Connotate, Inc., the leading provider of solutions that help companies collect data and content from the Web, today announced that KMWorld, an information provider serving the knowledge management systems market, selected Connotateâs Agent Community GEN2TM as a âTrend-Setting Product of 2010â for the fifth consecutive year.
Connotate enables their clients to monitor and collect data from almost any Web source, including the âDeep Web.â And, unlike other Web data collection solutions, Connotate offers a simple point-and-click tool that enables non-technical users to aggregate Web data faster and more reliably than a programming-based approach that requires HTML knowledge and scripting. Connotate is language-agnostic and returns data formatted and categorized based on the userâs preference, meaning that organizations can identify terms, groups or subjects they wish to track, identify desired sources and receive near real-time information updates, regardless of source language, in an easily modifiable digital format.
Connotate can also monitor and retrieve data in real-time from external databases, information repositories, email servers and legacy applications. With Agent Community, organizations have an entire world of information at their disposal â with data refreshed as often as they choose, from as many sources as they choose. Agent Community can help overworked non-technical employees in industries as varied as market data providers, content aggregators, media and government to maximize their productivity.
âBeing named to KMWorldâs Trend-setting product list for the fifth straight year is testament to our commitment to deliver scalable, reliable, easy-to-use solutions designed for the non-technical user, providing them with the ability to derive strategic value from the flood of Web data on which they rely,â says Vince Sgro, CTO of Connotate. âUnlike some solutions which require users to think like programmers and have basic knowledge of HTML, Connotateâs Agent Community is designed with our patented visual abstraction technology that lets users literally âpoint and clickâ to build information Agents in seconds. This enables users to quickly tap into the wealth of data the Agents deliver and put the power of information assets into the hands of the business user.â
According to Hugh McKellar, KMWorld editor-in-chief, âThis year, more than 600 products were assessed by our judging panel, which consists of editorial colleagues, analysts, system integrators, vendors themselves (sometimes even competitive ones), line-of-business managers and users. Connotateâs solution stands out for being truly accessible to business users, easy-to-use, resilient and extremely scalable.â
