What makes it Innovative? StoredIQ Analyze Anywhere enables counsel to perform an "early case assessment" (ECA) on documents natively where they reside without first copying any them to a repository. This is a significant distinction from traditional/alternative ECA solutions because it enables legal counsel to deeply analyze the potentially responsive data prior to preservation and collection. As a result in-house counsel can formulate a superior legal strategy sooner and more efficiently while reducing the costs of downstream formal legal review. In addition Analyze Anywhere technology is driven by a legal-friendly user interface and workflow to simplify the entire eDiscovery process. This intuitive interface helps attorneys quickly analyze and cull large amounts of ESI to the most relevant smallest legally-defensible subset of data and provides a "scoreboard" that displays important cost estimate information for the entire matter.In parallel StoredIQ's innovative "Just-in-Time" Desktop Agent offers a significant advancement over any current approach in the industry for discovery and management of data on desktops and laptops.
