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, California, 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 Consultingand 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."

Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things. And Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
