Hewlett-Packard says the next version of Autonomy IDOL links the data-analysis tool more deeply into the company’s key big-data technologies.

Version 10.5 of IDOL, which is designed to extract meaning from unstructured data, increases integration with open-source distributed computing software Hadoop, HP’s Vertica columnar database, and the company’s ArcSight security analytics.

IDOL 10.5, launched this week, is also more robust and manageable than earlier versions, according to HP, with an improved admin console.

“All the things we’re doing with IDOL 10.5 are to do with performance and the use of the technology in the cloud,” said HP Autonomy chief technology officer Fernando Lucini.

With HP IDOL for Hadoop, functions such as sentiment analysis, clustering and entity extraction can be embedded into Hadoop nodes, allowing businesses to run more advanced analytics on, for example, customer behaviour, security, and operations.
