Content Standardization: Why Litigation and Classification are Related

Content Standardization: Why Litigation and Classification are Related

Litigation readiness and classification readiness are closely related. If you standardize your content into high definition text searchable PDFs, you eliminate issues around dark data. By digitally preparing content in this manner you reduce the ‘garbage-in-garbage- out’ scenario that most RIM programs suffer from and, as many of our customers have found, you’re better able to automatically categorize your data or support other downstream processes. Once data is classified, you’re ready for litigation, not to mention all the other benefits having an organized content management system offers. You will know where data relevant to a matter is and you will be able to easily collect that data.
