Autonomy Enters ECM/WCM with Interwoven Acquisition

Just when I was getting bored watching this market – Interwoven announced today that they are being acquired by Autonomy. The mamoth search vendor driving consolidation in a slightly new direction. We’ve seen a number of acquisitions as ECM is incorporated into the portfolios of traditional hardware vendors.(IBM/FileNet, EMC/Documentum,HP/Tower) This is interesting because there have been many more instances of search technologies being acquired by content management vendors – not the other way around.  This deal will give us a great deal to talk about in the next few weeks like – does this put any more pressure on Vignette to find a suitor?
