Bob Eve Vice President Marketing and David Besemer CTO at Composite Software were first up this afternoon and they are rolling out the Composite Discovery Appliance a product aimed at business analysts, managers and analytical business professionals. It does structured data search and works like a search engine.

The system interface looks a lot like a Google search box, the results from a search resemble standard search results except these results contain tables that contain what your looking for, the cool thing is that the algorithm behind the search is smart enough to identify relationships between different sources and tables. So if you enter "Widget", "Shawn", "Acme" the top result will have all three tables combined "Product', "Sales Rep" and "Customer" and when you select that top result you will get the report along with relationship navigation for the data behind it. The part that the user doesn't see is the query with three way table join that makes the final results possible...way cool.

After running the search you can save the results and the saved reports will then show up in future search results. This also enables sharing of reports by everyone on the system. The solution is appliance based so its hardware and software combined and pre-configured. The pricing model is smart too, perpetual for 150K plus support or subscription for $7,500 for initial set up 4k per month.
