7 © 2007 IBM Corporation Recovered Emails Bedevil Qualcomm in Court By DON CLARK - Wall Street Journal October 9, 2007; Page B1  Chip maker Qualcomm Inc. has long battled rivals in court. Near the end of one trial in January, Viji Raveendran, a senior company engineer, made a surprise disclosure: a search by her lawyers had turned up emails about a key issue that hadn't been shared with defendant Broadcom Corp.  "This is every trial lawyer's nightmare," says Francis H. Morrison III, a lawyer for Axinn Veltrop & Harkrider LLP who isn't involved in the case.  Others are having bad dreams, too. Failures in finding, saving and sharing emails are bedeviling large and small litigants, undermining their credibility with judges and affecting the outcome of high-stakes trials. New federal rules have reinforced companies' obligations to produce electronic evidence, which has exploded in volume as emails replace phone calls and other business communications.

8 © 2007 IBM Corporation E-mail Systems Have Simply Become Overloaded  Overloaded e-mail systems cause: –System down time –Bloated inboxes –IT imposed mailbox size limits –Private archives (.pst/.nsf files) –Lost data due to.pst/.nsf corruption –Increased storage costs –Increased backup and restore times –Time consuming server upgrades and consolidation –Overwhelming challenge managing e-mail backup tapes E-mail systems were not designed to store vast amounts of email and attachments for long durations. Companies are challenged to manage and store increasing amounts of e-mail. Implementing mailbox size limits is not the answer – employees keep local copies that may be discoverable, creating a compliance and legal nightmare. Backup/restore times take longer. Compliance requires e-mail to be retained more stringently for long periods of time – adding to the e-mail storage problem. Attachments Mail body

9 © 2007 IBM Corporation Companies are Struggling with Regulations and Lawsuits  Mounting Regulatory Pressure –Complexities of assimilating and managing regulations –High penalties and brand damage associated with not meeting regulatory compliance  Increasing Risk and Cost of Litigation –Inability to rapidly and cost effectively retrieve subpoenaed emails (~72 hours) –Most electronic messages are either deleted or are stored on tape that is not indexed and not easily accessible  Companies must ensure email authenticity Morgan Stanley paid a $15 million fine to settle a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) probe into its failure to preserve e-mail. On average, large companies have 86 non-frivolous lawsuits ongoing. Nearly 3 out of every 4 enterprises were required to search backup tapes for old e-mail in the past three years. Five U.S. Banks were fined $1.25 million for being unable to retrieve subpoenaed e-mail – which were stored on backup tapes. A single legal discovery for e-mail can cost between $150,000 and $250,000. One lawsuit could ruin a small business.

11 © 2007 IBM Corporation Why Don’t We Hear More About “Success Stories”?  Corporate reluctance to draw attention to themselves –They are “cautious” to “be public”  Evolutionary process still in progress –They “have not yet arrived”  A first or early phase deployment –Desire to wait until their deployment is more mature
