FreeEed Open Source eDiscovery Tool Debuts




Mark Kezner of FreeEed
(https://github.com/markkerzner/FreeEed) released version 1 of a free open source e-discovery processing tool today. Aimed at the do-it-yourself crowd, law firms looking to bring
data processing in-house, and vendors seeking a way to process client data license-free, it provides an egalitarian alternative to the various solutions already on the market. Binary

Kezner states that "FreeEed software is intended to process any number of electronic documents, extract metadata and text, and cull them based on keywords. It produces a 'load file' containing all available metadata and an output zip file, which contains all of the text extracted from each document, as well as 'native' files."
