Autonomy to acquire Interwoven
"Autonomy announced last week that it will acquire Interwoven for 775 M$ in cash.
Very promising synergy between a company providing state-of-the art document and content understanding technologies, and a leader in Electronic Content Management (ECM). This will allow more automatic tagging and content analysis of your documents, directly as they enter your ECM system. Furthermore, this is a very good way for Autonomy to reinforce its position into the exploding eDiscovery space.
This is a synergy that only a few companies can provide today. Xerox very well positioned for this, with its Litigation Services branch, its Docushare ECM solution, possibly combined in the future with some of its unique “meaning extraction” technologies such as Factspotter."
