HP today extended its Information Optimization portfolio with new solutions that help Instant-On Enterprises turn information, intuition and ideas into insights to drive better decision making.

An explosion of data is being driven by new sources that challenge traditional methods for storing and analyzing information. Today, only 15 percent of data is found in structured formats that computers understand. “Human Information,” data found in video, audio, email, texts, social media and more accounts for 85 percent of the world’s data and provides richer meaning by consisting of ideas and concepts. In addition, the growing amount of “extreme information,” generated from sensors and tags provide new opportunities for organizations to exploit. This full continuum of data presents real challenges to today’s enterprises.

New research conducted on behalf of HP reveals that one out of three executives in the Asia Pacific and Japan region indicated that more than half of the information within their organization remains unconnected, undiscovered and unusable.(1)

One out of two executives surveyed indicated that their organizations lack an effective information strategy that cuts across organizational silos, technologies and strategic functions. In addition, only 1 percent of surveyed executives said their organizations can deliver the right information at the right time to support the right business outcomes 100 percent of the time.

“Exploiting information across its many forms is the next big wave to drive competitive advantage,” said Cally Chan, managing director, HP Hong Kong. “Until now, enterprises were tied to only using 15 percent of the data available to them. With HP’s strong portfolio of Information Optimization solutions, enterprises can harness the power of 100 percent of their data to drive insight, foresight and action.”

HP’s Next Generation Information Platform

The HP Next Generation Information Platform – IDOL 10 enables organizations to automatically understand and act on a combination of human and extreme information by identifying ideas and patterns in place and in real time. The combination of an information processing layer from Autonomy, an HP Company, with a high-performance real-time analytics engine from Vertica, an HP Company, allows organizations to analyze 100 percent of unstructured, semistructured and structured information in a consistent, uniform way.

HP Autonomy Appliances for Archiving, eDiscovery, and Enterprise Search

The new HP Autonomy Appliances for archiving, eDiscovery and Enterprise search are designed to provide organizations with simplified, reliable and turn-key solutions for these specific applications. Powered by IDOL 10, the new Archiving Appliance allows organizations to quickly use and extract metadata from all data types and sources. The eDiscovery Appliance provides analysis of critical data points to case status, data volume and litigation trends. With the Enterprise Search Appliance, enterprises can categorize, tag, link, retrieve, and profile of all forms of data to deliver large volumes of pertinent information.

HP Social Intelligence Solution and Advanced Information Services for Vertica

The HP Social Intelligence Solution helps organizations harness unstructured data generated in social media channels to optimize the customer experience, manage brand reputation, empower resources, as well as drive product innovation.

In addition, HP Advanced Information Services for Vertica accelerate the implementation of the Vertica Analytics Platform, which analyzes structured, semistructured, and unstructured data on a massive scale to quickly gain critical business insight. These services assist clients in defining their specific data analysis requirements and determining the best options for integrating the Vertica Analytics Platform into their existing infrastructure.

HP Converged Storage Solutions

For customers with big data requirements, the new HP B6200 StoreOnce Backup System represents the industry’s fastest large scale deduplication appliance at 28TB per hour(2) and is the only solution in its class to provide fully automated high availability.(3)

New HP Data Protector software integrates the HP Labs StoreOnce deduplication engine to deliver high-performance and resource-efficient data backup for smaller IT environments.

For midsize clients, a new high-density Converged Storage appliance, the HP X5000 G2 Network Storage System designed by HP and Microsoft, offers simplicity and efficiency to manage rapidly growing Human Information content. Capable of supporting over 10,000 users on a single system, it is easily expandable to over 100TB of capacity.(4)

It delivers a comprehensive view across all IT assets, automates IT management and adjusts IT performance to meet specific business goals. The new HP IT Performance Suite solutions include HP Business Service Management (BSM) 9.1 and HP Application Lifecycle Intelligence (ALI) 2.0.

The new HP BSM 9.1 software helps anticipate IT incidents before they happen, enabling IT management to be proactive by analyzing and remediating potential issues before they impact the business. HP ALI 2.0, a key component of the HP Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) software, delivers end-to-end visibility to optimize application development.
