IBM Helps Compliance Battle

ARMONK, N.Y. -- IBM (NYSE:IBM) today introduced new Enterprise Content Management (ECM) software designed to help clients meet challenging legal discovery requirements. The new IBM eDiscovery solutions extend IBMs ECM software platform to enable organizations to proactively take control of electronically-stored information across the enterprise, helping to reduce eDiscovery costs and improve responsiveness to litigation.

IBM’s eDiscovery software helps companies manage the entire eDiscovery process by enabling them to automate the process of collecting, searching and classifying critical information across multiple content sources, while maintaining security and the ability to track changes. The software will allow companies to move from scattered, point-solution approaches to a disciplined approach that controls electronic information, helps support Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) compliance, manages risk and delivers ongoing operational benefits.

“In today’s litigious environment, legal discovery and industry regulations are driving us to address the way we store, manage and retrieve information,” said Rashid Mahmood, Lotus Notes Systems Manager, The Thomas Miller Group. “IBM’s eDiscovery offerings will help us manage the rapidly growing in-house requirements for litigation-driven electronic discovery, while helping us alleviate corporate compliance concerns.”
