Heureka – Rewriting the EDRM model – Part 1

Author: Nate Latessa, President

As Heureka continues to rewrite the rules of search, classification and remediation, we turn our attention to the E-Discovery EDRM Model, with which many of you are familiar. Specifically, in this first post we focus on document processing which has traditionally held its place in the middle of the chart along with review.

Although the current data processing workflow is still valid for many companies, Heureka has been systematically flipping the script on E-Discovery traditions which begs the question, “Is it time to rewrite the model?”

Data Processing

One of the biggest changes Heureka creates is the shift of file processing from a big, centralized system down to individual endpoints. By doing so, EDRM processing moves to the far left of the model. This revolutionary idea allows endpoints to become a distributed processing system. More importantly, it reduces the need for extra processing hardware, software, or staff to maintain an infrastructure and does not require a company to potentially double their privacy concerns by copying and moving sensitive data to a new location. With Heureka, all user data remains on their endpoint until the review process is required.

With processing pushed to the earliest stage, Heureka rapidly accelerates other downstream EDRM steps thus reducing the time and cost from search to review. With a shift on where processing takes place, we envision the EDRM processing action moving to the left and occurring as the earliest event in the workflow.

What are your thoughts?

Our next post will discuss Heureka’s vision for data analysis and identification and a further refinement to the EDRM model.
