Autonomy, an HP Company, today announced the availability of the Autonomy Legal & Compliance Performance Suite, a comprehensive offering designed to help chief compliance officers, chief legal officers and general counsel overcome the challenges associated with explosive information growth, new forms of data and devices, and an increasingly complex regulatory environment.

We have an exclusive interview with Neil Araujo, the general manager of the Autonomy iManage division (and one of the original developers of the iManage DMS) in next week’s Insider newsletter in which he talks about the current DMS market and why this announcement is very good news for iManage users.

As part of today’s announcement, Autonomy is unveiling several new innovations in the Autonomy Legal & Compliance Performance Suite, including the following:

• Executive Scorecards—Chief compliance officers, chief legal officers, and general counsel can now benefit from HP Software’s innovative Executive Scorecards. HP Software Professional Services or an HP Software Services partner can leverage this technology service to deliver scorecards that meet the unique needs of an organization’s legal leadership. This dashboard could track multiple key performance indicators critical to executives, including legal fees tracker, compliance status, data volume on legal hold and data volume eligible for deletion. HP Software and Autonomy offer this as a consulting service that leverages best practices, methodology, and software to give business leaders one console from which to manage their legal, regulatory reporting and data governance initiatives.

• Mobile Content ManagementAutonomy WorkSite Mobility 2.5, has been significantly enhanced to enable law firms, legal departments and corporate executives to securely edit and collaborate on documents from mobile devices.  New mobile capture technology developed by HP enables full page documents to be captured and added to document management files, further enhancing productivity of mobile workers.

• New eDiscovery Module for Autonomy Consolidated Archive (ACA)—Autonomy has merged its legal hold, eDiscovery and archiving capabilities into a single platform. This enables organizations to act much more quickly and cost-effectively when an urgent legal matter takes place.

• Autonomy Connected Backup and Autonomy Legal Hold solution—Businesses that have protected mobile data with Autonomy Connected Backup can now automate the transfer of relevant end user custodial data into Autonomy Legal Hold when a company initiates a legal action. This allows businesses and governments to preserve and collect data for legal matters.
