Autonomy Corporation plc announced a new strategic OEM relationship with BEA Systems. Since 2001, BEA Systems has included Autonomy’s technology with its BEA WebLogic Portal to provide their customers information aggregation, retrieval and knowledge management capabilities. Under the new OEM agreement, BEA will embed Autonomy’s technology into its WebLogic Portal. In addition, the agreement allows BEA to expand the reach of information retrieval to external sources including relational databases and the Web. Autonomy technology is used within BEA WebLogic Portal 7.0 to automate the aggregation, analysis and retrieval of both structured and unstructured information from multiple sources.
