TeamSite will run on Autonomy's Intelligent Data Operating Layer (Idol) platform, allowing new functionality such as the conceptual understanding of content, and the ability to gain a holistic view of customers by pulling together data from web, instant messaging, email and call centre channels, according to Autonomy chief executive Mike Lynch.
"It's important because you get pin-for-pin compatibility. You don't lose any functionality," he explained. "But because it's Idol, there is a big increase in scalability. Search is 10 times faster."
Lynch added that Autonomy has been able to make the announcement so speedily because Idol is already in over 500 other software products, and is therefore designed to be integrated quickly into products.
"In the next couple of months you will start to see some extra functionality, " he said. "We hope this moves the market up to the next level."
