Multidimensional Content eXploration

Content Management Systems (CMS) store enterprise data such as insurance claims, insurance policies, legal documents, patent applications, or archival data like in the case of digital libraries. Search over content allows for information retrieval, but does not provide users with great insight into the data. A more analytical view is needed through analysis, aggregations, groupings, trends, pivot tables or charts, and so on. Multidimensional Content eXploration (MCX) is about effectively analyzing and exploring large amounts of content by combining keyword search with OLAP-style aggregation, navigation, and reporting.
