History and Vision

The entrepreneurial vision of our founders was to develop a services company that placed a premium on technology, industry expertise, and client satisfaction. Now serving the legal industry for fifteen years, Planet Data’s goal was always to become a leading global Discovery Management firm.

During Planet Data's first few years, the firm offered file conversion, high speed printing, consulting, imaging, coding and repository services. In 2003 electronic file processing services were added. During the next several years founding partners Howard J. Reissner (CEO) and Zoltan Horvath (President) recognized that tremendous change in the Discovery Management philosophy was fast approaching.

Subsequent to the adoption of the Amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure in December, 2006 (addressing discovery of ESI), sophisticated clients quickly began looking for eDiscovery services that could provide flexible, accurate, time-saving and cost-cutting solutions.

In 2008, Planet Data answered the call, and acquired Cerulean LLC, a proprietary, fully Unicode compliant data processing engine, along with their entire world-class development team.

In addition to the Cerulean founders and development staff, Planet Data created several other senior management positions to propel the company into the next decade. Those key appointments in Project Management, Marketing and Communications, and Technology solidify Planet Data’s commitment to being the “Best in Class”.

Entering 2009, Planet Data had fully implemented the integration of the Cerulean Engine - now called Exego - which allows complete flexibility and customization while processing massive amounts of data per day.

Today, Planet Data has a strong reputation for high-quality work, with an emphasis on client service. We offer state-of-the-art data processing, and reliable, full supported hosting centers. The company also provides high-level consulting, technical support and project management. We identify and create new technologies and will continually provide new and improved services to our clients. We are particularly excited about Exego - our leading-edge SaaS pre-review platform, which enables our clients to estimate their potential costs very early in the discovery process.

Planet Data is strong and confident - with a vision, marketing message, customer service standard of excellence, and executive team.

Our primary mission has been - and will continue to be:

To remain on the cutting edge of technology enabling us to provide the best value, talent and service – while striving to earn the highest level of trust.
