Reduce the costs of eDiscovery with transparent, accurate, and defensible workflows
Analysis and review comprise the majority of costs associated with eDiscovery. Sifting through the mountains of documents and e-mails associated with a legal matter requires more time, money, and resources than ever before. Corporations, law firms, and service providers are all looking for ways to cut their expenses. As a result, this over-burdened part of the eDiscovery process is a prime target. Reducing the amount of time and the number of resources required for review, analysis, and processing will substantially reduce the overall cost of eDiscovery. There has never been a more critical time for cost savings than now.
The EMC SourceOne™ eDiscovery – Kazeon analysis and review module addresses the rising costs of eDiscovery by providing legal professionals with the tools they need to quickly preview and tag documents, filter non-relevant information with a mouse click, view search results distribution, and effectively manage cases and reviewers all from one easy-to-use interface. EMC SourceOne eDiscovery – Kazeon analysis and review provides a defensible, accurate, and transparent workflow for investigations and litigation responsiveness. Corporations, service providers, and law firms can avoid the high cost of manual eDiscovery and use fewer resources with EMC SourceOne eDiscovery – Kazeon analysis and review. EMC provides both in-place and target analysis/review for the best use of resources.
Previewer, interactive tag panel, and hit highlighting
The EMC SourceOne eDiscovery – Kazeon built-in previewer is fast and dynamic. With the click of a mouse, the previewer is refreshed to show the formatted contents of the selected search result. The interactive configurable tag panel located above the previewer panel makes docu¬ment tagging quick, easy, and intuitive. Hit highlighting within the previewer allows for the quickly locating the relevant text in the document. Also supported is native application viewing.
Analysis and culling
The main capabilities that allow users to rapidly review vast amounts of documents are dynamic and interactive concept clusters, keyword and topic reports, and search query analysis. Dynamic concept clusters present key concepts closely associated with the search that is being run. Unlike previous generations of concept search, EMC’s concepts are dynamic and relevant to the actual search query being executed which is essential for accurate and complete eDiscovery. Keyword and topic reports provide a summary of document and email keyword frequency and case topics. Query analysis helps separate nonrelevant terms from relevant terms, which is especially useful for wildcard or fuzzy searches. Word expansion helps ensure that various forms of a root word or syllable are taken into account during a search.
E-mail thread analytics
E-mail thread view provides superior e-mail analytical capabili¬ties for eDiscovery users trying to determine who said what to whom and when. E-mails across e-mail servers (i.e., Exchange and Domino), archives (i.e., Enterprise Vault), and PST files are threaded and presented in a chronological tree diagram that depicts the multiple levels of senders in an easy-to-understand format. Reviewers quickly see forward and reply history for all relevant email threads.
Search result visualization
Search result visualization provides graphical analysis with interactive drilldown and chart rotation. The sophisticated graphical analysis view displays the composition and distribu¬tion of documents and emails returned from a search query or associated with an entire case. Reviewers narrow the collec¬tion using dynamically populated filters to view the impact on the overall distribution. Direct drilldown from summary charts provides faceted navigation, while click-and-hold chart rotation allows users to view all segments of a pie chart.

Transparent search removes the guesswork from search queries and shows the actual query executed by the search engine—filters and all. Search report shows the base query and all filters that were applied including result filters, review filters, query analysis filters, and concept filters. This printable report helps the reviewer and supervisor ensure that their searches are accurate, transparent and defensible.
Highlighted search snippets
Search snippets and hit highlighting allow the reviewer to quickly understand the context of the hit and often this is enough to determine relevancy—without ever opening the document. The most relevant snippets in the document or email are highlighted and displayed directly in the search results window.
Case-based management ensures that legal supervisors and reviewers review only what is pertinent to their case. Reviewers from outside counsel see only the information they need to see. Service providers working on multiple cases have a secure and definite separation of case documents and emails. Legal supervisors can easily track the progress of case review, as well as view and export custodian and data maps for meet-and-confer sessions.
