed a dozen document-oriented text analytics platforms and assessed the strengths and weaknesses of each offering based on a comprehensive set of evaluation criteria grouped into three categories: current offering, strategy and market presence.

The report states, "IDOL's strengths include document capture, including one of the most comprehensive document-focused data integration and document-workflow orchestration capabilities (partially based on Apache NiFi), native image analytics, comprehensive NLU (over 1,000 entities), a multitude of OOTB ontologies for data enrichment, document level text analytics, and secure handling of sensitive data (including PII redaction in audio, images, and video)."

"Micro Focus IDOL's ability to comprehensively address all unstructured data analytics needs is unmatched. "We believe IDOL's proven performance has earned it recognition as a Leader from Forrester."

Data Integration Platform Dataddo Launches First-Ever Free Plan with No Extraction Limits

Dataddo | September 28, 2022

Dataddo, an SaaS startup that provides an automated, no-code data integration platform, today announced the launch of its Free plan—the first-ever free data integration plan with no extraction limits. This is a no-investment way for any professional, regardless of technical skill, to access and start working with data from disparate sources. The plan comes as a response to company cultural obstacles that hinder adoption of data initiatives within organizations across industries, such as low data literacy. For at least the last five years, the grand majority of leading companies across industries has been investing in data initiatives, with the percentage today being as high as 97%. Yet only 26.5% of these companies claim to actually be data-driven. Mounting evidence suggests that the main reason for this discrepancy is company culture, meaning both lack of executive buy-in on initiatives and lack of employee confidence in data skills. In a recent survey by Accenture of 9,000 employees from companies across industries, nearly three quarters of respondents (74%) claimed to feel “overwhelmed or unhappy when working with data.” This is critical because, as Gartner states, “the real drivers of [data-driven culture] are the people.” Dataddo’s Free plan aims to help businesses overcome these obstacles by making it easier for them to share data and familiarize employees with visualization tools before investing in paid tools. The plan is the first free data integration plan on the market that puts no cap on extraction limits, and it can be used for an unlimited period of time. Under the plan, subscribers can access any ten of Dataddo’s 200+ connectors and automate the synchronization of any volume of marketing, sales, financial, and other cloud data to up to three dashboarding applications and/or Google Sheets weekly. The company offers a growing library of free templates for popular dashboarding applications, enabling professionals with any level of data skill to start analyzing immediately. The platform is SOC 2 Type II certified and compliant with all major data privacy laws around the globe, including ISO 27001, GDPR for Europe, CCPA and HIPAA in the US, LGPD for Brazil, POPIA for South Africa, and more.
