Information Governance: Reflections on HP Autonomy’s Information Governance Forum

Today was an important milestone for HP Autonomy.  We have long had many of the components of an Information Governance portfolio, but these pieces were not yet perfectly aligned and brought to market with unified outreach plan.  That all changed today. 

 

The first-annual HP Autonomy Information Governance Forum kicked off today in Melbourne Australia.  The event, which opened to a full house, was teeming with energy and optimism for the future of Information Governance.  Keynote presentations highlighted the importance of taking a holistic approach to governing data, in which multiple point solutions can work together to solve complex problems that no one technology – regardless of how advanced – can solve on its own.   

 

The event also served as a springboard from which we would launch HP Records Manager 8.0 (RM 8.0).  This new product, which is a key piece of HP Autonomy’s Information Governance portfolio of offerings, represents a significant step forward in records management.  This technology brings together the best of three previously distinct RM products and adds important new functionality for managing data in an increasingly mobile world.

 

The lynchpin of HP Autonomy’s Information Governance vision remains its core IDOL technology.  This software not only provides unparalleled access to a wide range of once-disparate data repositories, but it also delivers deep conceptual understanding of human-generated (unstructured) content – ultimately enabling uniform and automated policy application and enforcement across the enterprise.  Further, it is a unifying force that allows a number of point solutions to work together to deliver significantly more value than these products can deliver on their own. 

 

The “1+1=3” example most commonly cited today was the combination of ControlPoint technology with RM 8.0, which allows organizations to take back control of legacy data, defensibly dispose of a subset of that information that no longer is valuable, and then migrate the rest into the RM system for active management.  Current customers also talked throughout the day about other ways that they have effectively leveraged HP Autonomy software to increase enterprise productivity and lower risk and cost through the better governance of data. 

 

This week’s activities – the unveiling of a HP Autonomy-sponsored Information Governance event and the further investment in a key component of HP Autonomy’s InfoGov portfolio – are two early indicators that HP Autonomy is committed to delivering a market-leading Information Governance solution.  Be looking for additional product, delivery and marketing-related activities in the near future that will further separate us from our Information Governance competitors. 

 

I also love seeing all the buzz around the launch of HP Records Manager 8.0, and commentary live from the HP Information Governance Forum.
