As a Fortune 200 company that is the world's leader in information storage and management, one of the largest software companies in the world, as well as a leader in information security, EMC has a differentiated ability to solve the eDiscovery challenge. The Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) reflects the reality that the eDiscovery challenge is, at its core, all about "Information Management" - how is the organization managing its (especially) unstructured content, and what policies are in place and being enforced, if any, in the first place? Then, when a new eDiscovery case hits - what processes and tools does it have, if any, to automate an otherwise reactive and expensive eDiscovery process, especially for collection, hold, analysis and review?
With EMC SourceOne, EMC is delivering a differentiated family of solutions to the marketplace - that allows organizations not only scalable enterprise archiving (and eDiscovery within the archive), but also fast to deploy appliances for in-house eDiscovery functionality to index 100s of types of content outside managed archives - "in the wild" - (for example on desktops, file shares, sharepoint, and many other content types). Once the index is created, robust eDiscovery functionality can be applied to the underlying content (for forensically sound collection, hold, analysis, and review) to drive significant cost out of the process, provide insight into huge volumes of information that was otherwise growing without being leveraged, as well as the ability to apply policy for classification, retention, deletion, privacy and security of the content.
EMC is already the company that the best organizations in the world trust to manage their information assets. Now, EMC's ability to securely and at massive scale deliver the above functionality - BOTH within and outside of archives and BOTH for proactive policies and for in-house eDiscovery - is differentiated and unique.
