HP pairs Autonomy Idol with Trim records management

HP consolidates its enterprise software offerings

As part of a strategy to integrate its enterprise software products, Hewlett-Packard has updated its Trim records management software so that it works with Autonomy IDOL search and classification software for unstructured data.

HP estimates that less than 10 percent of an organization's information is retained as official records and is instead stored in a records management system such as HP Trim. Due to ongoing concerns around security and government compliance, "organizations need to find a way to manage all their information, not just the 9 or 10 percent," said Dan Carmille, head of strategy and solutions for the enterprise content management group of HP's Autonomy. "That's the pressure we've been responding to."

HP acquired Autonomy last year and is in the process of moving the software and personnel into a unit of the HP Software division. "We're leveraging assets across HP software and Autonomy to create a single unified approach to information governance," Carmille said. "It's an example of the synergies of what HP is doing with Autonomy."

The new version of Trim, 7.3, has the ability to capture information on the Autonomy Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL) platform, so it can be stored as organizational records. The software makes use of version 3 of HP's Autonomy ControlPoint software, which was just released. Autonomy ControlPoint can identify material that should be categorized as business records and classify business records using the Autonomy IDOL's analysis techniques.

"You have the ability to apply policies to content. If one of your policies determines that [a piece of] content is a record, you have the ability to move that content directly into a records management system for proper management," Carmille said.

Trim 7.3 also allows its records to be searched through the IDOL search engine, expanding the range of organizational data that can be searched through IDOL.

HP also announced that the newly released version 7 of the HP Application Information Optimizer, which eliminates unnecessary legacy database records, will work with Trim.

The cost for running Trim starts at US$500 per seat, with per-seat discounting based on the number of registered users.
