Selected for Innovative Unified Information Access Solution
Newton, MA, May 20, 2009 - Attivio, Inc. today announced that it has been selected as a winner of the Red Herring 100 North America Award. The Red Herring editorial team deploys a detailed process to whittle down a pool of 1,000 eligible, promising companies to the 200 finalists and in a last round decides the top 100 winners of this important North American award. Evaluations are made on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, innovation, management, global strategy and ecosystem integration. The winners, elite executives and venture capital leaders from North America, celebrated the Top 100 Privately Held Companies in San Diego, May 11-14, 2009.
Attivio was selected by the Red Herring editorial team for its innovative Active Intelligence EngineTM (AIE), the first Unified Information Access platform to provide a complete view of the relevant information landscape, using information-driven workflow and real-time updates to deliver insight on all types of content, when and where it is needed. With AIE, applications and solutions provide users with precise, structured analytics and conceptual, linguistic exploration in any context, independent of the structure of the underlying data.
"This designation as a Red Herring 100 winner is a notable distinction and high honor," said Ali Riaz, CEO of Attivio. "We have always placed significant emphasis on the business criteria evaluated during the selection process, particularly in the areas of innovation and strategy execution. The experience and passion of the Attivio team have allowed us to take a forward-thinking approach that transforms the legacy practice of maintaining separate and costly enterprise search and business intelligence systems."
