VIENNA: Autonomy founder Mike Lynch has said that the company is working to incorporate its analytical capabilities into HP's vast range of hardware products including printers, desktops and laptops.
Lynch, who sold his company to HP for $10bn in August and is now HP's executive vice president of information, explained at HP's Discover event that the two firms' research and development teams have several products in the pipeline.
"A lot of work is going on between different business units at HP. Servers and Storage is obviously key, but the Personal Systems Group is going to come out with some stuff that was previously only for very large companies," he said.
"You're also going to see some really quite stunning technology coming out on the printing side as well, so it's going to appear all over HP."
Lynch also said that the deal with Autonomy was never in jeopardy, despite the upheaval at HP in the past few months, and that the companies have a clear approach for the future.
"The deal was approved by the board which Meg [Whitman] was on, so really there was very little change to that model. She gets it. She sees the future," he said.
"There are revenue synergies, selling stuff basically, and that's what's been concentrated on, although Autonomy still operates fairly autonomously from HP."
HP announced its first product using technology from Autonomy at the Discover event. Idol 10 is designed to allow businesses to manage and analyse structured and unstructured data.
