“Being invited into HTC’s program will be an invaluable asset to our company and greatly accelerate our product development cycle and overall growth, says Julie Wade, Vice President of Business Development at SHMsoft. “We’ve worked diligently to create an innovative, disruptive technology for the legal field. With HTC’s help, we will quickly deploy SHMcloud™, the company’s flagship e-Discovery platform that will transform the e-Discovery workflow process by providing producing parties the tools they need to efficiently and cost-effectively review data needed for litigation.”
SHMsoft is the first company to provide an open source e-discovery technology solution based on the popular Hadoop framework being adopted by many of the top Fortune 100 companies. e-Discovery provides an excellent business use case for Hadoop, which combines parallel processing of text and other unstructured file types with advanced “machine learning” analytics – technology that is greatly needed by attorneys conducting large document reviews. SHMsoft’s products and professional services deliver value to law firms, enterprises, large organizations and governmental entities who are seeking relief from the high costs and undue burdens imposed by e-discovery requirements. SHMsoft is located in Houston, Texas. For more information:
