eDiscovery for Apache Kafka
Apache Kafka is a framework implementation of a software bus using stream-processing. It is an open-source software platform developed by the Apache Software Foundation written in Scala and Java. The project aims to provide a unified, high-throughput, low-latency platform for handling real-time data feeds. Kafka is primarily used to build real-time streaming data pipelines and applications that adapt to the data streams. It combines messaging, storage, and stream processing to allow storage and analysis of both historical and real-time data.
About Simflofy eDiscovery for Apache KafkaSimflofy eDiscovery for Kafka provides organizations the ability to perform the first three stages of the EDRM model. Organizations can identify responsive content, collect the content, and preserve the content by applying legal holds. Simflofy allows designated users with the appropriate permissions to search across Kafka for responsive content to the eDiscovery request. Content can be searched and filtered by date, metadata, content type, subject, filename and much more. The responsive content can then be collected and shared for further culling with other parties. When the content has been culled, the remaining content can be preserved by applying a legal hold.
