Know your data, get your own information with Smart Intelligence

Smart Intelligence ensures easy access to enterprise structured data using pre-built analysis, thus ensuring full control over your data thanks to advanced ad-hoc and self-service capabilities. Knowage Smart Intelligence provides the opportunity to work with traditional data sources, even combining more, to build analysis such as interactive cockpits, reports and multidimensional analysis (OLAP). The product supports the IT staff managing enterprise environment with multitenant and complex metadata. At the same time, it enables the end user to freely inquire his own data space and produce self-made analysis and visualizations.


Interactive cockpits enable data exploration and self-service reporting. By combining data and widgets, every business user can build his own dashboard in a few minutes.

A metamodel is a logical business view over the technical storage system which organizes data. Once it has been defined by a technical user who well knows data and visibility rules, then the metamodel can be freely used by end users to inquire data, forgetting questions about their structure.
