Autonomy buys Verity
Saturday, 05 November 2005
Autonomy founded by Dr. Mike Lynch has pioneered some of the most advanced search software on the planet, except that unlike internet search engines like Google it is designed for enterprise and desktop environments, where links between documents don't necessarily exist, so working out which is the most relevant piece of information in those unstructured environments presents a whole bag of complex issues.
You may also have come across Autonomy unwittingly as the engine inside the highly acclaimed BLINKX desktop search tool.
Dr. Mike Lynch, Autonomy’s group chief executive officer and co-founder, said: "The acquisition will enable us to provide a significantly enhanced product offering to both companies’ clients while continuing to drive innovation in the industry."
