Copyvio[edit]

The lead section appears to be taken almost verbatim from this. Vicenarian (Said · Done) 18:45, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

By "we," do you mean to say your account is for a group or company? Vicenarian (Said · Done) 18:57, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Reads like Advertising Copy[edit]

This article reads more like advertising copy then an encyclopedia article. For example, a sale of the company called Verity to another company called Autonomy is reported to have occurred "recently." Of course, "recently" recedes quickly to the past as time moves forward. In this case recently refers to 2005. Other errors include NASDAQ links to companies no longer listed and outdated resume information which itself is overly detailed and inappropriate for an encyclopedia article. I would change it, but Wikipedia articles now have owners and all I could expect would be a reversion and an admonition regarding "vandalism." Even though Wikipedia is for me probably the website I use most, I quit donating to Wikipedia years ago because of this kind of nonsense. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.30.69.83 (talk) 16:48, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
