Autonomy Corporation, an HP company, announced a new release of the company's eDiscovery solution.

eDiscovery brings together the capabilities of Autonomy Stratify for review, Autonomy Introspect for production, and Autonomy Investigator & ECA for identification and culling.

Powered by Autonomy IDOL 10, this solution automatically recognizes concepts and ideas in 100% of an organization's data, from unstructured human information, to structured data. Corporations and law firms can leverage Autonomy's advanced technology and eDiscovery expertise in the cloud, on premise, and with purpose-built HP appliances.

One Application for Simplified and Unified eDiscovery

Corporate legal departments and law firms must simultaneously manage hundreds of cases, which involves moving data at each step in the eDiscovery process. This approach introduces risk with each insecure handoff of data between systems. Autonomy eDiscovery alters this paradigm by providing a single solution for managing the end-to-end eDiscovery process.

It brings together the following solutions:

  • Autonomy Investigator & ECA - the market's solution for rapid early case assessment, and analysis of data in place.
  • Autonomy Stratify - the solution by lawyers, for its interface and workflow.
  • Autonomy Introspect - the solution for processing, review, and production that delivers capabilities for managing complex, multi-party litigation.

Further unifying the eDiscovery process, Autonomy's secure, private cloud simplifies matters by providing in-house and outside counsel with shared access to current litigation activity, to eliminate the need for risky imports, exports, and data transfers between parties.

Autonomy also now offers an eDiscovery Appliance, which combines Autonomy eDiscovery software with HP hardware, including HP ProLiant servers and HP storage. The turn-key and purpose-built Appliance is for rapid deployment within the enterprise, in a law firm, or by services partners. Within a matter of hours, an organization can set up the appliance and automatically upload data to Autonomy's secure private cloud or a server for review and production.

Meaning Based Coding for Dynamic,
Real-Time eDiscovery

The ability to recognize concepts and patterns in data is critical to eDiscovery. For instance, white collar criminals committing corporate fraud do not use the term fraud in their emails or voice mails; they use code words and veiled references that simple keyword technologies would fail to detect.

Autonomy eDiscovery overcomes this challenge with Meaning Based Coding, a groundbreaking technology that leverages IDOL's ability to conceptually understand the meaning of information to provide coding recommendations regarding relevance to one or more issues in a matter. As a result, Autonomy's eDiscovery solution provides legal teams with a an advantage over predictive coding methods, by enabling real-time behavioral categorization.

These capabilities enable organizations to:

  • Understand the team's coding decisions in relation to the meaning of documents under review.
  • At ingestion, automatically code documents based on exemplars, or based on automatically clustered content, to directly drive workflows that increase the efficiency of identifying potentially relevant documents while accelerating document review workflow.
  • Dynamically recommend document coding in real-time, reflecting the solution's up-to-the-second understanding of review team coding behavior to drive more accurate and consistent coding.
  • Automatically update the system's conceptual understanding of a particular matter as new documents are added and/or attorneys review and code additional documents.

eDiscovery for 100% of an Organization's Information
Mobile, Social, Audio, Video, and Structured Data

Autonomy eDiscovery is a solution built for enterprises, in which mobile devices are ubiquitous and social media is a component of the company's operations.

The ability to handle both unstructured and structured data is a differentiator as more organizations seek to process all data types for eDiscovery, including information from structured data sources, such as human resource databases, transactional systems, and call center call log data. The ability to handle all forms of data is critical to meeting the eDiscovery demands imposed by regulatory agencies, the courts and opposing parties for greater and more diverse sets of information.

Autonomy's eDiscovery solution enables comprehensive eDiscovery, all tied to an organization's broader information governance initiative, and includes these capabilities:

  • Understands and processes all forms of data including unstructured, human information such as email, mobile data, audio, video, and social media, as well as structured data.
  • Powered by Autonomy IDOL 10, the new Autonomy eDiscovery solution leverages integration with HP's Database Archiving (DBA), a technology that automatically collects structured data from applications and databases.

Connect eDiscovery and Information Governance
with a Comprehensive Strategy

As organizations grapple with the new challenges of the human information age, one of the priorities is to develop a strategy that connects eDiscovery and Information Governance. Autonomy's Information Governance solution enables an organization to form a contextual understanding of its entire set of information assets, and manage the data in place. As a result, when confronted with an investigation or litigation, organizations can use Autonomy eDiscovery to act fast and effectively.

Autonomy provides an information governance solution,
including the following products:

  • Autonomy Connected Backup - automatically backups data in the background and ensures data protection without interrupting users.
  • Autonomy Consolidated Archive - archives data on premise, in the cloud, and via appliances, and provides an intelligent governance layer from which businesses can drive their compliance, eDiscovery, and records management initiatives directly from archived data.
  • Autonomy HP Data Protector - reduces backup and recovery complexity and cost by protecting virtual and physical applications - whether you have one server or thousands.
  • Autonomy HP DBA - a technology that automatically collects structured data from applications and databases.
  • Autonomy Legal Hold - automates the legal hold process, data and custodian identification, notification management, and preservation and collection
  • Autonomy Policy Authority - delivers a centralized policy authority for enforcing information governance policies across distributed content, including both structured and unstructured information.
  • Autonomy Records Manager - manages all forms of records: physical and electronic, including email, from a single policy management and administration dashboard.
  • Autonomy Social Media Governance - extends Autonomy's supervision, policy, and compliance solutions to monitor, govern, and protect organizations across social media channels.
  • Autonomy Supervisor - provides automated monitoring and surveillance of all electronic communications of an organization.
  • Autonomy HP TRIM - designed to meet the increasingly complex demands of corporations and the public sector, while automating and simplifying information governance.

"Autonomy pioneered the modern day eDiscovery market, and has a proven track record in helping organizations successfully manage some of the world's most complex and high-profile litigation over the past few years," said Mike Sullivan, CEO of Autonomy Protect, Enterprise Markets. "Our new eDiscovery release further strengthens this solution by bringing together the trusted technologies from Stratify, Introspect, and Investigator & ECA into one application, and for the first time, enabling businesses to bring 100% of their data into the eDiscovery process. Customers can take advantage of this solution through a variety of deployment models, and ensure that their eDiscovery processes are a key component of a holistic Information Governance strategy."
