Following the market trading of October 6th, there has been some concern about the fate of Autonomy (news, site) when its shares plummeted by 16%, raising speculation that it would fall prey to one of the many predators out on the market at this time.
However, with the release of its Q3 figures, which show a rise of 10% in revenues, compared to the same quarter last year, to US$ 211 million and confirmation that a major acquisition will be announced this fall, the future looks brighter than some analysts were predicting earlier this month.

It’s probably no surprise that a recent IDC (news, site) report identified Autonomy as the biggest search and e-Discovery vendor in the market at the moment. No surprise, that is, because it just keeps adding to ways it provides companies with e-Discovery capabilities. The most recent is the introduction of its new Meaning Based Coding of e-Discovery.

This week is dominated by e-Discovery with the release of new software from Autonomy that the company says will dramatically cut times and costs in legal review, while IBM and PSS Systems integrate for better legal hold. Social media and compliance is also the target of a new release from LiveOffice.

You could never accuse Autonomy (news, site) of letting the grass grow under its feet. Only a month after it announced it was buying CA’s (news, site) information governance business, it has closed the deal despite indications at the time that this would take some months. And it has already integrated its IDOL search platform into what was CA’s Message Manager.

We’ve been exploring Web Engagement Management (WEM) perspectives lately. This time we look at the role that Digital Asset Management (DAM) plays in engagement. And based on my experiences, I'll put a stake in the ground and say that most organizations and DAM vendors are missing out on the potential DAM+WEM love.

The jump from previous Autonomy (news, site) WorkSite 8.x builds to Autonomy Worksite 8.5 is huge. With the initial release of 8.5 and a series of updates, including a service pack, the product has undergone many important changes. In fact, there are so many changes in this release that it really begs a more appropriate version, i.e. 9.0.
