Recently-Launched, Cloud-Based Review and Analysis Platform Helps Celerity Clients Focus on eDiscovery, and Not Technology

PALO ALTO, Calif. and SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., August 25, 2014 — / — HP Autonomy, today announced that Celerity Consulting Group, an information governance firm, has added HP eDiscovery OnDemand, a cloud-based review and analysis platform, to its eDiscovery line-up of services and technology.

This allows Celerity to provide its clients with direct access to HP Autonomy’s powerful, secure and cloud-based eDiscovery solution – without a significant investment in multiple tools and IT infrastructure.

“HP eDiscovery OnDemand allows us to present those clients who want to run their own technology, with a “plug-and-play” offering that meets our own high standards of security and performance,”  said Dr. Bruce Hartley, Vice-President of Technical Services at Celerity Consulting Group. “It’s especially compelling because it provides all the eDiscovery tools a litigation team might need, within one interface, at one per-monthly, per-gigabyte cost. Clients just choose which features they need for a particular matter and avoid wasting time on transferring data as it progresses through the workflow. And because it’s in the cloud, clients don’t have to invest in technology infrastructure.”

Recently-launched HP eDiscovery OnDemand provides organizations with a fast, easy, and cost-effective path to leverage HP Autonomy’s market-leading eDiscovery technology. It delivers the entire HP Autonomy eDiscovery platform—including processing, early case assessment, review and production—as a secure cloud offering. Legal teams can quickly and easily upload case files and manage the complete eDiscovery process, for an optimal mix of control, speed, simplicity and cost savings.

Enabling Clients to Focus on Results vs. Technology
Celerity selected HP eDiscovery OnDemand based on Celerity’s experience helping Fortune 500 companies integrate HP Autonomy enterprise content and legal content management solutions. The firm was looking for a cloud-based solution for clients’ who typically have small- and mid-sized matters (less than 50GB) yet want to run the process and technology themselves. HP eDiscovery OnDemand offers the required security and performance, but can be set up in a fraction of the time and accessed on an as-needed basis. Ultimately, it provides law firm and corporate counsel with cost savings comparable to in-house alternatives. Early projects are already delivering solid results.

Another Tangible Example of HP Innovation
HP eDiscovery OnDemand was launched in February 2014 in response to a growing market need for full-featured eDiscovery tools that could easily be leveraged by law firms, partners and small and midsize businesses (SMBs) that didn’t have the desire or in-house expertise to manage on-site software. This innovative approach to eDiscovery allows customers to create as many per-matter environments that they want, for as long as they want, and then upload and process their own data without on-premise hardware or IT resources – all for a monthly, per gigabyte, all-inclusive subscription fee.

“HP Autonomy continues to build innovative solutions to meet our customer’s evolving demands for more control over their process and less on managing their IT infrastructure,”  said Mike Sullivan, general manager, eDiscovery and Information Archiving. “With HP eDiscovery OnDemand, our SaaS-based, self-service option, we are capitalizing on the cloud trend and offering a perfect alternative to fully hosted and on-premise arrangements that is designed to economically manage smaller to mid-size matters. As an industry leader in both cloud-based offerings and eDiscovery solutions, HP Autonomy is making its world-class technology available to all tiers of the market.”

HP Autonomy recently launched a special pricing program designed to help new customers easily transition to HP’s eDiscovery platform.
