HP Autonomy new hybrid cloud solution
Aug 23, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
HP Autonomy has announced Autonomy LinkSite, a hybrid cloud solution that integrates HP Autonomy WorkSite, an on-premises document and email management system with HP Flow CM, HP's public cloud file sharing and collaboration service.
This solution enables organizations to securely share and collaborate on files in the cloud with colleagues, customers and business partners while maintaining visibility to, and governance of, content from within Autonomy WorkSite.
Autonomy LinkSite combines an enterprise-grade document and email management system with the ease of use and simplicity of a consumer solution. It provides the enterprise with a single, integrated, user-friendly tool for external file sharing and collaboration. Autonomy LinkSite enables a single file or an entire project folder to be shared in the cloud with internal and external collaborators, directly from the Autonomy WorkSite application, the company said.
According to the company, Autonomy LinkSite benefits include: team collaboration beyond the firewall; single point of access; full device synchronization; seamless extension of enterprise security, authorization and audit to the cloud; and better than consumer-grade ease of use.
Autonomy LinkSite extends the traditional workspace context from Autonomy WorkSite into the cloud. Autonomy WorkSite users have access to all their files, whether stored within the enterprise content management system or shared externally, through a single interface. This allows them to view, edit, share and search both cloud-based and on-premises content from one place, helping them save time and improve productivity, the company added.
Files shared via Autonomy LinkSite are synchronized across all employee devices, and can be accessed through any web browser, letting users work how and when they need to. Content uploaded to the cloud with Autonomy LinkSite inherits all security properties set in Autonomy WorkSite, and all actions taken on content in the cloud are reported via the Autonomy Worksite audit trail, providing a seamless extension of enterprise security and governance to the cloud.
Autonomy LinkSite can automatically suggest collaboration partners for any project, based on analysis of email communications, saving users time and hassle. Unified search across both cloud and on-premises repositories, combined with the ability to view cloud-based file shares from inside the native Autonomy WorkSite application, provides ease of use and efficiency not possible with current, disconnected file sharing systems, the company reported.
"For the first time, organizations no longer have to turn a blind eye to continued use of undocumented consumer file sharing services," said Neil Araujo, general manager, enterprise content management, HP Autonomy. "Businesses now have a very attractive alternative that satisfies the needs of the users as well as the IT and compliance teams."
