Enigma Introduces 3C E-Commerce Platform

Enigma introduced its 3C Platform for content-driven e-commerce for the support chain. Through integrated content, commerce and collaboration capabilities, the Enigma 3C Platform enables manufacturers of capital equipment to capture a greater share of highly profitable aftermarket revenues and maintain better post-sale services and support relationships with customers. Equipment operators benefit by realizing greater efficiency in maintenance and operations and through product support, leading to improved equipment utilization and uptime. The 3C Platform allows OEMs; Operators; and Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) facilities to be linked via the Web and customer intranets. The original product content (intellectual property) continues to reside on the OEM’s extranet for aftermarket support and services, however customers can now establish many subsets of the OEM “master” site on intranets behind their firewalls. The customers can then integrate their own content, such as best practices or alternate procedures, to these sites, as well as aggregate other suppliers’ technical information into their intranets. With Enigma’s 3C Platform, the OEM’s Web site and the remote intranet sites can then be directly linked to ERP, e-procurement and order management systems to generate a complete support chain solution. The Enigma 3C Platform consists of the CommunitySight product for Collaboration, and two other sets of packaged solutions addressing Content and Commerce applications. InSight and DynaWeb are distributed content management applications, which automate the aggregation and delivery of multi-format, complex, structured documents. PartSight is Enigma’s dynamic catalog management application, which integrates multiple graphic formats with rich content. Enigma’s Xtend is a content and catalog management suite that allows equipment operators to modify OEM-supplied information for their own intranets. CommerceSight is the core commerce application in the Enigma 3C Platform, which links ERP, MRP, e-procurement and order management systems with the technical information customers need to make aftermarket purchasing decisions. The Enigma 3C Platform is available now. Pricing starts at $250,000.

Autonomy Announces XML Tagger “AXE”

Autonomy Corporation plc announced the release of AXE, a technology that will enable Autonomy’s OEM customers and end-users to overcome the current obstacles in the processing of XML and extend the benefits of information exchange. AXE’s conceptual understanding enables it to automatically insert XML tags and links into documents, based on the concepts contained in the information. This eliminates all manual cost. Secondly, AXE enables XML applications to understand conceptual information, independent of variations in tagging schemas or the variety of applications in use. This means, for example, that legacy data from disparate sources, tagged using different schemas, can be automatically reconciled and operated upon. AXE is a complementary technology to the latest version of Autonomy’s core engine, the Dynamic Reasoning Engine v4.0. It will be made available both to end users and to OEMs. OEMs will embed AXE in their own products as part of the Autonomy Content Infrastructure (ACI), an architecture that enables multiple third party applications to automate the business operations on unstructured data. Preliminary metrics indicate that the AXE-enabled DRE will process XML at speeds of up to 2 gigabytes per hour, the equivalent to 200 documents per second. Operations such as tagging, categorizing and linking are carried out automatically, as hundreds of simultaneous operations occur concurrently.
