Autonomy to power Mexican oil portal

Oil R&D Institute’s portal leverages unstructured data access. Autonomy to offer ‘fuzzy’ queries.

The Instituto Mexicano del Petroleo (IMP) Mexico’s national oil and gas research organization, has selected Autonomy’s Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL) to power its enterprise information portal. The IMP portal supports the IMP’s staff of 4,300 – providing access to information in the Institute’s library.


Ernesto Azuela of the IMP said, ‘Autonomy differentiated itself from other vendors by working with us to promote a paradigm shift in IMP. Instead of our engineers performing time wasting, inaccurate searches, Autonomy pushes the information to them, just when required.’


Autonomy also announced the acquisition of NCorp, a specialist in structured data management. NCorp’s Ijen pattern matching technology puts the database into a multidimensional space in order to enable ‘fuzzy queries.’ Autonomy clients include Shell and the US Dept. of Energy.
