  24. 24. Why is a Data Set Important Functionality Testing E-Discovery and Migration Prototyping and Smoke Testing Scalability Testing Low High Fewer More Volume File Types Challenge Difficult-to-find files Internal validation Functionality Scalability Public validation Ability to compare performance Publish benchmarks
  25. 25. Project Goals Collect data Large in size Diverse in content Free to use Classify data Ensure easy use Provide data Identify delivery methods To support Development Evaluation Benchmarking
  26. 26. Data Gathering http://edrm.net/dataset Problem Not a lot of publically available data Solution Outreach to e-discovery & related organizations Partnerships
  27. 27. Data Classification Problem Are you covering enough? What do numbers mean? What about multiple versions of the same file? Solution Reference classification for development, RFIs, etc. Vendor Support Vendor A 1,000+ file types Vendor B 400+ file types Vendor C 330+ file types Website A 13,000+ file types Challenges Embedded Files Nested Files (ZIPs within ZIPs) Windows IRM Password protection
  28. 28. Status 2008-2009 activities New EDRM 2008-2009 project Examined may possible data sources Launching data gathering website Created initial classification lists Ongoing goals Collect, classify & provide data Attract more working group members
