Autonomy Unveils Kenjin

Autonomy, Inc., announced Kenjin, a service that automatically delivers information (regardless of its location) to consumers as they use their personal computer. With Kenjin, consumers no longer have to stop what they are doing to search for information. Instead, as they surf the Web, draft an e-mail or write a letter, Kenjin automatically connects and delivers related information from the Web, the hard drive and Kenjin users with similar interests. Kenjin uses Autonomy’s core technology, which is capable of analyzing a piece of text and identifying its main ideas. This technology gives Kenjin the ability to understand the concepts, not keywords, in browsers, e-mail or desktop applications. After conducting a real-time analysis of the text in a Web page, Word document or e-mail message, Kenjin automatically recommends links to relevant information from the Web, the PC or individuals that have opted to share their interests with others. The links are displayed in a small window or a tool bar. Kenjin represents the first time consumers have access to the technology found in Autonomy’s products. Kenjin is expected to be available in May 2000. Consumers will be able to download this free service from Autonomy’s Web site. www.autonomy.com/kenjin

WebVision Launches XML-Based Supply Chain Automation App to Enable EDI

WebVision has launched WEBtropolis XDE (XML Data Exchange), a stand-alone application as well as a complement to existing WEBtropolis products such as ORDERnet, AUCTIONnet, and BIDtropolis. It is the first of WebVision’s applications to become XML-enabled. The product, available today, is designed to help large organizations using Internet technology as an infrastructure for optimizing the supply chain among trading partners, and making it possible for companies to replace Legacy EDI-based systems and processes. For current WebVision customers, WEBtropolis XDE provides a new data interchange format for any of their new or existing WebVision applications. WEBtropolis XDE version 1.0 has the ability to map to different XML document formats such as Biztalk from Microsoft and Rosettanet. By integrating with Biztalk from Microsoft and Rosettanet, WEBtropolis XDE provides WebVision customers with the ability to put all of the XML pieces together. WebVision is initially targeting suppliers and manufacturers with Oracle and MS SQL Server based ERP systems, such as SAGE and Oracle Financials. Such companies are committed to replacing older EDI systems with standard XML to improve their purchasing, distribution, product delivery and dynamic decision-making abilities. Because WEBTropolis XDE is based on XML, WEBTropolis XDE features support for Oracle 8i Applications, requiring little or no programming for integration. WEBtropolis XDE is available for Windows NT and Windows 2000. Minimum system requirements are Pentium III, 1GB of available Hard Drive space and 128 MB of RAM. Price for the application is based on number of CPUs. Cost per CPU is $10,000. www.webvision.com
