Endeca Information Discovery (EID) is a data discovery tool that helps business analysts to rapidly explore relevant data. If you are already using Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) and wish to reuse the BI data models from Endeca Information Discovery, here are the options. The primary difference between both tools is that one is used for pre-defined analytics while the other is used for having a conversation with your data (analytics vs information discovery). The overall goal for both approaches is to get the most value out of the data available.

How can I create and maintain a single environment for existing BI content and new Oracle BI Apps content?
The popularity of the Oracle BI Applications (OBIA) is growing, thanks to the millions of customers who have experienced and appreciated the value it can deliver. But a common question still remains unanswered - "What do I do with my existing business intelligence content?" Most wish to avoid having separate environments for Oracle BI Applications and their other, non-OBIA, Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) and third-party BI content.
What is Cache?
Analytics systems reduce database calls by creating a ‘Cache’ of data on the same machine as the Analytics engine. Caching has a small cost in terms of disk space to store and a small number of I/O transactions on the server, but this cost is easily outweighed by the improvement in response time.
