Common definition: the investigation of any kind of computing or digital device.
Manage-in-Place provides organizations with complete information governance while leaving the document on the source file system. This module allows our clients to search and analyze petabytes of data on disparate file servers without the need to archive that data. Our client can now use this module to search for and analyze their data at the touch of a button and to perform true early case assessment before a lawsuit has been filed or discovery requests served.
Once the documents have been searched for, analyzed and found to be potentially relevant, our new Automatic Document Collection module copies the files (with metadata intact of course) into the archive. The client does not need to ask for the IT Department’s help or hire an expensive eDiscovery vendor to perform a manual collection – now it is all automatic. And because the data is preserved for litigation so quickly there is little chance of a spoliation sanction.
Key Learning Point is that the automated collection feature in software today is increasing in popularity as legal teams and corporations look for ways to manage a defensible process.
