    I worked at Autonomy full-time (more than an year)


    Interesting technology but for the most part, totally oversold. The existing customer base has not been served well and it is impossible to sell again to existing customers due to their poor experience.


    Management has been slow to remove the old Autonomy guard. The culture is very much at odds with traditional HP. In short the many of the core solutions do not work or are so heavyweight that it takes an army of consultants to make it work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integrate Autonomy into HP SW - align the sales teams so there is not so much duplication.
