The project is overseen by a joint venture company which includes Saab, Ericsson, IBM and Boeing.
Autonomy was chosen for the technologys unique ability to form a conceptual and contextual understanding of the meaning of a document and use this to perform advanced operations, such as automatic profiling, alerting, agents, query guidance, clustering and summarisation. Autonomys dynamic hyperlinking and automatic, personalized channel generation were also particularly significant factors in the decision, as the software will be used to capture and deliver findings from various research programs around the world.
When consulting it is imperative that the solutions we suggest provide consistent performance and are flexible enough to meet all the needs of our clients, commented Mr Peter Thornstrm, managing director of SAAB-Ericsson Network Based Defense Innovation AB. We chose Autonomy because of the unrivalled completeness of solution they offered, its user-centric approach, and its proven efficiency and reliability in the field.
Autonomys fully scalable and language-independent software will be used across vast repositories of documents in both Swedish and English. Employees will be able to track every document in the system, check for duplicate information and discover any shortfalls and missing information. With Autonomys advanced enterprise search capabilities, users will also be able to cross-reference all relevant material to check the viability of any decisions and ensure that no discrepancies exist between current and previous work.
Mike Lynch, CEO of Autonomy Systems, said: Autonomys software is used by various defense organizations around the world to create a more effective intelligence architecture.
