Engenia developes Unity, which is "XML-based web-enabled software for managing corporate and personal data." In other words, it's a collaborative workgroup solution. Unity is a virtual distributed file system that lets users share information, no matter where it resides. In Unity, information is stored in an object that possesses context. Objects in turn are discovered, managed, and maintain currency and relevancy through their relationships with other objects. The content of an Engenia Unity object is its set of properties and methods that define its behavior, user interface, and interaction with other objects. Objects can communicate with each other without the need for a centralized administrator. As each new object enters the system, it can easily interact with existing ones. The company's management team consists of former IBM and Lotus executives. It was founded in 1998, and is currently in second round of financing.
