Autonomy to acquire CA's governance unit
In a move designed to enhance its Meaning Based Governance, Autonomy has announced its intention to acquire CA Technologies' Information Governance business.
The asset acquisition includes CA Records Manager and CA Message Manager, a solution for capturing and managing all messages according to corporate and regulatory requirements. CA Technologies Information Governance employees will join Autonomy to continue to provide sales, support and products to existing and new customers.
Autonomy says CA Technologies Information Governance customers will benefit from its single platform for end-to-end e-discovery, archiving, supervision and records management with scalability and advanced multilingual capabilities. Autonomy further states CA Records Manager and CA Message Manager powered by IDOL information processing platform will bring advanced automation to information governance tasks based on IDOL's ability to understand the meaning of information. This will significantly reduce the levels of manual effort from that previously required.
In addition to existing environments supported, Autonomy will extend connectivity for life cycle management across more than 400 content sources and 1,000 file types. Customers will also have the option to leverage both offerings hosted in Autonomy's secure private cloud, which currently hosts over 14 petabytes of data. Autonomy is continuing the support and enhancement of both CA Records Manager and CA Message Manager.
