Autonomy unveils new expertise location module for IUS

The new module connects lawyers with other subject matter experts within the firm

By CBR Staff Writer

Autonomy has unveiled a new expertise location module for its iManage Universal Search, the company’s pan-enterprise search application tailored for law firms.

With this new module, lawyers can connect with other subject matter experts within the law firm, enabling the firm to efficiently staff matters and match the right talent with the needs of a case, said Autonomy.

Supported by the company’s meaning based computing platform, IDOL, the iManage Universal Search (IUS) expertise location module supports a law firm’s complete practice support needs – all on a single platform, noted Autonomy.

The company claims that with the combination of IUS and the new expertise location module, lawyers can now not only connect with domain experts from across the firm, they can also effectively connect the dots among related information through conceptual categorization and automatic hyperlinking.

Unlike traditional approaches that rely on manually created biography databases for expertise location, IUS leverages IDOL’s ability to automatically build conceptual profiles of users based on the understanding of information, added Autonomy.

Anthony Bettencourt, CEO of Autonomy Interwoven, said: Autonomy iManage is the de facto standard for delivering information access and management to the world’s most prestigious law firms. The combination of Autonomy’s meaning-based expertise location solution with the IUM solution provides the industry’s most complete knowledge management solution for law firms.
