ZL Technologies to Sponsor eDiscovery for Government Practitioners Conference at Georgetown Law

Published by: Marketwired

Event to showcase thought leadership and continued education in eDiscovery best practices for public sector professionals

SAN JOSE, CA – Jun. 24, 2013 ZL Technologies, Inc., the technology leader in unstructured data governance and end-to-end eDiscovery management for large organizations, will be a sponsor and exhibitor at Georgetown Law’s “eDiscovery for Federal Practitioners” conference on June 26 in Washington, DC. The event, tailored specifically to legal and information management professionals in the federal sector, offers deep insights into the unique demands facing government litigators and the need for proactive management of electronically-stored information (ESI).

Explosive electronic data growth exacerbates management challenges at federal agencies which are faced with pressing issues such as FOIA compliance, DoD-5015-compliant records keeping and e-discovery requirements. To meet these challenges, ZL Technologies takes the unique approach of consolidating all data silos into a unified platform, thus resolving multiple problems simultaneously. With proven deployments in the Federal sector and the industry’s only unified data management platform to consolidate data copies and silos, ZL Technologies is uniquely positioned to solve the challenges of managing the unruly proliferation of ESI at federal agencies.

The conference also addresses the growing pressures facing federal agencies in lowering the costs of managing electronic information, especially as budgets continue to be trimmed. With increasing emphasis on IT implementation, the public sector is increasingly urged to innovate more with less, and to utilize technology as a multiplier for overall federal productivity without increasing complexity. Additional requirements, such as the adoption of cloud deployments, the duty to fulfill FOIA requests, and the need to meet Presidential Records Directive objectives, have brought technological consolidation and agility to the forefront of government agendas.

In response to these needs, the ZL Unified Archive® (ZL UA) was built from the ground up to handle the information management needs of large organizations, and provides a single-platform, non-silo environment in which data can be governed from cradle to grave in a consolidated manner, thus eliminating the expensive habit of shuttling data back and forth. Retention policies, legal holds, records classification, and all other unstructured data controls are applied to one and only one copy of data, providing unparalleled defensibility and cost reduction. This approach enables large organizations to leverage near-instantaneous global search of information, thus fulfilling requirements for eDiscovery, eFOIA, and records management. ZL UA’s full DoD-5015 certification, including for Gmail and other cloud-based data, offers agencies the assurance of being compliant with the highest standards of records management practices, as set forth by the federal government itself.
