Autonomy Corp. plc Launches Legacy Data Cleanup Solution for Information Governance
Jun 11 13
Autonomy Corp. plc announced a new solution designed to address the cost, compliance and control challenges confronted by organizations struggling to manage increasing volumes of legacy information. Autonomy Legacy Data Cleanup, powered by Autonomy ControlPoint 4.0, helps organizations gain access to, understand, classify and defensibly dispose of outdated and unnecessary legacy information. Many organizations are dealing with information sprawl from multiple legacy systems, as well as information acquired as part of corporate mergers and acquisition activity. Legacy data in old SharePoint sites, email file stores and other repositories can quickly become hidden from the organization at large. This "dark data" eats up storage budgets and inhibits efforts to modernize infrastructure and migrate information to the cloud. Dark data also contains unknown business value and risk to an organization. The Autonomy Legacy Data Cleanup solution addresses these issues by allowing organizations to: Explore and analyze content from multiple data sources, such as email repositories, file shares and SharePoint sites, to identify, filter, classify and separate valuable from outdated information. Dispose of data that has "aged out" of organizations' retention policies-and establish an audit trail. Apply policy and take action on identified content by moving the data to an information archiving or records management system, for more efficient legal holds and improved access to information. Together, these capabilities solve an important big data challenge for organizations of all sizes, resulting in reduced data storage costs, lower risks to the business, and greater control and leveragability of an organization's distributed data assets. The HP Autonomy Legacy Data Cleanup solution can be deployed in a standalone, modular fashion, or leveraged as part of HP Autonomy's comprehensive portfolio for information governance, which consists of solutions for archiving, eDiscovery, enterprise content management, data protection, legal hold and records management. The solution can serve the needs of organizations at different stages of information governance adoption. This ranges from organizations that simply seek a snapshot of their legacy data, to organizations that desire to leverage the offering as part of a larger information governance program that applies the same policy and rigor to "live" active data as well as legacy dark data. The Autonomy Legacy Data Cleanup solution and ControlPoint 4.0 are available in all regions now.
