Cloud Innovators Create a Body and Soul for Big Data

“It’s alive! It’s alive!” Thus spoke Dr. Henry Frankenstein of his creation in the iconic horror film classic from 1931, as does the main character in Mel Brooks’ 1974 comedy Young Frankenstein. It’s Alive is also the title of a little known 1974 B horror movie about a murderous infant. Can the same be said of computers or the data and information that inhabits them?

Expanding the Enterprise eDiscovery Solutions Landscape

Parity Research profiles 46 ediscovery solutions and services providers in four key dimensions: Review, Services, Integration and Enablement.
Litigation support continues to be the main driver or “trigger” for ediscovery solutions adoption, but it is by no means the only good reason. The same content and data that needs to be classified, indexed, secured and stored to enable ediscovery tools to collect potentially responsive electronically stored information (ESI) is a potential goldmine for other departments or lines of business throughout the organization.
