True cloud is the sensible approach for legal departments to quickly and easily reduce data volumes and get instant access and insights about discovery data—giving them the power to truly “know now” about the merits of a case. True cloud also represents a radical new democratization of e-discovery: Legal professionals, regardless of their technical skill, can now leverage the full power of the cloud, bringing speed, flexibility, affordability and sustainability to the business challenge of managing exponentially growing volumes of variable and disparate data.

In the face of such enquiries or lawsuits, identifying and presenting key communications is a critical issue. And as the LIBOR scandal shows, instant messaging (IM) conversations are now a substantial component of that need.
