Recommind announced the next generation of its MindServer platform, featuring new eDiscovery functionality that enables enterprises to locate electronically stored information (ESI) that must be preserved for ongoing or anticipated litigation. In addition, MindServer 5.0 makes it easier for OEM partners and independent software vendors to embed MindServer enterprise search and categorization capabilities within their products and provide customers with richer capabilities for searching and managing critical information. MindServer 5.0 is able to find, within the enterprise, potentially relevant and responsive information that must be preserved as part of a litigation hold, a requirement of any legal proceeding. In many enterprise environments, the MindServer platform itself can lock down any document or other piece of information returned in a search query. Otherwise, MindServer 5.0 is able to pass the result set from any query to a separate application, such as a content management system or database, for immediate litigation hold lock-down. In addition, only MindServer 5.0 supports multi-selection filters within the user interface, a prerequisite for the highly comprehensive and detailed searches needed for effective litigation hold. The platform’s improved APIs enable knowledge and content management, email archiving, and eDiscovery system vendors to incorporate Recommind’s enterprise search functionality into their products. MindServer 5.0 also incorporates improvements to search relevancy and ease of use, delivers faster query performance, simplifies integration with Microsoft SharePoint Portal and other existing systems, and provides enhanced reporting capabilities. Recommind MindServer 5.0 is available immediately.
