Sherpa’s Top 10 Must Reads!

As 2016 kicks off, you’ve most likely heard “new year, new you” more times than you can count. New resolutions, new goals, new perspective, new, new, new.  We too look at the New Year with a view toward developing great new content.  But while starting off the year with new and exciting content is expected, we can’t help but reflect back on the great content that was created in the past but is just as relevant today. Sherpa is always striving to keep you up-to-date with the latest indu

Mon, Jan 11th 2016 9:08a   Jeff Tujetsch
In today’s litigious world of business, one of the most important relationships is between IT and Legal. These two departments must be in sync for any eDiscovery and/or policy management process to be successful. Both are necessary players and the business will not properly function without these two departments realizing they must work together, in order to succeed. This article will provide some insight into how you can strengthen the relationship and collaboration between IT and Legal i

A Rose by Any Other Name:  It’s All Information Governance
Fri, Jan 8th 2016 4:31p   Marta Farensbach
Many articles focused around information governance (IG) discuss the framework in terms of data collections, legal holds, and other eDiscovery related tasks. By limiting IG to a specific eDiscovery focus however, these commentaries lose the full strategic scope of what information governance really entails. In actuality, every IT process that touches electronically stored information (ESI) falls under the domain of a comprehensive information governance program.  Diverse fields such as security

Reducing eDiscovery Costs
Fri, Jan 8th 2016 4:16p   Harvey Coblin
There’s no doubt that litigation is expensive. When the added expense of producing and reviewing electronically stored information (ESI) is added, the costs can become mind boggling. Case in point – In the highly publicized Apple Inc. v. Samsung Electronics Co. series of lawsuits over smartphone patent infringements, Samsung was required to produce 11.1 million documents. Of these, 880,000 were eventually delivered to Apple. The total cost paid to eDiscovery vendor UBIC, according to Sa

New Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) amendments to Rule 37
Thu, Jan 7th 2016 10:47a   Kristin Mager
Noteworthy changes have been made to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) affecting the legal discovery of electronically stored information (ESI) as of December 1, 2015.  These amendments were in response to the growing volume of ESI targeted in the large number of civil litigations.  Revisions to these rules have not taken place since 2006. In the interim, issues arising from the cost of processing, reviewing and producing ESI plus the confusion in contradicting court opinions require

Data Profiling 101
Mon, Dec 28th 2015 9:46a   Kristin Mager
By definition, data profiling measures the data one has available in an existing source and determines the accuracy, completeness, and other statistics and information relating to one’s data.  The importance of measuring this is to learn if existing data can be easily used, to provide metrics on the quality, and to assess the risk involved in integrating the data.  With data profiling, one can understand the challenges early within a project and avoid delays and increasing costs.  Data prof

Understanding Litigation Holds
Mon, Dec 21st 2015 5:00p   Rick Wilson
If you are new to the topic, the term litigation hold refers to an organization’s responsibility to preserve potentially relevant information when they are party to a dispute, already named in a litigation or have the reasonable expectation of being involved in litigation. Several years ago amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) expanded the scope of what constitutes relevant information to include electronically stored information (ESI) such as email, documents, etc. To hel
