National Procurement Partner for all UK Public Services Awards Autonomy a Place on Digital Continuity Framework Agreement

CAMBRIDGE, England and SAN FRANCISCO, March 1, 2011 - Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a global leader in
infrastructure software for the enterprise, today announced it has been
awarded a place to provide Digital Archiving Solutions through Lot 7 of the
recently-launched framework agreement for Digital Continuity by Buying
Solutions, the national procurement partner for all UK public services.
Buying Solutions aims to facilitate public sector buying processes by
maintaining a shortlist of proven suppliers and their products and services,
and is part of the Cabinet Office's Efficiency and Reform Group.

This agreement certifies Autonomy as a key partner in enabling
e-government and helping to maximize value for government departments and
across the wider public sector through efficient procurement.

Autonomy successfully responded to a competitive tender process for
Digital Archiving Solutions. A key factor in the selection was Autonomy's
unique meaning-based technology, which automatically recognizes concepts and
patterns across all data types, languages and repositories. Additionally, the
Autonomy Consolidated Archive (ACA), which provides a single platform for
Enterprise Digital Information Capture, Records Management and Digital
Archive and Preservation, ensures security, reliability, and compliance.

Based on Autonomy's cornerstone technology, IDOL (Intelligent Data
Operating Layer), the Autonomy Consolidated Archive not only ensures
regulatory compliance with both national and EU legislation, but enables
government entities to control and access structured, semi-structured and
unstructured content on a single, centrally-managed system. In order to
ensure appropriate preservation and disposal management, the solution also
offers transparent collaboration, version control, retention management and
automated workflow processes, as well as the ability to retrieve contents
easily and intuitively, based on the concepts found within all archived

"This agreement demonstrates Autonomy's long-term commitment to the UK
government in the drive for increased efficiency and economic streamlining in
the public sector," said Glenn Perachio, VP Autonomy Protect solutions EMEA.
"The Buying Solutions framework agreement for Digital Continuity represents
true innovation for the government, allowing public sector organizations at
all levels access to an effective programme to support the procurement and
deployment of our award-winning records management solutions. We look forward
to collaborating with organizations across the public sector to help them
reduce costs, improve efficiency and stay agile in the years ahead."
