A short percentage-based assessment of the qualitative benefit of the recent media release by the Nordic Institute for Interoperability Solutions on beta version release of X-Road 7.

Editor’s Note: X-Road® is open-source software and ecosystem solution that provides unified and secure data exchange between organizations. X-Road is released under the MIT open source license and is available free of charge. Specifically, X-Road implements a set of standard features to support and facilitate data exchange and ensures confidentiality, integrity, and interoperability between data exchange parties. The basic idea of X-Road is that information systems do not exchange data directly with each other. Instead, information systems are connected through additional, standardized access points (Security Server) that implement the same technical specifications and therefore, can communicate with each other. The capability enabled by X-Road may be interesting to legal, business, and information technology professionals in the eDiscovery ecosystem as they consider data exchange interoperability and security.

Media Release

The first beta version of X-Road® 7 “Unicorn” has been released. The beta version of the Security Server software provides a sneak peek to the X-Road 7 look and feel.

The beta is a visually enhanced version that provides the same features as the latest X-Road 6.25.0 release. Beta versions with new features will be released in 2021 before the first production release.

X-Road is being developed iteratively using agile software development methods. All the changes in X-Road 7 will not be included in the first production version but in various minor versions over time.

X-Road is open-source software and ecosystem solution that provides unified and secure data exchange between organizations. X-Road is a digital public good verified by the Digital Public Goods Alliance, and it’s released under the MIT open source license and is available free of charge.

A (Brand) New Approach? Considering the Framework and Structure of eDiscovery Offerings

Today’s eDiscovery providers may benefit from the lessons learned in the creation of the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album by creating a concept for branding and packaging their offerings within that brand in a connected, theme-based way that represents the offerings’ promise and capability in a way that is easy to understand and remember.

This fictionalized branding approach was developed from the intellectual exercise of trying to figure out a reasonable and memorable way to descriptively highlight the promise and capabilities of offerings typically delivered by full-service eDiscovery providers. It may not be completely comprehensive or fully normalized. However, the hope of sharing this branding example is that it might help those involved in the branding and communication of eDiscovery provider services and solutions.
