State of Oregon Embraces HP TRIM for Statewide Cloud-based Records Management Program

Technology from Autonomy, an HP Company, enables transparent, efficient records management with lowered risk and costs

PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Autonomy, an HP company, today announced that the State of Oregon has selected HP TRIM as the cornerstone of a cloud-based records management system that will allow state, city and county agencies to manage, secure and provide access to digital and physical documents.

Called Oregon Records Management Solution (ORMS), the cloud-based system is the result of a unique public-private collaboration between Autonomy, Chaves Consulting and Arikkan, utilizing HP TRIM to implement the first statewide electronic records management solution of its kind in the country. ORMS implements HP TRIM in the cloud as part of a Software-as-a-Service solution to make access to government records easier, more transparent, and affordable.

Currently a pilot program, ORMS will provide agencies with the ability to manage records in an efficient, uniform manner and save money on storage, risk and litigation costs. ORMS will allow agencies to comply with Oregon public records law for scheduled notification of automated retention and destruction of records. In addition, ORMS will support eDiscovery projects when legal teams must produce and review large volumes of information. Currently, over 700 employees across 11 city, county and state agencies have used ORMS with HP TRIM to manage more than 1 million documents during the pilot program.

The pilot program originated in the office of the Oregon Secretary of State, which used HP TRIM to manage its digital and physical records. Before using HP TRIM, employees had to go through back-up tapes, emails and file servers to satisfy public records requests. With HP TRIM, requests are processed exponentially faster. For example, a request for the 80,000 emails generated by the Secretary of State since taking office took 90 seconds to fulfill, instead of days. ORMS pilot agencies are experiencing similar benefits, for example requests for public documents that used to take a week to process now take 30 seconds.

"We realized that the benefits we experienced at the Secretary of State's office could be broadened to encompass every city, county and state agency in Oregon," said Oregon Secretary of State Kate Brown. "And since agencies access ORMS on a per-user basis, the smallest agencies can have the same transformative public records management as organizations with thousands of employees and larger budgets. ORMS with HP TRIM truly levels the playing field when it comes to managing public records."

"Most state archivists don't manage information until after documents have been created and used, but that process is cumbersome and does not work very well," said Mary Beth Herkert, archivist, State of Oregon. "HP TRIM lets us pivot to a front-end management solution where the records are managed as they are created."

In addition to the Secretary of State's Office, pilot agencies include: Oregon Department of Energy; Oregon Department of Human Services; Public Utility Commission; Tualatin Hills Parks and Recreation District; and the cities of Beaverton, Dundee, Hillsboro, Milwaukie and West Linn. In addition, the cities of St. Helens and Lebanon, as well as Tillamook County, have come on board as early adopters.

The Secretary of State's office anticipates more agencies coming on board once the pilot program is over. There is also a federal grant in play for bringing all of the current Oregon governor's records online as well as sharing technologies with the State of Washington.

Because ORMS is cloud-based, there are no up-front infrastructure costs. It also offers a smaller IT footprint and reduced equipment, power and facilities expenses. ORMS fulfills agencies' needs for records management hardware, software, training and support without the requirement of an up-front investment.

"Government agencies are under a lot of pressure, as the public expects their agencies to be working efficiently and cost effectively, while agencies are constantly having their resources cut and are now expected to do more with less," said Neil Araujo, general manager, Enterprise Content Management, Autonomy, an HP Company. "Implementing a records management solution like HP TRIM that is purpose-built to do the heavy lifting is an ideal way for government agencies to ratchet up efficiencies while still complying with state law."

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
There are many considerations when moving applications from on-premise to cloud. It is critical to understand the benefits and also challenges of this migration. A successful migration will result in lower Total Cost of Ownership, yet offer the same or higher level of robustness. Migration to cloud shifts computing resources from your data center, which can yield significant advantages provided that the cloud vendor an offer enterprise-grade quality for your application.
The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud wit...
