Microsoft has announced that the company has acquired Equivio, a text analytics service for legal and compliance that identifies documents relevant to their legal and compliance needs through machine-learning techniques.

According to TechCrunch, Microsoft will use Equivio's eDiscover and information governance tools to develop Office 365's offerings in these areas.

Microsoft's corporate vice president for Outlook and Office 365 Rajesh Jha said that the company wants to help its customers to deal properly with the legal and compliance issues that are inherent in managing large quantities of email and documents.

Jha said that the growth of data outpaces people's ability to manually process search for relevant documents and traditional techniques are falling behind.
