Morgan Stanley Recognized by HP for Enterprise Information Strategy

Global financial institution wins HP Software award for achieving superior cost savings, compliance and efficiency with HP Autonomy

PALO ALTO, Calif. — HP Autonomy today announced that Morgan Stanley has won the 2013 HP Software Customer Impact Award for Information Optimization.

The HP Software Customer Impact Awards celebrate organizations that are using HP software to convert bold ideas into outcomes that change the way we work and live. Morgan Stanley was recognized with an HP Software Customer Impact Award for its major success in improving employee efficiency, saving money and ensuring regulatory compliance through its use of HP Autonomy technology.

Morgan Stanley has nearly 80,000 employees and contractors spread across more than 1,200 offices in 43 countries. As the firm works to deliver the finest thinking, products and services to its clients, it creates, consumes, disseminates and maintains huge volumes of data in the form of communications and other enterprise content.  

In order to derive value from this information, as well as comply with regulatory requirements around firm communications, Morgan Stanley partnered with HP Autonomy to deploy a cloud-based information archiving solution. Building upon this relationship, Morgan Stanley selected HP Autonomy to also drive its supervision, surveillance, enterprise search and web content management applications, creating a complete enterprise information strategy.

“We had a series of different legacy systems in place to manage our data, from email archiving at the back end through to multiple different public-facing web services,” said Al Furman, executive director, Morgan Stanley. “We first deployed HP Autonomy’s technology to provide a secure cloud archive for our information assets, and then chose to expand our deployment to enable enterprise search and web content management.”

With the deployment of HP Autonomy’s technology, Morgan Stanley was able to implement a global archiving platform for all 80,000 of its employees and contractors, including supervision capabilities for more than 35,000 users. This helped the company retire a secondary email archive, releasing 47 data center racks across four regions, resulting in substantial cost savings. 

HP Autonomy’s flagship technology, the Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL), is powering search for more than 30 internal and external applications. HP Autonomy technology also enables Morgan Stanley to deliver personalized web content for all employees and contractors, with support for more than 500 individual content contributors.

“Morgan Stanley’s deployment of HP Autonomy’s technology provides a comprehensive information optimization strategy for the business, and is a great example of what organizations can achieve with a single cohesive platform, rather than a series of disparate point solutions,” said Robert Youngjohns, general manager, HP Autonomy. “We are delighted that Morgan Stanley has been recognized for its forward-thinking approach to information optimization.”
