In-Q-Tel Signs Deal with Inxight to Enhance Smart Discovery for U.S. Government Customers

Sept. 15, 2003

Inxight™ Software, Inc., a leading provider of software solutions for enterprise search and information discovery, today announced that it has signed a deal with In-Q-Tel, a private not for profit venture group funded by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Inxight will work with In-Q-Tel on the ongoing development of its SmartDiscovery™ software that enables government agencies and enterprises to gather, analyze and share potentially valuable information found in documents written in multiple languages in disparate databases.

“We see Inxight as a key strategic partner, as there is unquestionable value in how their technology, particularly their language capabilities, can help government and commercial organizations identify important information,” said Gilman Louie, CEO of In-Q-Tel. “A critical factor in our decision to work with Inxight is that it has already proven that its solutions deliver ‘high fidelity’ results in very demanding information environments.”

Inxight’s SmartDiscovery is the most complete and scalable information retrieval solution available today. Already in deployment by multiple Federal intelligence, defense and law enforcement agencies, Inxight SmartDiscovery offers a proven solution for analyzing and delivering precise, relevant information from unstructured data sources such as reports, email, news articles and Web page content. Using SmartDiscovery, analysts and law enforcement officers are able to quickly sift through vast amounts of information, in 26 languages, and glean useful insights.  Partnering with In-Q-Tel enables Inxight to further refine and enhance SmartDiscovery.

“Inxight is pleased to be working with In-Q-Tel as both an investor and as a customer,” said John C. Laing, Inxight’s president and CEO. “We see this new relationship as a major accomplishment and a sign of the continued importance of our technology in the nation’s defense and intelligence communities. Our work with government agencies has increased exponentially over the last two years and we look forward to even more growth as a result of our partnership with In-Q-Tel.”
