ZL Technologies Inc. Key Developments

ZL Technologies, Inc. Introduces New eDiscovery Capabilities for Superior Efficiency

ZL Technologies Inc. has announced new eDiscovery features in the 8.0.3 version release of the company's archiving and governance platform, ZL Unified Archive®. Driven by enterprise customer feedback, the new product developments empower inhouse counsel to further leverage the ZL UA environment to fit existing workflow and preferences, increasing overall efficiency and improving case outcomes. ZL UA offers a approach to eDiscovery, providing true endtoend functionality by building downstream discovery features directly within the framework of a singleplatform information governance environment, allowing data to be fluidly accessed for multiple Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) steps without data export or movement. This stands in contrast to traditional eDiscovery tools, which are typically designed to handle a few individual steps of the EDRM. ZL UA's foundation of holistic data governance ensures that enterprisewide content can be rapidly searched and accurately culled in the stages of litigation, streamlining subsequent steps while slashing time and costs. New eDiscovery features in ZL UA 8.0.3 include: Independent Legal Holds and Case Items: ZL UA now allows preservations to be conducted and items/persons of interest to be preemptively placed on hold with one click -- before early case assessment (ECA) even begins, and without the need to process onhold items for review. This allows legal teams to fluidly preserve data in the earliest stages of anticipated litigation, without having to determine all of the specifics of a case. Once further case parameters are determined, the proper subset of the preserved data can then be saved for subsequent review and analysis. Parallel Indexing Architecture for Multiple Cases: ZL UA's flexible underlying NoSQL processing and embedded text indexing are applied to existing case items, enabling document content to be extracted only once regardless of how many cases that document is part of. With multiple extractions unnecessary, the enterprise may conduct dozens or more cases at once without duplicative processing of content for advanced analysis. Batch Processing for Ongoing Custodian Preservation: ZL UA allows legal hold to be applied at a custodianbased level, preserving not only existing documents, but also any new documents created after the legal hold has been applied. New batch processing of ongoing preservation is faster and more seamless, eliminating any potential bottlenecks during ingestion of newlycreated content. ZL UA's new eDiscovery features enable rapid, accurate, and responsive preservation and ECA, establishing a discovery environment in which inhouse legal professionals may leverage a rich feature set to best fit existing practices and desired workflows. Although ZL UA is ideal for full endtoend eDiscovery, it also provides immense flexibility, allowing downstream export of content for processing in specialty tools if desired.

ZL Technologies Inc. Announces Availability of Two New Products ZL Email Analytics and ZL Content Insight

ZL Technologies Inc. announced the availability of two new products, ZL Email Analytics and ZL Content Insight. The two new products within the ZL Enterprise Analytics (ZL EA) environment leverage human-generated big data, deriving value from existing content. Simultaneously addressing information governance needs and demand for best-of-breed analytics, the new products enable organizations to unlock the true potential of a major data category — People Data — to enhance business decision-making and performance. Despite the increased reliance on analytics as a critical business driver, the majority of current analytics products function largely as stand-alone data “silos.” ZL, on the contrary, provides effective information governance by building unstructured analytics capabilities directly within a singular data management architecture. Less than six months after its launch, ZL EA is already receiving recognition as a KMWorld Trend-Setting Product of 2015 for rich, immediate 360° insight it provides enterprises. A unified and robust analytics platform is critical to organizations of all sizes in order to maximize the business value of content that already must be managed for other needs. ZL Technologies’ Enterprise Analytics platform and two newly launched products, Email Analytics and Content Insight, provide enterprises with the right tools to take a proactive approach to their analytics and be well-attuned to the patterns and anomalies that emerge in human-generated data. By governing data in the same environment in which it is analyzed, raw data is always seamless to access and manipulate. ZL Email Analytics and ZL Content Insight, build on this foundation with the following key capabilities focused on harnessing vital People Data, which includes emails, files, calendar entries, file shares, MS SharePoint, mobile messaging, enterprise IM, social media and much more: ZL Email Analytics- allows CEOs, CIOs, CTOs, and other decision-makers to detect important patterns and form valuable connections between people and teams within the organization. It derives business intelligence from any and all information pertaining to email traffic including message subject, recipients, attachments, and text content. ZL’s powerful technology stands apart from competitors who can only provide header analysis, with the ability to analyze both the body of email and header information. ZL Content Insight makes knowledge management easy: empowering enterprises to identify effective ways to disseminate relevant information across the organization and find key subject matter experts. It analyzes all files written by and exchanged between employees within a company to elucidate key contributors, critical workflows and unmanaged “dark data” systems such as sprawling file shares. From a data security standpoint, Content Insight helps safeguard sensitive information, such as PII, PCI, PHI, etc., while pinpointing unusual activities like inappropriate access and abnormal data growth. With a long-term, comprehensive approach to information governance that enables analysis across all People Data within an organization, the ZL platform and its two new core products offer countless powerful use cases that can be explored, including: HR Analytics: To-date, most HR analytics tools have focused on structured information such as payroll data. ZL EA goes beyond existing HR industry capabilities by leveraging both unstructured data and HR system data for deeper insights. By utilizing existing corporate communications to give leadership unique insights into diverse data types and better access to intelligence, HR analytics can help build a happier, more productive workplace. Domain Expertise: One of the biggest challenges large businesses face is understanding and mobilizing individual team members’ expertise, and avoiding unnecessary overlap in efforts. By mining unstructured work data such as documents and business email to get a better understanding of individual skills and connections, ZL EA helps companies build stronger teams and leverage all employees’ unique skills and expertise. Social Network Analysis: An employee’s personal connections within the organization can be just as valuable as their knowledge and skills. ZL EA has the ability to run Social Network Analysis (SNA) algorithms to answer “who knows who” and “who knows what” within the business sphere. By analyzing corporate email communications, ZL EA uncovers entities and relationships that don’t always make it into centralized contact databases.

ZL Technologies Inc. has announced the formal availability of version 8.0.1 of its product, ZL Unified Archive® (ZL UA). The single-platform approach provides the large enterprise a comprehensive system for all archiving, eDiscovery, compliance and supervision, records management, and storage requirements while building an unparalleled foundation of governed data for leverage in analytics. Effective data management is a pre-requisite to meaningful data analysis. ZL UA's approach to consolidating data resources into an aggregated pool of single data copies provides a revolutionary foundation for application of unstructured analytics within the living business environment. While competing solutions create or attempt to integrate disparate silos of data, ZL UA takes a unified approach by eliminating siloed architecture and ensuring that only one data copy is stored, retention policies are coordinated, and one consistent search is performed. The newest release of ZL UA incorporates several key advancements: including many in direct response to the needs of existing Fortune 500 customers, and many designed to optimize the future strategic leverage of unstructured business content via analytics. bold feature enhancements: boldZL ZooKeeper Service: New distributed coordination and configuration management service helps massive deployments manage and process Big Data with unmatched security and ease.
