Autonomy's FRCP-Compliant Pan-Enterprise Search Selected "2008 Trendsetter" by Kmworld Magazine
(PresseBox) (Cambridge, UK and San Francisco, Calif., )Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a global leader in infrastructure software for the enterprise, today announced that its pan-enterprise search platform, Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL), has been selected by KMWorld magazine as a "2008 Trendsetter" for its ability to simultaneously meet an organization's litigation and knowledge management requirements. This has become a critical need as information officers, knowledge officers, and corporate librarians look for ways to manage their electronically stored information (ESI) in compliance with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP). Autonomy's technology makes this possible by automating the retrieval, processing, and management of all information throughout a global organization, including text, data, voice and video, to find relevant information for litigation with auditable and repeatable results.
Hugh McKellar, KMWorld's editor in chief, said, "This year's edition has been compiled through briefings with vendors themselves, along with conversations with analysts, users and system integrators. Our mission selecting this year's products has been deceptively simple: select those that deliver robust customer value. We are proud to acknowledge Autonomy for its industry-leading pan-enterprise search platform."
Autonomy's IDOL performs conceptual and contextual analysis and probability matching on information to find the meaning within and the inter-relationships between and among disparate pieces of content. This unique approach allows global organizations to find and access the most pertinent content for business value or risk management, irrespective of languages, operating systems, and file types. By supporting more than 1,000 different data formats, including structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data, located across 400 different content repositories, Autonomy can search all categories of information repositories in an organization, enabling companies to maintain compliance with FRCP. It is fault-tolerant using load balancing and mirroring, highly scalable, secure, and has sub-second performance on billions of files.
"We are honored to be recognized by KMWorld magazine," said Mike Lynch, CEO of Autonomy. "Autonomy's IDOL offers more than 500 advanced functionalities to process all forms of digital information based on a single platform. It is relied upon by thousands of public and private organizations across the globe to effectively manage and access their data."
