Autonomy Unveils Most Advanced Audio Processing Solution for Law Firms

Provides Lawyers With Unprecedented Access to Voicemails, Depositions, Digital Dictations, and Other Audio Recordings to Improve Efficiency and Effectiveness

NEW YORK - GearUp 2009 Executive Briefing Roadshow,, April 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a global leader in infrastructure software for the enterprise, today unveiled the world's most advanced audio processing solution for law firms. Integrated into Autonomy iManage WorkSite and Universal Search, the solution provides lawyers with unprecedented access to all audio assets on a single platform, including voicemails to and from clients, depositions, and podcasts or audio recordings for continuing legal education (CLE). Lawyers can quickly and easily locate information locked in audio format thus boosting productivity, cutting firm costs and significantly improving client service.

"The integration of advanced audio search and processing capabilities into WorkSite is a sector-defining development and will bring significant value to our lawyers," said John Sroka, Chief Information Officer for Duane Morris, a leading Am Law 100 law firm. "As a long time iManage customer we are excited about the rapid rate of innovation, and our ability to leverage our investment in WorkSite to continually improve the tools that empower our professionals to deliver the highest quality of service to our clients."

According to the 2008 ILTA survey of top law firms, close to 50% of law firms now use unified messaging, accessing voicemail via their email client. However, many firms are ill-equipped to efficiently access and manage this increasingly important form of information.

Unlike legacy methods for audio processing, which require costly manual human intervention, Autonomy fully integrates audio into all phases of a law firm's business process from routine case management to litigation. Built on Autonomy's Meaning Based Computing platform which can bring meaning to data in any format, this technology indexes the audio without the need for any prior transcription and develops an understanding of key concepts in the audio stream, identifying speakers in hundreds of hours of audio recordings and linking audio with other data types, including email. The same unique audio search and processing technology, which reduces the volume of audio recordings to be reviewed by up to 95%, is also available in Autonomy eDiscovery products.

"Audio is an increasingly common data type for law firms that must be managed and accessible like any other data format," commented Anthony Bettencourt, CEO of Autonomy Interwoven. "Law firms need fast and accurate access to depositions and increasingly rely on audio and podcasts for continuing legal education. Autonomy offers the world's most advanced audio processing capabilities enabling legal teams to quickly process all audio assets on a single platform, and cross reference this traditionally untapped format with other valuable content in the law firm."

Audio support is an add-on module to WorkSite as well as iManage Universal Search.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Over the course of two days, in addition to insightful conversations and presentations delving into the industry's current pressing challenges, there was considerable buzz about digital transformation and how it is enabling global enterprises to accelerate business growth. Blockchain has been a term that people hear but don't quite understand. The most common myths about blockchain include the assumption that it is private, or that there is only one blockchain, and the idea that blockchain is...
Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
