You can create any type of application or plug-in that you want in any language. We’re looking for innovative solutions that have real world business applications.

IDOL OnDemand is available to developers in an Early Access program, and they’re exposing the capabilities of HP IDOL (Intelligent Data Operating Layer), the world’s leading on-premise human information processing engine, as a managed solution to deliver a broad selection of web services to developers.

Get Started

The true power of IDOL OnDemand is evident when you start to combine the APIs. Consume IDOL OnDemand Indexing APIs to index your unstructured data from social media, mobile devices, CMS, Google docs, Dropbox, email, SharePoint or other sources. Once indexed, analyze and augment your content, using IDOL OnDemand APIs such as Speech Recognition, OCR, Sentiment Analysis, Extract Entity, Face Detection, Barcode Recognition and Text Extraction. IDOL OnDemand’s Speech Recognition API now supports seven languages. Finally, leverage IDOL OnDemand Search APIs to find what you need and shine light on dark data with advanced search options such as Find Similar, Query Text Index, Find Facets, Clusters or Terms. Or you can develop a predictive model with IDOL OnDemand’s Train Prediction and Predict API’s.
