Coemergence Inc., a leader in the development of knowledge-based software, is pleased that its ACIS solution has been recognized by KMWorld Magazine as a 2005 “Trend Setting” product.
ACIS allows companies to gain a strategic advantage over their competitors by helping to quickly identify and act on industry shifts, patterns and trends that reveal emerging opportunities and threats, before they are made public.
After evaluating more than 200 vendors worldwide with over 1200 separate offerings, the KMWorld selection committee, comprised of editors, industry analysts and knowledge management product users, ranging from C-level executives to entry-level knowledge workers, selected ACIS as a winner. Criteria for the award included usability, flexibility, adoption rate and total cost of ownership. While some vendors were recognized for their collection of offerings, some were noted for a compelling new version of an existing product.
“The KMWorld award has furthered our positioning in the knowledge management marketplace. We are delighted with the positive feedback on the recent release of ACIS 5.0 from customers, editors, analysts and partners,” said Coemergence director of marketing and communications, Nadine Tanner. “ACIS addresses some unique challenges faced by growth-related knowledge professionals by providing an innovative means to capture human intelligence and provide a new level of competitive advantage.”
ACIS captures the human or “water-cooler” intelligence that exists in the discussions people have with clients, partners, suppliers, peers, consultants and others in the marketplace. Once entered into ACIS, this intelligence is woven together with structured and unstructured information. The solution’s real-time alerting functionality distributes relevant information to the people who need to know it, providing them with the immediate insights and strategic early warning signals necessary in today’s rapidly changing business and industry environments.
“It’s been a prosperous year of growth and development for Coemergence,” says Hugh McKellar, editor in chief at KMWorld. “ACIS’ new features have increased its flexibility and enhanced its design and usability. That, along with Coemergence’s growing customer base led to ACIS’ special recognition.”
Earlier this year, Coemergence gained recognition from Branham Group as one of Canada’s “Top IT Up and Comers.”
Coemergence's customers comprise a growing number of Fortune 1000 companies including ConocoPhillips, De Beers, Gold Fields, Newmont Mining and Occidental Petroleum. ACIS is currently being adapted for aerospace and defense, telecommunications, pharma and biotech, medical devices, financial services and other highly competitive industry sectors.
Coemergence will be exhibiting at the InfoX, Business Intelligence Conference in New York, New York, September 27-28, 2005, and at the KMWorld & Intranets Conference in San Jose, California, November 15-17, 2005.
A complete listing of 2005 Trend Setting products is published in the September 2005 issue of KMWorld and online at WWW.KMWORLD.COM.
