Overview
Bottom rule

IBM eDiscovery solutions should be an integral part of an organization's information lifecycle governance strategy. Rigorous electronic discovery (e-discovery) is a key enabler for the defensible disposal of enterprise data that no longer has value but that increases IT costs and legal risks. Largely due to the rising volume of data created annually, meeting e-discovery obligations can be one of an organization's largest uncontrolled business costs, with high risks that are driven by litigation, investigations, and audits.

The demands relating to e-discovery are also expanding due to more frequent corporate governance inquiries spawned by increasingly stringent legal, regulatory, and operational governance requirements. These business challenges understandably lead organizations to seek agile, practical, in-house solutions to swiftly gain legal insights to determine early case strategies and reduce litigation costs.

IBM eDiscovery Manager V2.2.1 and IBM eDiscovery Analyzer V2.2.1 are part of the IBM Information Lifecycle Governance solution for eDiscovery Management. The IBM eDiscovery Management solution is designed to help you proactively identify and hold relevant electronically stored information (ESI) and deliver in-house, agile, litigation responses, and early case assessment with advanced content analytics. This increases the defensibility of e-discovery and corporate governance processes and enables the reduction of IT costs through the disposal of data that is no longer needed.

Description

IBM eDiscovery Manager V2.2.1 and IBM eDiscovery Analyzer V2.2.1

As social software such as IBM Connections becomes increasingly embedded in how companies collaborate and innovate, legal teams recognized the importance of this content as potentially relevant evidence in litigation, investigations, audits, and so on. With this release, eDiscovery Manager and eDiscovery Analyzer now enable inclusion of archived IBM Connections content into the end-to-end e-discovery process. This helps users to further control their legal risk.

A new option is provided for exporting case evidence, such as to share with outside counsel, or with opposing counsel and the court. With this release, IBM eDiscovery Manager V2.2.1 can now export Microsoft Exchange emails in PST format as well as the previously available MSG format.

While EDRM XML, also supported, provides a standard way for exchanging e-discovery data among various vendors' tools, some use PST format for importing. This new capability provides more options for interoperating with outside and opposing counsel.

As the volume of potentially discoverable data continues to grow exponentially, IBM eDiscovery Manager V2.2.1 provides legal and IT functions with added tools to quickly identify and locate archived documents that may have characteristics that prevent them from being fully indexed and therefore, available for search. This may, for example, be due to document encryption or corruption.

In this release, targeted search features make finding these documents quick and easy so corrective action can be taken. This feature can be leveraged by the scheduled search feature to implement a predictable ongoing process of monitoring for such problem documents.

To keep pace with evolving customer environments, this release includes several additional deployment options. IBM eDiscovery Manager V2.2.1 now supports WebSphere Application Server V8.0. Both solutions can now be deployed to run as 64-bit applications, include new support for AIX V7.1, and now support the most popular versions of Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers in use.

Charge metrics definitions

User Value Units

UVU is the metric by which this program is licensed. UVU entitlements are based on the number of users for the given program. A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for the appropriate number of UVUs required for your environment as defined by the specific program terms. The UVU entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with UVU entitlements of another software program. UVU licensing offers price benefits for customers by enabling a lower cost of incremental growth of resources. To understand these benefits of UVU licensing, and to determine how many UVUs to obtain for the program, contact your IBM representative.

A Value Unit is a pricing charge metric for program license entitlements which is based upon the quantity of a specific designated measurement used for a given program. Each program has a designated measurement. The most commonly used designated measurement is a processor core. However, for select programs, there are other designated measurements such as users or resources which may include servers, client devices, and messages. The number of value unit entitlements required for a program depends on how the program is deployed in your environment and must be obtained from a value unit table. You must obtain a PoE for the calculated number of value unit entitlements for your implementation. The value unit entitlements are specific to a program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Unit entitlements of another program.

At all times, the number of users accessing the program or any component of the program in any manner, directly or indirectly (for instance, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) or through any other means must not exceed your entitlement to use the program, as indicated on the applicable PoEs.

Authorized (AUVU): For selectively licensing internal users within your organization. The number of AUVUs you require is based on the number of authorized users within your organization that may access the program and/or whose user content may be analyzed using the program in any manner at set forth in the AUVU license conversion table.

External (XUVU): For licensing users who are external to your organization whose user content is analyzed using the program. The number of XUVUs you require is based on the number of external users whose user content may be analyzed using the program in any manner as set forth in the XUVU license conversion table.

Employee (EUVU): For collectively licensing all of your internal users. The number of EUVUs you require will be based on the number of employees in your enterprise as set forth in the EUVU license conversion table.

Enterprise: An enterprise includes any legal entity that, by more than 50%, owns, is owned by, or is under common ownership with the licensee. The licensee is the legal entity that is authorized to execute and administer this agreement on behalf of an enterprise. The licensee need not be a 'company' and may be the entire enterprise.
