Autonomy Corporation plc today announced that Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, with over 2,700 lawyers in 27 business centres around the world, has chosen Autonomy iManage Universal Search (IUS) for all of its content and knowledge management requirements worldwide. Autonomy’s selection means that the FTSE 100 company is now Freshfields’ largest IT supplier. Built upon Autonomy’s core infrastructure software, the Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL), IUS will provide over 6,000 users with instant access to sought-after documents, and alerts to conceptually similar content and experts in the community, while guiding professionals to relevant case matter automatically and in real-time. iManage Universal Search was selected after a competitive procurement owing to IDOL’s unique conceptual capabilities, scalability, and language and format independence.
