Autonomy's technology will easily integrate related information from the disparate sources. Through the portal, users will have personalized access to information such as financing, insurance, market research, promotion programs and counseling.

In the future, Autonomy's profiling technology will help users identify other experts on-line, creating powerful communities of interest and enabling collaboration.

"With a constantly-changing international business environment, having up-to-the minute data is absolutely essential to today's global business," said Richard Gaunt, Autonomy's chief technology officer and co-founder. "Because Autonomy's technology can understand and process any format of document automatically, government employees don't have to worry about delays or manually adding documents and information to the system. If someone creates it, and it is relevant, Autonomy will find it."
