World-Leading Energy Company Selects Autonomy IDOL and Autonomy Virage
CAMBRIDGE, England and SAN FRANCISCO, July 19, 2011 - Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a global leader in infrastructure software for the enterprise, today announced that Repsol, Spain's largest oil and gas company, has selected Autonomy's cornerstone technology, IDOL (Intelligent Data Operating Layer) and Autonomy Virage for knowledge management across the enterprise.
Repsol is one of the world's ten largest privately-owned integrated oil and gas companies, with activities in more than thirty countries. Based in Spain, Repsol is present in every part of the business chain. Its oil and gas production is around a million barrels a day. It operates four chemical plants and nine refineries in the world, and handles over 50 million tons of crude oil that is transformed into a wide range of products, which the company distributes and sells through an extensive sales network of about 7,000 service stations.
IDOL's unique conceptual abilities, scalability and seamless connectivity to virtually every data type and repository will provide Repsol with a cutting-edge enterprise search tool that removes vast amounts of manual effort traditionally involved in retrieving and extracting value from electronic information. Autonomy's enterprise search will enable Repsol employees to search across different departments and operating systems, geographic locations and languages, in order to find timely, relevant information, regardless of data type or format. Additional capabilities include delivering personalized information through Agents, which understand users' interests and monitor business-critical information to provide automated alerts, as well as categorization, automatic hyperlinking and conceptual clustering, all helping Repsol work more efficiently and quickly identify market trends, risks or opportunities.
In addition to IDOL, Repsol also selected Autonomy Virage, Autonomy's world-leading video and audio analysis technology. Autonomy Virage's unique ability to understand specific content and context of all rich media information, whether an audio recording, video clip or transcription, allows companies to quickly discover and leverage their rich media content.
"As a world leader in our sector, we need to ensure we have an efficient Knowledge Management system that not only supports but boosts our business, and contributes to its success," said Domingo Valhondo, Knowledge Management Manager at Repsol. "We chose Autonomy as the only provider that allows us to harness all our electronic information on one platform - including our rich media data - and use it to its best advantage in order to improve the productivity of our employees across multiple business units, and, ultimately, stay competitive."
"We are excited to be working with one of Spain's premier companies, helping it to intelligently manage its data and deliver true innovation to the organization," said Nigel Hutchinson, VP of Autonomy Power solutions EMEA. "Autonomy's vision is to enable organizations to interact with information in the most efficient way possible in order to draw the maximum business benefit - by allowing computers to understand meaning - and Repsol is at the forefront of that movement."
