bluesource and DiscoveryLogix Reduce eDiscovery Costs By 30%

bluesource and DiscoveryLogix solve most pressing eDiscovery concerns for enterprises by integrating technology, best practice methodologies and legal expertise

DALLAS, Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- bluesource, a global leader in complex data archiving, eDiscovery and archive migrations, and DiscoveryLogix partner to offer comprehensive eDiscovery readiness program.

According to a recent survey of global General Counsel by the eDiscovery Solutions Group the number one eDiscovery issue plaguing large organizations is managing the cost of eDiscovery. This new offering is designed to mitigate costs throughout the data lifecycle.

" bluesource clients look to us to provide best of breed technology infrastructure and implementation services for their eDiscovery projects." said Matthew Edwards, President bluesource, "By partnering with DiscoveryLogix we now have the opportunity to offer legal guidance as an integrated part of our core service. We're pleased to offer the industry's most comprehensive level of governance services as we continue on our mission to reduce the level of effort required for corporations to reach a high level of information governance at an affordable rate."

Key components of the combined service include:

  • Define the requirements of a holistic, defensible litigation electronic discovery (e-Discovery) response and workflow.
  • Design, manage and upgrade, as needed, best of breed technology infrastructure required for eDiscovery
  • Identify gaps and opportunities for improvement in the organizations current e-Discovery Legal Data Lifecycle using the D-Logix discovery readiness process criticality scorecard to score the present state of readiness.
  • Make remedial recommendations in the context of near term tactical, operational and longer term corporate strategic considerations that will help the IT organization achieve a state that will support sustainable e-Discovery capabilities in a fluid and highly complex business and regulatory environment. 
  • Provide an implementation plan, including training, that is minimally disruptive to ongoing IT operational mandates.

"Enhancing the tasks associated with eDiscovery by front loading data classification (proactively classifying data in the enterprise as opposed to reactively doing so) can reduce collection, processing and review costs significantly", explains Richard E. Davis, JD  "This is because there is typically an over collection of data because of insufficiently classified data which results in "data bloat" being propagated into processing and review."

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the most profound change in personal and enterprise IT since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago. All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades.
"There is a natural synchronization between the business models, the IoT is there to support ,” explained Brendan O'Brien, Co-founder and Chief Architect of Aria Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at the 15th International Cloud Expo®, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...

There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
