As per the title of this post: Interwoven Announces Definitive Agreement to be Acquired by Autonomy.
Many law firms in Canada (and the United States) use Interwoven for their document management system (DMS). Interwoven is a very robust DMS that can manage large volumes of documents while keeping good version control and honoring security settings. However, up to and including version 8.2, many users complain that its search capabilities were too arcane (searching has been improved with version 8.3 which involved Interwoven incorporating Vivisimo search technology). Plus, Interwoven’s Universal Search product appears to be getting good buzz.
As such, I was a bit surprised (but I guess pleased) to see the proposed merger with Autonomy.
It goes to show, in part, the importance of search.
