Socha-Gelbmann to Lead 5th EDRM Kick-Off Meeting in May

Two New Projects for Jobs and Information Management to Be Launched at the Annual Meeting by the Leading e-Discovery Industry Group

ST. PAUL, MN -- (Marketwire) -- 04/23/09 -- The Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM), an industry group created to develop and establish practical guidelines and standards for electronic discovery, is holding its 5th EDRM Kick-Off Meeting in St. Paul, Minn., on May 13 and 14, 2009. At this meeting, EDRM participants will meet to:

--  Celebrate the conclusion of the EDRM IV projects -- Evergreen, Model
    Code of Conduct, Metrics, XML, Search and Data Set
--  Launch two new projects -- EDRM Jobs and the Information Management
    Reference Model
--  Renew six projects in EDRM's current groups: Evergreen, Model Code of
    Conduct, Metrics, XML, Search and Data Set
--  Discuss current trends and market advancements projected for 2009
    

Attendees, comprising e-discovery leaders from corporations, law firms, technology vendors and service providers, as well as individual consultants, will gather at The Saint Paul Hotel, in St. Paul, Minn., for the two-day meeting.

"We are very much looking forward to this year's kick-off meeting," said George Socha, principal of Socha Consulting and co-leader of EDRM with Tom Gelbmann. "We've already seen tremendous progress this year with the completion of the EDRM Search Guide and the Metrics code set, in addition to strengthening the content within the original model. Continuing to refine the definitions and processes for managing e-discovery is critical, especially in light of today's economic climate. The talent, skills and expertise of the 90 to 100 individuals anticipated to attend this year's meeting will help us build on our current successes and strengthen the standards provided through the EDRM project."

Open invitation

Invitations are still open to corporations, law firms, e-discovery vendors and individual thought leaders interested in participating in EDRM and the 2009 kick-off meeting. The cost to participate is based on the type and size of the organization, as well as the number of projects in which the organization chooses to participate. Individuals are also welcome to participate for a fee; however EDRM is currently waiving the participation fee for individuals who have been laid off and are currently unemployed.

About EDRM

Launched in May 2005, the EDRM Project was created to address the lack of standards and guidelines in the electronic discovery market -- a problem identified in the 2003 and 2004 Socha-Gelbmann Electronic Discovery surveys as a major concern for vendors and consumers alike. The completed reference model provides a common, flexible and extensible framework for the development, selection, evaluation and use of electronic discovery products and services. Expanding on the base defined with the Reference Model, the EDRM projects were expanded in May 2006 to include the EDRM Metrics and the EDRM XML projects. Over the past four years, the EDRM project has comprised more than 170 organizations, including 115 service and software providers, 43 law firms, three industry groups and 12 corporations involved with e-discovery.
