Autonomy software solutions solve business problems related to Information Management needs. Our solutions help organizations understand the meaning behind content within their organization, independent of the structure, language or format, whether it be structured, semi-structured or unstructured. Eighty five per cent of a company’s information is unstructured, human information (ie found in emails, voicemails and video) and only Autonomy is able to understand this. Autonomy customers leverage content and drive interactions from existing applications through information access technologies, pan-enterprise search, information governance, end-to-end eDiscovery and archiving, records management, business process management, web content management, back-up and recovery solutions as well as customer interaction solutions, and video and audio analysis.
