Records Management, E-Discovery, Compliance

Unveils new enhancements to Fusion Posted January 31, 2013

An ongoing debate among e-discovery professionals is over which is the better platform for hosting document search and review: the cloud or a local appliance. Among those who favor an appliance, a common argument is that bringing e-discovery in-house will reduce costs. But will it? One way to find out is to analyze the total cost of ownership (TCO) of cloud-based and appliance—based e-discovery platforms. Only by laying out all of the expenses required to support an application-including infrastructure, technology, staff and ongoing operational expenses—­can one accurately evaluate its cost. . . .

Three elements characterize superior preparation for e-discovery: good document housekeeping; precise extraction and distillation capabilities; and unified workflow from the left through to the right of the EDRM model. This article talks about the latter two, but it's useful to quickly touch on housekeeping. Good housekeeping means saving, and properly categorizing, only what makes sense from the practical, regulatory, and legal points of view. The cleaner the corpus of documents, the better you are able to respond as discovery progresses through early case assessment, review, production and litigation. . . . Posted January 29, 2013

In the business world, the use of mobile devices such as smartphones, cell phones and tablet devices is proliferating. This presents enormous challenges for attorneys who oversee electronic discovery (e-discovery) for organizations.

As of February 2012, 88% of American adults have a cell phone, 46% have a smartphone, 57% have a laptop, 19% have an ebook reader and 19% own a tablet, according to Mobify (mobify.com). Mobile devices are growing increasingly sophisticated, and the market shows no sign of slowing down.. . . .

Offering legal teams a forward-thinking solution to the problem of big data, the topic of computer-assisted review is the conversation du jour in the e-discovery marketplace. There's good reason for that. According to a recent Rand Corporation survey, document review is the single most expensive step in the discovery process. Logically, the option to reduce time wasted on irrelevant documents can make a big difference in any case, particularly on costs. Therefore, when it comes to document review, legal teams see huge value in the ability to quickly separate the wheat from the chaff. . . . Posted January 29, 2013

The balance—and I could call it tension—between the corporate legal counsel department and their IT/technology counterparts has never been greater. Nor has the need for cooperation between them ever been greater. That was my opening gambit in this month's KMWorld White Paper opening article. It is not unknown to me that the role of IT versus ("versus" seems a little strong, but I'll get to that in a minute) the legal side of the house has ratcheted up a few notches in recent years. In past years (all of five years ago) it was IT's job to collect and "high-level analyze" (meaning "sort") the various documents, email, financial content, etc. . . . Posted January 29, 2013

"Corporations are abuzz over information governance (IG) because it conceptually represents painful macro trends that are hitting them: Explosive growth of all types of data (a.k.a. big data, the other hot buzz concept); and intensifying focus on governance. The data challenges are volume, velocity, variety and complexity. For governance, it's the unrelenting pressure to ensure that the right policies are in place to reduce exposure to legal and/or regulatory actions and cost. . . . " Posted August 28, 2012

"As today's enterprises begin to redefine their infrastructures and management roadmaps to deal with big data, leading companies have begun to pursue a new vision of what their governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solution offerings should contain. Gone are the old-school strategies—adding storage and building mega-repositories to enforce policies in one place. In the new paradigm are "active information governance" approaches that leverage indexing technologies to discover, analyze and act in real-time on large volumes of data in their native environments. The Core Information...." Posted August 28, 2012

"As a natural result of the corporate transition from paper documents to electronic documents, e-discovery has been an important topic for several years. Nighty-eight percent (98%) of all documents now originate electronically and most exist in unstructured and unmanaged repositories, not managed enterprise content management (ECM) systems. All of this important electronically stored information (ESI) has made the requirements of e-discovery far-reaching. . . ." Posted August 28, 2012

"In just a few years, social media has gone from a cutting-edge phenomenon to a mainstream channel that corporations use to engage clients, partners, and vendors. As a result, business leaders responsible for information management must explore this pervasive communication channel and understand how its use may impact the organization's ability to manage risk. As the nature of communication between employees, customers and businesses evolves, corporations are leveraging social media networks and using mobile. . . " Posted August 28, 2012

"Information governance: Two words regularly used by top executives to describe new programs for complying with the plethora of government mandates, the proliferation of content and the increasing legal and operational costs associated with corporate information. Information governance programs are also being developed to address new trends such as cloud computing, social media platforms, management of big data and "bring your own device" (BYOD) initiatives. For many organizations. . . . " Posted August 28, 2012

""Information governance" is all over the news. It's a relatively new and buzzy discipline, but trending fast toward general acceptance. I like when that happens, but it's not an area in which I am tremendously well-versed. So when I caught this assignment, I sought out the best person I could think of to have a chat. Tamir Sigal is the senior marketing professional at RSD. He's also a friendly and talkative dude, and has become a friend. And on top of all that, he also has some strong opinions regarding the state of the art in information governance, and more..." Posted August 28, 2012
