Connotate Named to “40 Vendors We’re Watching in 2011″ by Information Management
List recognizes innovative companies making strides in the data management industry
NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – (April 26th, 2011) – Connotate, Inc., the leading provider of solutions that help companies collect data and content from the Web, today announced that it was named to Information Management’s “40 Vendors We’re Watching in 2011” list. The 40 companies on the list, which recognizes compelling software and services providers in the business intelligence and data management industries, were selected by the SourceMedia publication’s editors and columnists.
“We address a critical piece of the information management puzzle– data collection,” said Tom Meyer, CEO of Connotate. “No matter what the final plans are for the data – whether it be a product, service or another step in the business process value chain — the data monitoring and collection processes are just as important, if not more important, as the resulting deliverable. Connotate enables reliable and scalable data monitoring and collection processes that can be quickly implemented by business users , resulting in data accuracy and productivity gains, allowing your business to keep up with the information explosion across the internet.”
Connotate announced the latest version of its flagship Agent Community Web data monitoring and collection solution in December 2010. Agent Community allows non-technical users to capture and utilize dynamic Web content and data via an easy-to-use patented visual abstraction technique. The latest version includes a powerful patent-pending ‘full story algorithm’ feature which allows organizations to quickly track a specific topic or keyword wherever it is mentioned on the Web, as opposed to tracking specific sources. This feature enables rapid acquisition of URLs and metadata (such as headlines, publication dates and categorization) from large sets of different websites simultaneously.
Additionally, earlier this year Connotate was named to KMWorld’s annual list of the “100 Companies that Matter in Knowledge Management” for the seventh consecutive year. This honor is testament to the company’s focus on balancing business usability with incomparable scale, resilience and capabilities.
“Agility is one of the main differentiators in our list this year,” says Information Management Editor-in-Chief Julie Langenkamp. “Providers that offer rapid deployment of easy-to-use tools suited to a broad audience are very much in demand.”
