SHMsoft, Inc. Adds Review Capabilities to its Open Source eDiscovery Software FreeEed

September 25, 2013, Houston – SHMsoft, a leader in open source software for eDiscovery, is pleased to announce the latest additions to its FreeEed family of eDiscovery applications. The software is capable of indexing terabytes of documents for subsequent legal review, at speeds of over 100 GB/hour, and at costs of under $1/GB, on Amazon EC2 cloud, on a local workstation or on a cluster made out of spare capacity of the office PCs. Thus, one can safely claim that ”My data never leaves my office.” The newest capabilities include OCR, internationalization and browser-based first-look review. Simplified documentation is now part of the source code on GitHub.

Houston Hadoop Meetup: Hybrid Big Data Solutions, presented by Victor Cintron

Even though both organizers were out of town, but this was not not an issue: Victor Cintron (of Wisemen Consulting) took control, provided pizza and projector and started at 6 PM. That was good, because the hadoopers had to adjourn at 7 sharp since the other group was waiting.

Everyone in attendance (about 15) was very nice and introduced themselves to everyone else. Next month presenters (from PROS) were in attendance also. We will verify the START (our venue) schedule, and make sure that at least on organizer or his appointee is there.

Here is a link to Victor's slides: Hybrid Big Data Solutions.
