Hello world!

Posted on December 17, 2009


main() { Printf( “Hello World\n”) }, here we go!

The first blog fully dedicated to eDiscovery and Information Management. There is more synergy to these two topics than one may think at first site. For more than 20 years, I have been active in this space, first with the famous ZyINDEX, which then became ZyIMAGE and now with the ZyLAB eDiscovery and Information Management Platform! Search is more important than ever, especially defensible Legal Search. Only with the right kind of search and text analytics tools can one control costs and risk in pending litigation. But at the end of the day, only proper information management will really solve the problem. We have to learn to manage our digital assets. We have to (re)learn the art of information retention, repurposing and if possible, destruction! Only then can we conquer Moore’s law that is not only doubling our computer power and storage capacity every 18 months, but also our legal bills. Computers partly cause our current problems, but we can also use computers to solve  them.

This is my passion and this is what I will blog about regularly. By sharing my experience and insigts, I can hopefully help public and commercial organizations to understand and ultimately to solve this problem by using the right ediscovery and information managent systems, understand the techniques behind them, share solid methodologies, best practices, cases, governance and more!
