Autonomy Announces Acquisition of Structured Data Technology

Autonomy Corporation plc and NCorp announced that Autonomy has acquired NCorp from private shareholders. Combining Autonomy’s IDOL technology for unstructured information and NCorp’s technology for structured information allows enterprises to fully integrate the processing and delivery of all enterprise content. Based upon mathematics and pattern matching, NCorp’s Ijen technology puts the database into a multidimensional space in order to enable ‘fuzzy queries’; by putting differing items into a multidimensional space, comparisons can be made by calculating their similarity. Combining Autonomy’s IDOL Server with NCorp’s Ijen technology produces a parametric search capability set which relates n-dimensional structured objects to each other conceptually where no direct field match exists. www.autonomy.com
