Since implementing CA Information Governance software, we've seen customers reduce the time for discovery requests from weeks to a matter of hours. Their legal teams can conduct efficient searches directly, saving literally millions of dollars in IT expenditures and legal discovery costs

CA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CA) today announced the next evolution of its Information Governance Suite, including a Discovery and Retention Manager module. The module helps organizations to proactively retain and dispose of the right information to reduce volume, optimize discovery for greatest efficiency and relevance, and limit outside legal review costs by producing only highly relevant information. CA's Information Governance Suite provides a unified interface for discovery and retention management through the new Discovery and Retention Manager module. Common to both CA Records Manager r12.5 and CA Message Manager r12.5, the module enables federation to other content repositories directly from CA Message Manager, providing discovery and retention management of content across the enterprise. CA Records Manager, the first records management product to receive US DoD 5015.2 v3 certification, is now also the first to receive paired certifications under that standard. CA Records Manager is now certified with Microsoft® SharePoint® as well as several other popular content management systems. The U.S. DoD 5015.2 v3 standard is used worldwide as the de-facto standard for comprehensive records management by both private and public organizations. The CA Information Governance Suite is designed to help customers to proactively and consistently manage vital digital and physical records across repositories, with policy-driven controls that help mitigate risk and facilitate litigation preparedness. CA's Information Governance Suite includes the following new features: Unified discovery and retention management for CA Message Manager- and CA Records Manager-managed content. Discovery against and retention management for content beyond CA systems, including content in Windows®-based file systems and other repositories. Ability to create policies that create repeatable processes, provide for more consistent preservation and facilitate ease of export across the organization. Proactive and automated management of file share content based on rules. The CA Information Governance suite, including CA Records Manager r12.5, CA Message Manager r12.5 and the new Discovery and Retention Manager module is currently in beta and will be available Winter 2008. This release is one of 10 new and enhanced Enterprise IT Management (EITM) and Governance solutions CA has announced today to help organizations address IT management issues intensified by today's challenging economy by better adapting to change, capitalizing on new opportunities and controlling costs.
