Ediscovery news: Predictive Search analytics available with PowerSearch Software 5.0 Release

PowerSearch Software hasannounced the release of PowerSearch 5.0. This release includes predictive search analytics, file exclusion and advanced tagging functionality.

Predictive search analytics give the user the ability to analyze a word and view how it is used in the context of the documents in the collection. It also provides a count of document hits and term frequency for the current word and synonyms or related words (and frequency counts of those terms) of the selected word. The ability to see similar words allows the user to modify their existing search criteria resulting in a more accurate document set. By being able to see the word in the context of the documents, further analysis of words near the current word can be performed as well. PowerSearch uses Princeton University’s WordNet lexical database project to suggest words by “conceptual-semantic and lexical relations.”

“We are very excited about the launch of PowerSearch 5.0,” said Girts Jansons, founder & CEO of PowerSearch. “Our goal with PowerSearch has always been to bring a cost-effective and efficient discovery product to the market. This latest version is the debut of our predictive search analytics that really puts the power in PowerSearch, changing the face of searching, identification and culling of electronic files.”

In addition, PowerSearch 5.0 brings file exclusion functionality to give users the ability to exclude files by file extension, size and NIST list (hash value) to facilitate easier and faster review of relevant documents. Adding the ability to exclude files by the NSRL NIST data sets can remove known, traceable software applications from the current collection reducing processing, index and review time for users. Adding advanced file tagging capabilities allows the user to launch files, review them and then tag them individually for relevance.

PowerSearch uses proprietary technology to locate and search files on local drives, network repositories, Twitter feeds as well as email servers. PowerSearch extracts email repositories (including Exchange) and zipped files, indexing the content of emails and electronic documents making them fully searchable. Search results can be saved and, if necessary, exported into other tools for further review. And, there is no charge for deploying the software or for searching or culling.
