A primary challenge in deploying KM solutions is the acquisition of essential information. With billions of Websites and an estimated 600+ billion Web pages, today's most comprehensive source of data and information is the World Wide Web.

Despite the Web's importance, access to it is limited. Search engines index only about 2% of the Web, and are unable to penetrate pages that require inputting information or passwords. Even the largest search engines spider the Web only once every few weeks, thus dynamically-changing information cannot be found.

Further, given the Web's continued growth, there is an over-abundance of data and information; sorting through this sea of information in a timely and usable manner, and filtering out the most useful information and intelligence is time consuming and difficult.

Connotate reduces this knowledge acquisition bottleneck through the use of machine-intelligent Web and database Information Agents™.

Information Agents are unsurpassed in their ability to abstract and deliver precise, normalized data from the Web. Using machine-learning and automation, Connotate has harnessed the Web, transforming it into actionable intelligence and fueling knowledge management applications.

Connotate's Agents are trained to do anything a human can to monitor, extract, process, deliver and integrate information from the Internet, intranets and extranets. The Information Agent Suite™ is a robust and scalable platform, designed for both end users and technologists. An intuitive GUI supports fast, easy configuration of Agents and requires no programming.

Agents deliver precise information to email, pagers, spreadsheets, databases, RSS and other devices. Agents also "XML enable" web sites, making them accessible through a rich web-services API. Connotate Agents can create uniquely powerful solutions for Hedge Funds, Finance, Media/Publishing, Pharmaceuticals, Homeland Security, Business Intelligence and Information Integration.
