HP Combines Autonomy, Vertica Software Tech for New Information Platform

Hewlett Packard has announced a new product offering, which combines the technologies it had procured with the acquisition of Autonomy and Vertica Software.

HP Next Generation Information Platform, which will be launched by the end of January, has been designed to allow enterprises manage and analyse structured and unstructured data, the company said.

The software package is a combination of Vertica Analytics Platform, which enables the analysis of data stored in rational databases or structured data while Autonomy's IDOL (Intelligent Data Operating Layer) is capable of analysing unstructured data, offering a search based user interface, PC World reports.

"Exploiting information across its many forms is the next big wave to drive competitive advantage," said Jan Zadak, executive vice president, Global Sales, HP.

"With HP's strong portfolio of Information Optimization solutions, enterprises can harness the power of 100 per cent of their data to drive insight, foresight and action." he added.

The company claims that only 15 per cent of data with organisations is structured and more than 50 per cent of data with an organisation remains unused, therefore, the new offering will be valuable in dealing with both structured and unstructured types of data.
