Information optimisation: New announcements help you manage, understand, and act on big data

Continuing the theme of big data and analytics, as introduced by yesterday’s storage announcements, which economise and automate data storage, as well as bring analytics down to the storage level, today’s announcements include a bundle of solutions designed to enhance information optimisation capabilities.


Details on all of the below announcements will be available soon on HP Information Optimisation Solutions page.


The key message of today’s announcements is that these are not just software updates. They integrate hardware and service enhancements that allow a more comprehensive handling of data and analytics, including the ability to:


  • Manage
  • Understand
  • Act


This means integrating robust data storage and analytics into enterprise IT, as well as truly extracting value from it for a measurable ROI, which for many organisations today means return on information.


In the Manage category, HP announced the following enhanced solutions:


  • HP Autonomy Legal Performance Suite—a cloud-based platform that helps to streamline information governance. It automatically indexes all incoming data, allowing for more efficient archiving, eDiscovery, and management of enterprise content, documents, and records.
  • HP AppSystem for:
    • Hadoop—a pre-assembled appliance featuring best-in-class HP and partner software on HP Converged Infrastructure. The key feature, aside from performance and accelerated deployments, is the ability to manage multiple, large Hadoop clusters from a single management platform.
    • Vertica—Features Vertica 6.1 Analytics Platform based on the ProLiant Gen8 servers and HP Storage. Enhanced capabilities include real-time big data analytics, faster data monetisation, and the ability to deploy Vertica on industry-standard hardware, virtual machines, or in the cloud.
    • HP Autonomy eDiscovery Appliance—Originally announced in November 2011, this new appliance moves the platform to Gen8. Provides end-to-end eDiscovery capabilities, including identification, preservation, collection, processing, analysis, review, and production.

To complement these information management enhancements, HP has also announced a brand new service:


  • HP Proactive Care for SAP—Provides needed expertise to help ensure a functioning SAP environment. Proactive care helps avoid unplanned downtime, increases overall performance, and provides the support needed to meet service level agreements.

Provides a special emphasis on building your capabilities to scale for information growth and build a strategic information management roadmap.
  • HP Vertica Analytics Platform 6.1—Purpose-built for organisations of all sizes to monetise big data faster and at massive scale. This new kind of database is designed to drive down the cost of capturing, storing and analysing data.


To address the unique, industry-specific challenges of understanding information, HP announced this new group of solutions:


  • HP Telco Big Data and Analytics—Designed specifically for communications service providers interested in using big data to differentiate themselves, improve understanding of their customer base to provide better services, and improve the bottom line.


To help organizations Act on all of the date they’re collecting, storing, and analyzing, HP announced the following enhancement:
