Want an Automated, Easy and Inexpensive Way to Process Your Data? Read On – eDiscovery Trends

A couple of months ago, we had a laugh at Ralph Losey’s post that took a humorous look at the scenario where it’s Friday at 5 and you need data processed to be reviewed over the weekend.  It was a funny take on a real problem that most of us have experienced from time to time.  But, there may be a solution to this problem that’s automated, easy and inexpensive.

Anytime we talk about something that relates to our company, CloudNine Discovery, we always add the “shameless plug warning” to let people know that the topic relates to our software or a service we offer.  If you’re a regular reader of our blog, you know it doesn’t happen that often.  But, we have just made a major announcement that we believe will interest many of you.

Today, we are officially announcing the release of OnDemand Discovery®, our new application that enables you to upload your native data and have it processed and loaded directly into OnDemand®, our cloud-based online review tool.

It’s a 100% automated upload process that includes native file extraction from container files (such as Outlook PSTs and ZIP Files), metadata & text extraction and indexing, OCR of image files, duplicate identification and HTML creation, streamlining the process to get started reviewing documents for discovery.  The process automatically notifies you when we’ve received your data and then again when we’ve loaded and indexed it and when all processing (including advanced analytics for early data assessment) is complete.  So, you never have to wonder about the status of your processing job.

It’s ideal for situations where you receive data late on a Friday afternoon and have to get it ready to review over the weekend and also ideal for preparing small batches of files for review without having to run them through cumbersome processing software built for multiple gigabytes, not a small batch of files.  OnDemand Discovery is designed to handle two megabytes, two gigabytes or two hundred gigabytes or more!

There are three easy steps to give it a try:

  1. Sign up for a free account here.  You will receive an email with your credentials (including temporary password), to get started.
  2. When you first log in, you’ll see a button to “Upload Data”.  That will take you to a form to download the OnDemand Discovery client (which is a Windows based client application that resides on your desktop) for uploading data for processing.  Download and install the client to upload data.
  3. Once the client is downloaded and installed, launch the client, log in with your newly created credentials and simply follow the wizard prompts to upload the desired data set and put it into the project of your choice (which you can create if it doesn’t already exist).  It’s that easy!
