Oce Business Services to Acquire CaseData Inc., E-Discovery and Litigation Support Pioneer

Transaction Advances Oce Position as a Leader in Document Process Management

NEW YORK, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Oce N.V., , a global leader in digital document management and solutions, today announced that its U.S. division Oce Business Services and CaseData, Inc., a leading provider of electronic discovery and litigation support services to U.S. law firms and corporations, have entered into a definitive agreement for Oce Business Services to acquire all activities of CaseData.

The transaction will expand the range of Oce Business Services' document process management business, and give CaseData clients access to Oce's comprehensive portfolio of products and services. CaseData is ranked in the top five E-discovery service providers on the basis of experience and capacity. Financial details of the transaction are not being disclosed.

CaseData is a privately owned company of approximately $14 million annualized revenue with nearly 200 employees. In addition to its Salt Lake City, Utah headquarters, CaseData has significant coding and quality control operations in the Philippines. CaseData's technology and world-class services have been used by many leading U.S. law firms and Fortune 500 corporations in some of today's highest profile legal cases.

Oce N.V. considers the business services market to be a key growth market. E-discovery is one of the fastest growing segments within business services, and is projected to reach $2.4 billion in U.S. revenues in 2007, with annualized growth of nearly 40%. E-discovery is the process attorneys use to obtain digitally stored evidence in response to internal, litigation or regulatory requests. E-discovery primary functions consist of data collection, processing, review, analysis and production of relevant data from electronic or paper documents, including email. With the addition of CaseData, Oce Business Services becomes a leading participant in both document process management and E-discovery markets, which together are projected to surpass $10 billion in 2007 based on estimates by analysts InfoTrends/Cap Ventures and Socha-Gelbmann.

On an annualized basis, the worldwide revenue of business services activities at Oce amount to $500 million, 13% of the company's total annual revenue. In the U.S., Oce Business Services employs 6,000 people.

"This acquisition fully supports Oce's strategic goals to increase growth, strengthen leading positions in key markets, and expand its position in document process management," said Jan Dix, President and CEO, Oce-USA Holding, Inc. and member, Board of Executive Directors. "CaseData's technology, high volume processing operations, and legal process know-how combined with Oce document domain expertise, global scale and resources will enable the combined company to deliver unprecedented value to clients by providing more complete value-added solutions that address a wider range of needs."

"Our clients increasingly view records management, compliance, E-discovery and litigation support as strategic, interdependent business processes," said Joseph R. Marciano, President and CEO of Oce Business Services. "With CaseData, we'll deliver a compelling opportunity for clients to streamline management of these key processes, improve effectiveness, and reduce cost and risk. Our combined service portfolio will enable us to serve more clients in more ways."

Oce Business Services will establish a new Records, Compliance and Legal Solutions division that combines its imaging and records management services with the CaseData suite of electronic and paper discovery, web data review and data forensics services. Law firms and corporations will benefit from an integrated, single-sourced solution that spans the entire records and discovery management lifecycle and enables them to effectively address records, compliance and document-intensive litigation requirements.

"Oce Business Services and CaseData will make a powerful combination," said Douglas M. Bean, Vice President and General Manager of the new Records, Compliance and Legal Solutions division. "In joining OBS, we become part of an industry leader, a company with a history and culture of outstanding client service, and a great future. I believe this transaction is in the best interests of our employees, clients, partners and suppliers."

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the ste...
