A new business concept pertaining to legal is issues is starting to pop up. It’s called information governance, and it’s a way to collect and organize data relevant to any legal proceedings your company is involved in. Of course, this is nothing new at all, and businesses have been doing it for years. The problem is that most data is “human-friendly, computer-hostile.” Emails and voice mails, data which computers don’t really understand, pile up and up and trying to sift through them to find relevant data — which is very important and even legally required in the case of litigation — can be incredibly difficult. Autonomy Information Governance essentially allows computers to read that data from employees’ files and collate it. The software can be expanded to include BlackBerrys in its search, which is likely to become increasingly important as they and other smartphones do more and more.
