Products: iBridge 


Producer: i2 Limited

iBridge provides integration between i2 Analyst's Notebook and customer databases.


iBridge connects the Analyst’s Notebook to a variety of standard relational databases, providing a common environment for retrieving information and performing analysis.

iBridge provides a live, read-only connection, allowing you to explore your database and represent retrieved data in Analyst’s Notebook in the form of entities, links and attributes.

Mappings between database tables and Analyst’s Notebook entity and link types, reflecting the requirements of the analysts who will be extracting information from the database, should be created beforehand with the developer module and stored in configuration file. Configuration files are created by i2 distributors.

iBridge basic facilities

  • Find: allows you to quickly locate single elements in your database. You can enter partial information about the data you require to produce a list of elements that match that criteria and, subsequently, choose the required entity and add it to your analytical chart.

  • Query: allows you to perform simple or complex queries on your database and add the results to your chart. It provides an intuitive means of asking complex questions, enabling you to "draw" your question and set appropriate conditions using easy to use drop down pick lists.

  • Expand: allows you to find out more about data related to items which are already on your chart. You can chart entities from the database that are connected, either directly or indirectly, to the entities already charted. You can specify the types of entities and links and how many levels of information are added.

Advanced visualization and analysis

Interactive exploration provides a virtual window on your chart in which you can interactively browse your database. This enables you to examine data that contains many connections, yet allowing you to chart only relevant information in the area of your interest.

To discover direct and indirect relationships between items on the chart you can use the Find Path facility.

To find information elsewhere in the database that shares common links to the items which are already on your chart you can use the Find Common Neighbors facility.

Connect to multiple databases

It is possible to open connections to several databases at the same time and populate the chart with entities and links from different databases. This may result in a number of occurrences of the same information, such as a person or an organization. You can merge these matching elements into a single chart item. iBridge then enables you to seek out further information about this merged item from each of the separate data sources that constructed it.
