Visual Document Classification: Changing the Dynamics of Information Governance

If an organization can’t accurately classify its documents it ends up either drowning in documents because it keeps all of them or risks legal sanctions or operating problems because it discards records it needed to keep. Classification is the prerequisite to any type of information governance. All other automated document classification systems are based on text analysis. These text-based classification systems have one insurmountable problem – they can’t analyze or classify documents that don’t have text or have only poor-quality text. In industries like oil & gas this is a huge problem because in some collections over half of the documents are non-textual.

Predictive Coding In Practice: Success Stories From Three Years Of Predictive Coding

The e-discovery community is buzzing about predictive coding, and with good reason. The volume of Electronically Stored Information (ESI) is expanding at a breakneck pace. Every two years the amount of digital data is expected to almost double. Predictably, e-discovery costs are rising.

Is Your Data An Asset Or A Liability?

Is Your Data An Asset Or A Liability?

The proliferation of data and how it is being managed — or in most cases mismanaged — is causing more organizations to question whether they have information assets or liabilities. Two of the major drivers pushing organizations to finally get their data under control are costs and risks.“People are starting to get interested in reducing their overall data in many cases for regulatory issues,” said Dera Nevin, managing director and an electronic discovery lawyer at re:Discovery Law PC.Nevin, who was speaking to the International Legal Technology Association last week at an event hosted by Norton Rose Fulbright Canada LLP, [...]

Information Governance Lessons from the Six Blind Men and the Elephant

Information Governance Lessons from the Six Blind Men and the Elephant

Most of us have heard about the parable of the six blind men and the elephant – it may actually be the first recorded instance of faceted classification. Six blind men touched different parts of an elephant and each described a completely different thing based on their own perspective or “view” of the elephant: The one who felt a tusk reported it as a pipe, the one who felt an ear reported a fan, the belly was reported as a wall, the trunk as a branch, a leg was reported as a pillar and the tail was described as being [...]
