Open Text Extends eDiscovery Offering



    
    Support for Early Case Assessment of Electronically Stored Information
    Extended to Open Text eDOCS Solution; Helps Legal Industry Address
    eDiscovery Issues
    

    LEGALTECH 2009, NY, Feb. 3 /CNW/ - Open Text (NASDAQ:   OTEX, TSX: OTC), a
global leader in Enterprise Content Management (ECM) software, today announced
that it has extended its new eDiscovery solution to its Open Text eDOCS
customers. Now organizations, particularly corporate legal departments, will
be able to significantly minimize the need for third-party processing and
control the high costs of legal reviews by culling irrelevant information.
    Launched in December
(http://www.opentext.com/2/global/press-release-details.html?id=2154), Open
Text eDiscovery Early Case Assessment is being offered through a strategic
relationship with Recommind, the leader in search-powered information risk
management (IRM). The solution combines Recommind's Insite Legal Hold
application with the Open Text ECM Suite. The combination not only addresses
the critical need for eDiscovery in an age of growing regulatory and legal
challenges, it also lets customers tightly integrate eDiscovery within their
broader ECM initiatives. Open Text eDOCS customers will gain expanded
eDiscovery capabilities woven into their overall content, records and email
management practices.
    "This announcement furthers our commitment to Open Text eDOCS customers
and expands on our leadership within the legal industry," said Kirk Roberts,
EVP & President, Integrated ECM Group at Open Text. "Additional eDiscovery
support meets a critical need for law firms and corporate legal departments to
be able to assess, collect, preserve and process electronically stored
information that resides in Open Text eDOCS, which is often an organization's
system of record."
    "Extending the functionality of the Early Case Assessment solution to
include Open Text eDOCS is a key development in addressing the need to
minimize information risk and increase litigation and investigatory efficiency
for many companies," said Robert Tennant, CEO of Recommind. "This is a natural
extension of the Open Text eDOCS search capabilities we developed for our
MindServer Search customers and an important next step in our Open Text
partnership to deliver the Early Case Assessment solution to a wider range of
enterprises and offer our current and prospective customers new levels of
speed and accuracy for their data management and eDiscovery initiatives."
