Autonomy, Inc. announced the establishment of offices in Washington, D.C. and Boston. Autonomy has named six new hires for marketing and sales: Dan Buan, Darlene G. Hines, Rita Joseph, Mitchell Logan and Julie Hartigan in the Washington, D.C. office and Allyson Miller in the Boston office. The eastern regional division will report directly to Steve Jaffee, director of eastern region, while the federal division reports to Jon Wilks, vice president of sales. Autonomy develops software that automatically organizes large, unstructured volumes of information into personally relevant communications to help corporate intranets and commercial websites serve the changing needs and interests of users. The intelligent pattern recognition technology that fuels Autonomy’s software was originally developed by Autonomy’s sister company, Neurodynamics, for use in intelligence and defense applications.
