Epiq Systems announce global partnership with Contoural to deliver information governance solutions

Information governance is a label which covers a wide range of functions. The overarching concern is the mitigation of risk and cost whilst uncovering value in the ever-growing volumes of data kept by corporations.

Those with eDiscovery technology skills are better placed than most to apply their knowledge and their technology to information governance. There is more to it, of course, than merely pointing technology at the problem. The management of data requires people who are skilled in the search, categorisation and all the other components of data management with experience of developing processes and workflows and of adapting these to the needs of companies and organisations.

Sometimes, this is best achieved by bringing together the attributes of companies with different skills to deal with different parts of the problem. The most recent example of this is a global partnership between Epiq Systems and Contoural.

Epiq Systems is known worldwide for delivering integrated technology solutions for lawyers. Contoural is an independent provider of information governance consulting services. The partnership aims to bring these things together to offer an integrated solution.

The Epiq press release here sets out a range of issues which can be addressed by this partnership together with other information about the new partnership.
