HP finds a use for expensive buys

Autonomy and Vertica jammed together

Maker of expensive printer ink HP is slamming its newly bought Autonomy and Vertica software into a single software package, called the HP Next Generation Information Platform.

HP is under pressure to do something with the analysis software which cost it a bomb. The outfit probably does not need it now that it has fired Leo Apotheker and backtracked on his cunning plan to turn the outfit into SAP. The new software will be in the shops in January and it will enable punters to search and analyze both structured and unstructured data.

The Vertica Analytics Platform is a data warehouse software for storing and analyzing structured data, or data that has been stored in a relational database. Autonomy's IDOL (Intelligent Data Operating Layer) server can index unstructured data within an enterprise, providing users with a search-based interface. In other words it is software which is so esoteric no one really knows what it does. Just like SAP.

No word on costs, but if it is like SAP it will cost a bomb.
