Exalead CloudView Named a KMWorld Trend-Setting Product of the Year

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - September 1, 2009) - Exalead, a global leader of search solutions and information access software in the enterprise and on the Web, today announced that it has been named a KMWorld Trend-Setting Product for 2009 for the fourth year in a row.

The Trend-Setting Products awards began in 2003. This year more than 800 products were assessed by KMWorld's judging panel, which consists of editorial colleagues, analysts, system integrators, the vendors themselves, line-of-business managers, and users.

"For the fourth year in a row, Exalead's solution has impressed us with its speed, scalability and the ability to unify different information sources," said Hugh McKellar, KMWorld editor in chief. "The company's innovative approach to search is both what brings value to its customers and what keeps it on our judges' radar year after year."

Exalead CloudView™ uses advanced semantic technologies to bring structure, meaning and accessibility to previously unused or under-utilized data in the disparate, heterogeneous enterprise information cloud. The system collects data from virtually any source, in any format, and transforms it into structured, pervasive, contextualized building blocks of business information that can be directly searched and queried, or used as the foundation for a new breed of lean, innovative information access applications.

"We are pleased that KMWorld Magazine's panel of judges recognizes just how powerful search technology can be in reinventing knowledge management, business intelligence, and data integration," said Paul Doscher, CEO of Exalead. "Search-based applications built upon Exalead's platform enable immediate action and decision-making across the entire enterprise as opposed to merely providing more content for research. This is why the demand for search-based applications continues to increase as companies seek innovative ways to better solve their specific business needs."
