HP Harnesses the Power of Big Data


HP Harnesses the Power of Big Data with New Information Optimisation Solutions

New offerings help enterprises drive “Return on Information”


NEW ZEALAND, Dec. 5, 2012 — HP today announced new and enhanced Information Optimisation Solutions that help enterprises manage, understand and act upon the variety, velocity and volume of organisational data to drive maximum “Return on Information.”

Return on Information is the value that organisations generate from their investments in information solutions, services and resources by gaining insight from their data to make better and quicker decisions.

Big data is comprised of structured data, from traditional databases; unstructured data consisting of images, videos, emails, texts and more; and semi structured data collected from sensors and machines and are all factors in the challenge that organisations are facing today.

The volume of the world’s “digital universe” is expected to reach 8 zettabytes by 2015,(1) making storage and management of data a massive challenge. And according to new research conducted on behalf of HP, 53 percent of business executives report that their organisations are not equipped with the right solutions to gain insight from Big Data, and only 15 percent of executives said their organisations currently incorporate unstructured data into their enterprise insights, processes and strategy.(2)

With new solutions from Autonomy and HP Vertica—both HP companies—coupled with new HP Converged Infrastructure solutions and deep services expertise, HP enables businesses and governments to extract value from 100 percent of their structured, semi structured and unstructured information.

“Over the next several years, Return on Information will become the single most important measure of success for organisations,” said Richard Outten, general manager, Software, HP South Pacific. “HP will continue to invest in and develop solutions and services that harness the volume, diversity and unpredictability of information to deliver real value to our clients.”

HP helps clients manage information with an intelligent ecosystem
To address the need for configuring and deploying Big Data systems, HP today expanded its HP AppSystems portfolio to offer improved customer choice and expanded capabilities of HP Converged Infrastructure with Apache™ Hadoop™, HP Vertica Analytics Platform and Autonomy eDiscovery environments.

The Autonomy Legal Performance Suite delivers a comprehensive, cloud-based platform designed to help organisations streamline the governance of all forms of information. Powered by the Autonomy Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL), this platform automatically indexes all enterprise data, which forms the foundation for an integrated, highly effective information governance strategy, including archiving, eDiscovery, and enterprise content, document and records management.

HP Proactive Care for SAP optimises an infrastructure running SAP solutions, enabling faster analysis of large amounts of data, including application trend analysis, capacity planning and measurement of system resource utilisation.

The newly enhanced HP Converged Storage portfolio eliminates administrative complexity, reduces costs and accelerates information insight in virtualised, cloud and Big Data environments.

HP helps clients to intelligently understand their data
The HP Vertica Analytics Platform 6.1 is a next-generation analytics platform, purpose built to optimise Big Data. It enables enterprises to optimise and monetise Big Data with analytics packs, performance enhancements, enhanced integration with Hadoop and simplified Amazon EC2 cloud deployments—all at hyperspeed and massive scale.

The new HP Telco Big Data and Analytics solutions enable communication service providers (CSPs) to transform data from a variety of sources, including subscribers’ experience and preferences, into actionable intelligence. Leveraging HP’s Big Data analytics software, as well as HP’s consulting, research, information management and business intelligence experience, HP Telco Big Data and Analytics enable CSPs to manage, analyse and use business-relevant structured and unstructured data.

The HP Big Data Strategy Workshop provides clients with solutions to address some of their biggest information challenges, so they can leverage their data to accelerate informed decisions. The workshop educates clients on aligning IT and organisational goals, and on identifying critical success factors for Big Data architecture and system infrastructure strategy. It also helps to enable protection and compliance. As a result, clients can implement the right solutions to handle the growing volume, velocity and variety of their organisational information.

HP helps clients act on data to make intelligent, critical decisions - faster
The Autonomy Marketing Performance Suite provides a comprehensive, cloud-based platform designed to help organisations dramatically increase market share, optimise marketing spend and increase revenue across all channels. The platform consists of a comprehensive set of solutions, including pay-per-click optimisation, web content management, rich media management, and call centre, social media and sentiment analytics.

The Auckland-based company has increased its estimate to build the centre to between $470 million and $530 million as the construction boom across the country drives up building costs and design changes add to the bill.
