Autonomy Empowers U.S. Government Agencies to Meet President Obama's New Memorandum on Government Records04:00 EST Thursday, January 19, 2012Autonomy's Meaning-Based Information Governance Solutions Suite Automatically Governs All Information Across the OrganizationCAMBRIDGE, England and SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Autonomy, an HP Company, today announced that its comprehensive suite of meaning-based information governance solutions enables government agencies to effectively comply with President Obama's new Memorandum on the management of government records. In order to comply with the Memorandum, government agencies need to be able to apply consistent policy to all of their content and transition only the relevant records to the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). Built based on Autonomy IDOL's unique ability to understand, analyze and act on the meaning of information in any file format and language, Autonomy's information governance solutions uniquely enable government agencies to apply holistic governance to all forms of content, including physical records, video and audio files, social media and web sites.  According to a recent press release issued by the U.S. White House, "The Presidential Memorandum initiates a comprehensive assessment of agency systems for collecting, maintaining, and preserving the records that document the operation of the U.S. democracy.  Specifically, it calls for reports within the next 120 days, by each agency head, describing current plans for improving records management programs; outlining current obstacles to sound, cost-effective records management policies; and cataloguing potential reforms and improvements. The agency reports will inform, and be followed, by a Records Management Directive, to be issued by the Director of OMB and the National Archivist of the United States that will identify specific steps agencies must take to reform records management policies and practices." Autonomy delivers a comprehensive suite of information governance solutions that addresses the broad and varying needs of enterprises and government agencies. With support for over 150 languages and access to over 1,000 file types through 400 pre-built connectors to disparate content sources, repositories and legacy systems, the Autonomy solutions can apply policy consistently to every information source in the enterprise simultaneously, while managing content in place and reducing duplicates across all enterprise repositories.
