Autonomy Improves its eDiscovery Software

February 15, 2013

HP is on the move, leveraging their Autonomy investment with new features, we learn in the company’s announcement, “HP Autonomy Strengthens eDiscovery Solution with New Information Governance Capabilities.”

The crucial early case assessment (ECA) phase occurs at the onset of a legal procedure, when large volumes of data must be assessed quickly, thoroughly, and carefully. The press release informs us:

“Autonomy has extended its Meaning Based Coding (MBC) capability to its ECA module, further enhancing its in-depth eDiscovery analysis capabilities. Autonomy’s MBC capabilities enable organizations to automate analysis based on the Autonomy Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL), which quickly categorizes data by concepts, ideas and patterns in information. Unlike traditional predictive coding technologies, MBC classifications are carried through to the review and production phase without new processing or indexing. As a result, Autonomy ECA can perform an analysis of the data faster, more accurately and at a lower cost.”

Also new is the software’s integration with HP’s Application Information Optimizer, which automates data migration and retirement. Furthermore, Autonomy has added native discovery functionality to the on-premise version of their archiving solution, Autonomy Consolidated Archive. They say these improvements streamline the eDiscovery process, saving money, time, and frustration.

Autonomy, founded in 1996, offers solutions that use IDOL to tame mind-boggling amounts of unstructured data. The technology grew from research originally performed at Cambridge University, and now serves prominent public and private organizations around the world. HP acquired Autonomy in 2011.
