HP Brings Together Autonomy and HadoopTo Help Customers Find Information They Need

by HSG on Jun 13, 2012 in News

Last year, Hewlett-Packard purchased Autonomy for $10 billion, enduring a number of arrows from its competitor Oracle. What a difference a year is!

 

Since the purchase HP saw the leaving of Autonomy CEO Mike Lynch, which was not on friendly terms. It also saw the departure of the whole original management team and 20 percent of the staff. Now, the question is whether or not HP will see its move compensate or become another WebOS-style fiasco, marking the company needs to stay with hardware.

 

HP’s Autonomy wing recently released a series of cloud-based products, centered on the Autonomy Intelligent Data Operating Layer 10 (IDOL10). The goal is to bring new order and anaylsis to Hadoop, which is what the company’s Converged Cloud is based upon, as well as to Web clickstream information. These advances are supposed to produce deeper perceptibility into reams of both structured and unstructured information.

 

IDOL along with Vertica (data warehouse software that HP acquired) can be entrenched in Hadoop nodes. From here, users are able to use IDOL’s more than 500 functions – clustering, categorization and hyperlinking – to find all kinds of sources for both structured and unstructured information to find deeper trends and meanings.

 

Sources are also in charge of the gamut from instructed audio files and Twitter streams to structured information like services issues, inventory records and purchase history. IDOL has 400 connectors, which allows business to use and obtain external information.

 

Autonomy Vice President Matt Malden said the benefits to this approach is IDOL can carry out in-place analysis of information on the Hadoop data storage instead of needing to copy information from one place to another place to have it examined.

 

Autonomy also recently released an extension for the digital market platform known as Autonomy Optimost Clickstream Analytics, which is created to give marketers the following things:

 

- Conversions

- Customer engagement

- Single view visits

 

The platform allows marketers to attain access to granular clickstream data, which they can look at themselves. Users can blend the data received with the unstructured statistics and third party material for deeper discernments into customer buying patterns and interests.

 

Malden said the idea for Optimost Analytics is to give average users the tools necessary to cut up information to find the useful bits of information. While the system has a UI of its own, it can use the third-party visualization technology like Tableau and QlikView.

MOntitor each students progress and offer feedback, perspective and alternatives when needed.

Establish an Action plan to yield a set of deliverables in order to guarantee productive learning.

Establish an Commit to a deliverable time line.

Hold each student accountable to a standard that is comparable to that of an engineer/project manager with at least one year's experience in the field.

These coaching cycles typically last 2-4 weeks in duration.

Provide Expertise
Services for your business growth.
With the introduction of smart devices, e-marketplaces, electronic forms, SEO practices, big data, virtual office environments, media streaming and so much more, there is hardly a business whose livelihood is not, in some way, dependent upon the inclusion of such software functionality into its online presence, work environment and product offerings. Such inclusion often presents a complex array of challenges that are far beyond the expertise of the business as it demands an understanding of technological options, modular decomposition, backend systems integration and web services. Most importantly, the business requires IT talent and expertise; this is where the Hartmann Software Group shines. To that end, here is an overview of some of the services that we offer:
