Processing More than One Billion Documents A Month For Global Law Firms and Corporations
(PresseBox) (Cambridge, UK and San Francisco, Calif., ) Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a global leader in infrastructure software for the enterprise, today introduced the industry's most scalable end-to-end hosted eDiscovery solution. With 6,000 servers across five data centers, Autonomy is providing hosted eDiscovery solutions for the largest and most complex legal and regulatory matters. Autonomy applies the most advanced technology in its hosting centers, including analytics for Early Case Assessment (ECA), automatic categorization for prioritizing eDiscovery Review, language independence for international cases, and audio support required for financial services and subprime litigation cases.

"As litigation portfolios increase in size and complexity, law firms and corporations are demanding hosted eDiscovery solutions that offer high levels of scalability, security, speed of processing, as well as support for foreign languages and audio," said Dr. Mike Lynch, CEO of Autonomy. "Organizations often face new technology challenges that arise in large complex litigations. With Autonomy, since we develop all of our own technologies, we have the unique ability to partner with leading law firms and corporations to meet these challenges. Autonomy offers highly scalable, world-class data centers, experienced team and an end-to-end platform that allow customers to manage all data via a single interface regardless of language or file type, eliminating the risks inherent in passing it from vendor to vendor."

Autonomy's end-to-end hosted eDiscovery solution is a fully outsourced, comprehensive technology and services solution, providing data preparation, ECA with pre-review analytics, full EDD processing, advanced review and production, all on a powerful platform. The hosted environment is fully flexible yet secure, enabling multiple parties involved in litigation to work together on the identification of custodians and hot documents and review of responsive data, generating hard dollar ROI in terms of time saved during processing and review and a 50% cost savings when compared to other solutions. Because data is maintained with a single vendor, there is less risk of data spoliation, and chain of custody remains intact from beginning to end. Detailed reports can be provided to track the data at each step of the process, demonstrating an auditable and defensible practice in accordance with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP).

Autonomy's end-to-end hosted eDiscovery solution consists of:

- Aungate Investigator and Early Case Assessment enables legal teams to rapidly pre-review electronically stored information (ESI) and assesses the merits of a case using powerful and user-friendly analytics. Aungate Investigator allows legal professionals to accurately identify ESI as responsive, non-responsive or privileged, and prioritize that data in hours and days, instead of weeks or months.

- Introspect EDD On-Demand processes terabytes of ESI, including more than 100 languages and 1,000 data types, and intelligently filters and culls the data to quickly reduce volume and gain visibility to the information contained within massive data sets. The Introspect processing services team carefully manages the critical processes of batch tagging and exporting the resulting set of documents, de-duplicating and extracting the metadata and preparing documents in a litigation-ready format.

- Introspect Review and Production On-Demand provides a flexible high-performance online environment for combined image, native file and foreign language review, including voicemail messages and video files, multilevel foldering and full production. This massively scalable solution reduces costs by enhancing traditional keyword and Boolean search with conceptual understanding to automatically identify similar, near-duplicate documents, increasing efficiency with bulk coding and speeding the tagging of non-responsive data. Introspect ensures customer's search is FRCP-compliant and improves review and production effectiveness and quality.
