Information Governance (InfoGovernance) is the specification of decision rights and an accountability framework to encourage desirable behavior in the valuation, creation, storage, use, archiving and deletion of information. It includes the processes, roles, standards and metrics that ensure the effective and efficient use of information to enable an organization to achieve its goals. Information governance should be an element in planning an enterprise's information architecture.

High-Speed eDiscovery Processing: Capacity Comparison of Two Providers

By Lexbe
Lexbe provides eDiscovery software and services for legal professionals at law firms, corporations, and government agencies.  
In this white paper, Lexbe briefly describes a demonstration conducted to evaluate the speed and effectiveness of the Lexbe eDiscovery Processing System (“LEPS”) to process and convert the EDRM Enron Dataset.
LEPS converted the entire 53 GBs of the EDRM Enron Dataset, with 5 million page equivalents, into industry-standard TIFF images in only 5.3 hours. To accomplish this task in this short time, LEPS programmatically deployed and utilized over 60 parallel server instances, and maintained a sustained throughput rate of 240 GBs/day (23 Million pages/day) for Native to TIFF processing. This is a substantial increase in industry TIFFing capability. By comparison, an existing industry leader, Xerox Litigation Services, has a company-wide capacity of 5 Million pages per day, or less than 25% of Lexbe’s capacity.
