Autonomy (News - Alert), an HP Company, has unveiled the HP Application Information Optimizer 7.0. An enterprise solution, it is expected to enhance application performance and helps meet critical compliance obligations, while bringing down data storage significantly.
Specializing in software that processes human information, or unstructured data, including social media, e-mail, video, audio, text and Web pages, Autonomy offers powerful management and analytic tools for structured information. It helps extract meaning in real time from all forms of information, regardless of format, aiding in search analytics, business process management and OEM operations.
Officials explained that since organizations were burdened with several application databases that possessed inactive structured data collected over time, this data is never moved or deleted and could be accessed via the application that created it, or so it was thought.
The result of such bloated databases was poor applications performance, more storage costs and labor costs for keeping obsolete applications running. Also, bloated data does not come under any clear disposal policies, causing problems for organizations in the future.
To override such inefficiencies, HP Application Information Optimizer was released, sorting the systemic bloated data problem by safely removing and preserving inactive structured data, and at the same time preserving data integrity and access.
It also allows data to be stored in on-premises or cloud-storage environments, such as HP Cloud Services.
The prebuilt archiving modules included in the optimizer solution supports enterprise applications like Oracle (News - Alert) E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft and Siebel. HP Application Information Optimizer’s integrated data extraction wizard enables safe extraction of data from any industry-standard relational database enabling data archiving, said officials.
“Enterprise data is growing at an exponential rate, leading to unsustainable costs for organizations, a drastic decrease in productivity related to finding and leveraging information, and unacceptable risk around compliance and eDiscovery,” said Mike Sullivan, general manager, Protect Enterprise, Autonomy, an HP Company.
“HP Application Information Optimizer and its seamless integration to solutions within our meaning-based information governance portfolio help businesses take on these challenges with confidence, while at the same time providing an unprecedented opportunity for companies to get more value out of their business information,” Sullivan added.
Autonomy also announced that it will merge its ControlPoint product with HP TRIM records management to offer a combined solution for automatically applying policy based on meaning.
