At Harbinger, we take exceptional pride in our ability to provide our users with consistently high eDiscovery performance. While performance of the Harbinger eDiscovery Platform starts with processing electronically stored information as quickly as possible, the platform must also search and display documents without hesitation, followed by the agility of the reviewing process.
During the processing phase, data types are identified, deduplicated, deNISTed, and filtered. Additionally, vital metadata is extracted, non-text files are OCRed, data may be converted to a readable form, encrypted files are identified, containers are stripped apart, parent/child relationships are assigned, PDF views are created, and full-text indexes are created. Additional processing may be needed depending on the specific dataset.
Harbinger’s back-end systems are powered by tools which are rated in the Leader Quadrant of the highly-respected Gartner eDiscovery Report. In addition to utilizing state-of-the-art tools, Harbinger has implemented computing systems and infrastructures to take advantage of the latest technology in networking, processors, memory, controllers, and disks in order to maximize the performance of the processing stage.
The unrivaled performance of the Harbinger eDiscovery Platform is due to several factors. First, we eliminated the high-end graphics and simplified the interface to minimize any degradation due to information flow not related to your data. Second, we implemented the latest technology again with 100% enterprise-grade solid state drives within load balanced and fully redundant systems. In between these two factors, lies the software and databases that support your review system. We spent over two years making sure all database design and software worked together to maximize application performance.
For eDiscovery review performance, we focused on minimizing keystrokes, mouse movements, and mouse clicks. Ease of searching was a priority. With our Advanced Search builder, anyone can successfully create complex search queries. After the search is executed, a sophisticated grid view is provided with a cutting-edge filtering and sorting system.
All of our interactive charts are easily maneuvered and our reporting outputs are clear and actionable. Data patterns and trends seem to jump off the screen and into usable planning concepts. Every facet of your e-discovery project can be tracked and every action by each reviewer shared quickly with the team.
This is just the beginning. A reviewer can tag, bulk tag, download (native documents or near-native PDFs) individually or in bulk, view documents, see all metadata fields, utilize the floating and sortable tag window, comment, highlight, redact, and organize documents. Finally, collaboration between all reviewers to share searches, custom views, data exclusions, and folder organization eliminate repetitive work flows.
