CAMBRIDGE, England and SAN FRANCISCO, April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a global leader in infrastructure software for the enterprise, today announced that KPMG Meijburg & Co is using Autonomy's IDOL (Intelligent Data Operating Layer) for robust pan-enterprise search and knowledge management. The leading tax consultancy leverages Autonomy's powerful, meaning-based infrastructure to provide a single point of access to all internal and external data repositories, enabling its tax advisors to easily locate all relevant information and achieve significant time and cost savings in their day-to-day activities.
As a longstanding customer of Autonomy, KPMG Meijburg & Co benefits from IDOL's unique conceptual abilities, scalability and seamless connectivity to virtually every data type and repository to extract meaning from millions of documents and identify conceptual links between disparate pieces of information. IDOL delivers KPMG Meijburg's tax consultants all relevant information from numerous sources, such as SharePoint, intranets and the Web, either as relevant and timely results to search queries, or via personalized information delivery models, such as Agents. Understanding users' interests in and expertise on specific topics, Agents allow 24/7 dynamic monitoring of business-critical information through automated alerts, enabling KPMG Meijburg to stay ahead of the competition, while categorization, automatic hyperlinking and clustering allow quick identification of market trends, risks or opportunities.
"The huge volumes of unstructured information that exist across different departments and organizations, in various repositories, is the lifeblood of our industry," commented Robert van der Jagt, Partner at KPMG Meijburg & Co. "Our decision to equip all of our tax professionals with Autonomy's meaning-based information retrieval abilities is a testament to our commitment to properly manage this data and use it in order to enhance the quality of work produced by our company, as well as lead technological innovation in our sector."
"Prompted by increasing pressures to improve employee productivity, the world's leading professional services firms are adopting meaning-based solutions to gain a distinct competitive advantage," said Eric Rousseau, Regional Manager Benelux at Autonomy. "We are delighted to be partnering with KPMG Meijburg & Co in this exciting initiative to transform the way it uses and leverages its many knowledge assets."
