Brava for Legal ISE!

No really. Informative Graphics Corporation (news, site) announced a partnership with Trinity Technologies that will integrate IGC's Brava with Trinity's Legal ISE suite.

The suite acts as both a content management and legal discovery platform for EMC Documentum clients and now plans to offer e-viewing, collaboration and redaction options courtesy of Brava and Redact-It Enterprise.

Minimizing Risks

Companies are finding that to effectively manage and preserve electronic records they need a combined solution so as to minimize the costs associated with outsourcing to third party legal firms, as well as the risks associated with legal headaches, like, um, litigation.

Not to mention the fact that the ediscovery is growing faster than our recession. A recent survey by Socha-Gelbmann predicts that come next year, ediscovery will have grown 15 percent, surpassing $US 4.6 billion. It's no bailout, but a considerable amount, nonetheless, when you consider it's a figure that may keep companies from being bailed out.

Enhancing ECM

As a part of the EMC Documentum Enterprise Content Management (ECM) Suite, Brava offers a variety of formats in which images, CAD files and print-capture formats (TIFF, PDF, XPS) can be viewed.

Coupled with Redact-It, which can automatically remove sensitive content through user-defined policy-based controls, users can benefit from document security with embedded controls for authorized document access inside and outside an organization.

Linking eDiscovery with ECM

The president of Trinity Technologies, Joseph P. Morray, Jr, calls the integration an "end-to-end solution" that lets users review, classify and redact documents so as to prepare for effective eDiscovery and records management.  Companies can no longer afford to leave the loop between eDiscovery and ECM open. Where one begins the other ends and that makes for effective management.
