Recently acquired by Import.io, Connotate included for its ability to turn data into actionable insights with real business value
Saratoga, Calif. – March 14, 2019 – Import.io’s Connotate, a leader in web data extraction for corporate enterprises, today announced that it has been named to the KMWorld 2019 list of 100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management. Published in KMWorld’s March 2019 edition, the list has been compiled by editors, analysts, experts, and users over the course of the year and recognizes the most important companies addressing the evolving demands of knowledge management.
This special list honors the contributions of solution providers like Connotate who are uniquely innovative and effective in helping customers address the evolving challenges and opportunities of digital transformation. Connotate was acquired by Import.io, the leading Web Data Integration solution provider, in February 2019 to further solidify its market leadership position in the emerging Web Data Integration category. Total spend on Web Data Integration is estimated to hit $5 billion in 2019 and, by acquiring Connotate, Import.io gained innovative technology, outstanding talent and blue-chip customers to further accelerate growth to meet the growing demand for its solution.
“We are thrilled that Connotate was recognized as one of the 100 companies that matter in knowledge management in 2019 by KMWorld,” said Gary Read, CEO of Import.io. “Data has become the world’s most valuable resource. We are introducing a new philosophy, Web Data Integration, that empowers businesses to take full advantage of the largest world’s data source, the internet, for business-critical purposes. With Web data integration, our mission is to make web data a first-class citizen in the data access and integration workflow ensuring that data quality, control and preparation is treated with the same high regard as internal data sets. Acquiring Connotate and its web data extraction technology plays a critical role in our mission.”
This is the 16th consecutive year that KMWorld has issued its list.
“The 2019 KMWorld 100 list spans a wide variety of companies that are each addressing the evolving demands of knowledge management,” said Tom Hogan, Group Publisher of KMWorld. “Some are long-standing companies with well-established offerings that have evolved over time, while others are much more recent entrants to the field. In selecting organizations to be included on the list, we consider insights gleaned from our own interactions with companies during interviews and events, how they have succeeded in helping customers solve business problems, and we review product updates to make sure that capabilities are advancing to address evolving requirements.”
