Electronic Data Discovery

  1. 1. Reduced Cost and Time-of-Retrieval by developing intelligenceover an existing Electronic Data Discovery tool fora Litigation Support Services Provider
  2. 2. T h e c l i e n t s e r v e s l e a d i n gcorporations, law firms andgovernment agencies through theirbroad range of litigation and businessconsulting services. Dealing withlarge amount of data, the clientwanted a seamless electronic datadiscovery tool that would providethem digital archival and retrieval ofdata so as to ensure security andreliability for future reference. Thec l i e n t a p p r o a c h e d S i g m aInfosolutions to leverage theirexpertise on Electronic DataDiscovery and develop a robust toolthat could automate large scale datasearch and retrieval. This tool willintegrate with the suite of e-discovery solutions already offeredby the client.Headquartered in Seattle, the client is a premier provider of broad range oflitigation & business consulting services to corporations, law firms andgovernment agencies across NorthAmerica.The ClientExecutive SummaryThe client initially used DT Search for retrieving sensitive data from itscustomers’ network. However, every time the discovery needed to beperformed, a thin client had to be installed on its customers network. Thislimited flexibility resulted in the client having to manually share and unsharethe drives in the network and also manually copy the information to a specificlocation. The client wanted a domain expert to design, build,and test anelectronic data discovery tool that would provide centralized access to allnecessary data needed for zero defect archival & retrieval. They also wantedthe tool to automatically save a copy of the extracted data onto a preferredlocation and archive to a common repository when the client plugged backinto its own network. This solution would also improve the overallperformance of the EDD process.Business Casesales@sigmainfo.netChallengesThe client was often working with sensitive data and could not afford tocompromise on the integrity of the data. This was a significant challenge forthe successful operation of this tool. Also, the tool needed to remove tracesof all activity to ensure security compliance and prevent networkvulnerability. Since the client would plug itself into their customers networkduring this discovery, the tool had to have the capability to crawl across thenetwork, share the drives, extract data and then unshare drives to ensureminimal data pilferage risk.While testing, it was a challenge to simulate up to 1700 boxes and such largedata silos. Preventing network hacks and vulnerability on the network duringextraction was a significant challenge.SolutionSigma Infosolution’s team worked closely with the clients team to design anddevelop MARCO - comprising of 3 modules namely eDiscovery, Indexing, andSearch Engine. MARCO was implemented as an intelligent solution layer onto30% time savingsduring discoveryand retrievalof e-documents“
  3. 3. Technology J2EE .NET components SQL Server 2000 database used forstorage. Compatible with Oracle &MySQL Hibernate used as ORM tool forefficient connection pooling Supports exchange server indexing(compatible with Exchange Server2000 & aboveBusiness BenefitsKey benefits included: Cost effective tool to review alarge set of data in their nativeformat Faster indexing at a speed of 4-5GB of data per hour Supports Microsoft Exchangeindexing along with files systemsand various document formats Supports all the searching featuresextended by DT Search License Free Software withcomplete ownership Capability to support context basedsearch for analysisthe existing DTsearch framework to develop a centralized web-basedapplication that would offer the combined powerful search capabilitiesacross an enterprise network. MARCO supported all the basic search typeslike boolean, phrase or proximity based, along with fuzzy searching,relevancy ranking and natural language based searching. MARCO was built tobe installed on an individual laptop of the clients executive and whenconnected to an enterprises network would act as a portable server tocompletely automate the document retrieval process. It would: Automatically crawl into the network to detect the numerous MicrosoftWindows OS based heterogeneous boxes like e-mail servers, networkservers, backup tapes, desktops, laptops, PDAs, etc. Automatically share main drives of these boxes on the network toperform indexing Index all the documents stored in various electronic file formats Perform search on the indexed set of documents to acquire the data asper clients requisites Automatically save a local repository of the entire set of documentssearched on to the clients portable server Automatically un-share all the various systems attached Perform filtering by removing duplicate and other non-responsive filesto retrieve the exact set of e-documentsThe entire solution was developed, tested and deployed with zero varianceon schedule and budget.www.sigmainfo.net
