CHICAGO, Sept. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ARMA International Conference and Expo -- Autonomy, an HP Company, today announced the industry's first and only integrated solution for automatically applying policy, based on meaning, to both structured and unstructured data, regardless of format or location within an organization. The new, integrated releases of the HP TRIM records management and Autonomy ControlPoint policy application products enable organizations to understand the concepts and ideas contained within their data. This ability to understand the meaning of information is the foundation of HP's meaning-based information governance vision, and allows businesses to automate the application of a governance policy based on the meaning held within content. The new features of HP TRIM 7.3 and Autonomy ControlPoint 3.0 are built on Autonomy's Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL) platform, which allow organizations to identify the location and compliance status of their information assets, and then apply the correct organizational policy. The policy includes security, storage, and retention settings for each asset. This enables organizations to achieve a new level of governance by removing the significant burden of traditional manual approaches. "HP is delivering on its promise to demonstrate tangible synergies from its Autonomy acquisition," said Sue Clarke, analyst at Ovum, a leading industry analyst firm. " The meaning-based information governance platform underpinned by IDOL, is an example of how Autonomy is bringing together different products from both the Autonomy and HP's stables, integrating them, and creating solutions-based approaches to address real issues faced by organizations." The new integrated solution enables customers to leverage Autonomy ControlPoint's ability to automatically identify and classify business records using Autonomy IDOL's meaning-based analysis and, if appropriate, declare and manage these business records via the HP TRIM record repository. Autonomy ControlPoint can apply policy to content across multiple repositories, which eliminates the need to move content or duplicate data, enabling customers to reduce storage costs while mitigating risk.
