Law and government organizations form an integral part of every judicial system throughout the world and they are burdened with the task of handling a myriad of complicated cases every day. Consequently, law agencies are required to discover and evaluate heaps of documents regularly to provide more visibility for case investigations and evidence collection. In such a scenario, major law agencies need to constantly maintain records by rapidly storing and managing relevant content.
