Catalyst CEO John Tredennick to Present at MarkLogic's 2012 "Big Data" Summit in New York

DENVER, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 -- John Tredennick, founder and CEO of Catalyst Repository Systems, Inc., a pioneer in providing cloud-based document repositories for e-discovery, will present a session, "Reducing Risk -- Why Big Data Applies to e-Discovery, Investigations and Compliance Requests," at MarkLogic's 2012 Summit, "The Power of Big Data," in New York. The session is Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012, 2:20 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST, at Sentry Centers Midtown East.

The one-day summit features risk experts, thought leaders, organizational transformers and business innovators who will discuss their experiences addressing the challenges of big data. Speakers and attendees represent a variety of industries, including media, financial services, telecommunications and healthcare, and organizations like The McGraw-Hill Companies, JPMorgan Chase & Company, Citi, Infrastructure Corporation of America and the BBC.

"Managing big data significantly increases the cost of responding to discovery requests for litigation, arbitration and regulatory investigations," said Tredennick. "With legal review costs running to the billions of dollars, corporations are increasingly turning to sophisticated search techniques to pare down the document population subject to human review. In this session, corporate leaders will learn how they can power big data legal cases through the heart of the litigation lifecycle in a cost-effective manner."

In a co-presentation with Frank Rubino, director of customer solutions at MarkLogic, Tredennick will discuss how some of the world's largest corporations are using Catalyst Insight, the only ediscovery platform based on MarkLogic XML technology, to manage digital assets with less risk and cost-effectively navigate hundreds of terabytes of data in litigation, investigations and compliance requests.

Among topics the session will cover:

  • How to leverage the flexibility and scalability of XML, which can handle the largest matters involving vast amounts of unstructured data
  • How predictive coding provides better results, reduces risk and significantly lowers costs in high-volume matters
  • How to achieve unprecedented flexibility in search -- across all or any combination of fields and text -- using ranges, stems and proximity; and searching across folders and secure document collections without compromising the security of private fields and collections
  • How advanced predictive coding is revolutionizing multi-language review in large matters, including litigation involving Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Hebrew, Arabic and Western European languages

CloudEXPO Stories
Containers, microservices and DevOps are all the rage lately. You can read about how great they are and how they’ll change your life and the industry everywhere. So naturally when we started a new company and were deciding how to architect our app, we went with microservices, containers and DevOps. About now you’re expecting a story of how everything went so smoothly, we’re now pushing out code ten times a day, but the reality is quite different.
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully been able to harness the excess capacity of privately owned vehicles and turned into a meaningful business. This concept can be step-functioned to harnessing the spare compute capacity of smartphones that can be orchestrated by MEC to provide cloud service at the edge.
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addressed the challenges of scaling document repositories to this level; architectural approaches for coordinating data; search and storage technologies, Solr, and Amazon storage and database technologies; the breadth of use cases that modern content systems need to support; how to support user applications that require subsecond response times.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, will discuss how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
