Electronic Discovery

Electronic DiscoveryFrom e-mail messages and word processing documents to spreadsheets and computer files, there is an ever-growing amount of information that today’s organizations create and store. And when faced with an electronic discovery request, it can be an overwhelming task to collect, filter, process, and produce this information without the right assistance.

DC Data Corporation draws from its proven processes and leading-edge technologies to help you seamlessly navigate the electronic discovery process. This starts with ensuring that the parameters of your project are clearly defined. From there, our project managers will work with our legal and technical experts to collect the necessary information as your project necessitates—ensuring that the path to your information is as efficient as it is effective.

Data Reduction

Data ReductionGiven the amount of data organizations must manage and store, extracting only the most essential information is a critical first step in the discovery process. Because over-collection of data can drastically increase processing and review costs, DC Data Corporation’s project management team works closely with you to clarify exactly what you need before collection begins.

From identifying the active and relevant data to developing a defensible and documented filtering strategy, you’re part of the process at every turn. Using myriad parameters (de-duplication, near-duplicate identification, e-mail threading, system/application file removal (de-NIST), keywords, date ranges, file types, and custodians), we cull the total data volume to remove irrelevant data and all known system or application files. We can also use your searching criteria to pre-filter potentially privileged documents, refine searches, and re-run queries to produce the exact evidence your case requires.

Data Processing

Then, once the data has been processed, we will work with you and your team to determine the exact specifications for deliverables, which include searchable text and native files (if appropriate), as well as associated metadata and specific load files.

Just as there is rich information to be extracted from electronic data, today’s organizations also still have an extensive volume of paper documents. To effectively and properly integrate your paper and electronic discovery, DC Data Corporation offers an extensive document processing service—helping you uncover and track information on paper documents through hard copy imaging, document coding (domestic and off shore), optical character recognition, and even translation services.

Document Production

Our project managers collaborate directly with you to deliver exactly what you need—in the format you need it. We can accommodate a range of media and environment types, such as TIFF, searchable text, PDFs, native files, or even paper, if required.

We can also deliver data and documents to counsel for the preferred litigation support application, including Concordance, Summation, Ringtail, IPRO, iCONECT, Relativity, and Introspect—plus as many other platforms as needed. And all deliverables are tracked and updated through our Project Management Portal, making it even easier for you to access your information from anywhere—at any time.

Data Repository

Businesswoman and IT Support TeamOftentimes, one case or project leads to another. And as your project data accumulates over time, it’s an enormous convenience—not to mention cost and time savings—for you to be able to draw from this stored information to build your next case. DC Data Corporation’s data repository services offer the perfect solution.

With DC Data Corporation, you can efficiently re-use your information without having to reprocess it. And rather than store your information in decentralized repositories through different vendors, we have the capacity to securely house all your data in a central repository for an extended period of time. That means you can easily search and manipulate your stored data, giving you a high level of flexibility and control over time.
