Autonomy Unveils Meaning-Based Policy Control Solution for Governance and Compliance
Autonomy Policy Authority Represents the Industry's First Solution to Centralize the Management of Compliance Policy Across the Enterprise
NATIONAL HARBOR, Md., -- ARMA International Conference and Expo - Autonomy Corporation, an HP Company, today announced the availability of Autonomy Policy Authority, the industry's first meaning-based policy control solution that enables global organizations to centralize the management of governance and compliance policy across the enterprise. Built based on Autonomy IDOL's unique ability to understand, analyze and act on the meaning of information in any file format and language, Policy Authority is the only solution that automatically applies consistent policy for all applications, such as records management and legal hold, as well as content repositories for both structured and unstructured data.
Traditional approaches to policy management rely on multiple individual applications, and coordinating these to create one consistent, corporate-wide policy requires a manual, time-consuming process. Additionally, organizations are struggling to manage an ever- increasing volume of data consisting of a wide range of structured and unstructured data.
In order to create a unified standard for applying policy to all forms of information, organizations require technology that automatically recognizes context and concepts in data, including social media, web pages, video, and audio recordings. Autonomy Policy Authority is the industry's only solution that understands the meaning within this wide array of human information, transforming information governance from an inefficient and error-prone process to an automated and defensible operation. Policy Authority includes a central meaning-based policy engine to provide a consistent set of rules to subscribing applications, thus automating all the steps in the policy control procedure, and elevating the corporate-wide policy above any one application.
"Businesses need a comprehensive tool to automatically and consistently administer policies and determine risk," said Randolph Kahn, founder of Kahn Consulting and author of "Information Nation". "Autonomy is taking a unique approach to implementing and managing policies to govern the lifecycle of information."
"Organizations today struggle with complexity and scale - they must manage multiple, disparate systems, and deal with an ever-growing volume of unstructured and structured data," said Dr. Galina Datskovsky, CRM, senior vice president of Information Governance at Autonomy, an HP company and president of ARMA International. "The only way to effectively apply a consistent, corporate-wide policy in these environments is through technology that automatically understands concepts in all form of information. Policy Authority is built for the next-generation enterprise - by quickly and accurately applying policy across subscribing applications and content repositories, organizations will significantly improve their compliance and information governance initiatives."
