CAMBRIDGE, England and SAN FRANCISCO , Oct. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a global leader in infrastructure software for the enterprise, today announced that LogicaCMG, one of Europe's leading IT and business services companies, has awarded its Virage division as the winner of LogicaCMG's "2007 Partners in Innovation" award, a programme commending technology companies for outstanding innovative IT solutions. Virage is recognized by LogicaCMG for its outstanding rich media management and security and surveillance software suite, a decision which followed a competitive selection process, culminating in two days of 'Dragon's Den' style presentations to a panel of industry and commercial experts within LogicaCMG.
Virage's rich media management and intelligent video analytics solutions bring together complementary technologies from multimedia, security and infrastructure specialists. It offers an unrivalled product set capable of television, video, audio and CCTV challenges of any kind. From making television content fully searchable, and accessible via IPTV to supplying and managing complex security systems, Virage has unrivalled experience and expertise.
Established earlier this year, LogicaCMG's "Partners in Innovation" award builds on the company's reputation as a leading innovator in IT and business services and its role as a champion of bringing innovation into the IT industry. The programme aims to bring new technology solutions to market and to recognize the essential role that the winning companies play in driving real IT innovation and customer satisfaction to clients. With this award, Virage will gain immediate access to LogicaCMG's established global resource, and go-to-market support, as well as opportunities to engage with LogicaCMG's client organizations, where appropriate.
Kevin Duffey , LogicaCMG's UK Sales and Marketing director, said: "Often innovation is developed for innovation's sake, particularly in the world of IT. Real innovation only works if it is brought to market in the right way and delivers actual business benefit to an organization or user. Our focus on applied innovation puts us in the best position to work alongside companies, like Virage, to make sure that their technologies are leveraged by more companies."
One of the key values of Virage Security and Surveillance lies in its ability to monitor vast quantities of intelligence from multiple content sources. By using advanced analytics capabilities, the Virage solutions deliver conceptual intelligence-based associations between multiple pieces of data. The software's intelligent behavioral analysis can also be deployed to provide enhanced real-time scene analysis and detection capability - tools that complement LogicaCMG's existing security offerings and will help to ensure the faster identification of suspect packages and activity in a surveillance environment.
Virage's solutions will now be fast tracked to some of LogicaCMG's key customers with a requirement for advanced rich media management and intelligent video analytics in the areas of knowledge management, compliance and security. The end result will be to deliver business innovation to LogicaCMG's clients and expansion into new markets for Virage, facilitating significant revenue generation opportunities for both organizations.
"LogicaCMG's "Partners in Innovation" award is a further testimony to the technological leadership and innovation that Virage brings to the market," said David Humphrey , CEO of Virage Security and Surveillance. "We look forward to further strengthening our relationship with LogicaCMG as we work closer together in the future."
