Ovum Recognizes Autonomy As The Leader In Enterprise Information Access

Research Identifies Current Market Driver As the Need to Quickly Retrieve Information for Business or Legislation-Based Requirements
(PresseBox) (Cambridge, UK and San Francisco, Calif., ) Ovum, the independent analyst and consulting company, has recognized Autonomy (LSE: AU. or AU.L), as the leader in the enterprise information access market, ranked by its market position and breadth of functional scope and appropriateness for the enterprise. The recently released report titled "The Future of Search,"1 also notes that "through the acquisitions in 2007 of the archiving specialist ZANTAZ, and most recently UK records management specialist Meridio, Autonomy has now demonstrated its differences from the rest of the search and discovery pack."

"Information access will become increasingly automated with applications initiating the find/search/discover/retrieval process, and users being unaware of the activity that has been performed," said Mike Davis, Ovum s senior analyst and author of the report. "The majority of the employees do not either have the time or often the skills/training to search efficiently and effectively. Automated enterprise information access is a major opportunity for improving productivity, reducing error and corporate risk."

The report further states that Autonomy "has potentially the highest market awareness for search, and is the first name on most long lists. Autonomy s two 2007 acquisitions give it significant capabilities in the compliance/eDiscovery field."

"This latest Ovum s research further validates Autonomy's leadership in providing next-generation enterprise information access solutions," said Mike Lynch, CEO of Autonomy. "Autonomy is the only company that can deliver automatic Meaning-based Computing technologies that allow global organizations to quickly and accurately retrieve both structured and unstructured information from across the enterprise, regardless of locations and languages."
