I am generally bullish on what I consider to be the undersized eDiscovery market. The $44 stock price spike after the CS Disco’s IPO equates to a $2.5B market capitalization. That is a 36X MULTIPLE of CS Disco’ s reported $68.4M 2020 revenue. Red flags pop up for me considering that CS Disco lost $29.8M in 2020 and $22.8M in 2019. According to the IPO [...]
Note: This is just a quick follow up with the data aggregator's explanation of their opt-in sourcing and GDPR compliance. If you missed yesterday's installment in my ongoing curiosity research on how our personal contact information gets aggregated and sold, read it here to make sense of the reply below. My take is that once you 'opt-in' to any website with a thousand word plus [...]
NOTE: This piece is a continuation of my adventures baiting those pesky data merchants hawking our PII to marketers with the audacity to send blasts of unsolicited emails packing our Inboxes. Last December I documented my attempts to understand who exactly was offering me your personal contact information. This latest solicitation (below) offered up qualified users of Relativity, Nuix and other well known eDiscovery platforms. [...]
A.I. driven review platforms seem to be a hot trend. First Reveal Data, followed by Relativity’s acquisition of Text IQ and now Exterro releasing a new review offering based on ‘deep learning’. I always want to understand the tech and mythologies underlying solutions. Ajith Samuel and Bill Piwonka at Exterro were kind enough to walk me through Exterro’s investments in A.I. going back to their [...]
Despite the recent drop in share prices ($11.86 down to $2.47), public ASIC investigations, executive departures and now AFP raids, I still believe that last November’s bully Nuix IPO was a signal of the world market’s appetite in legal technology. It would be a shame if the two largest eDiscovery transactions to date both proved to have cooked their books. For those of you who [...]
Have your held Teams recordings or transcripts vanished after 21 days? There is an explanation, though I feel like I am stuck in an M365 eDiscovery issue rut. Really, I would like to be writing about more positive topics. This one popped up outside my usual eDiscovery testing while working with a new tech startup that heavily leverages recordings/transcripts for customer research, feature stories and [...]
I spotted my friend Tony LaMacchia's picture in my morning media feeds and made a note to circle back to read the interview by Jeff Kruse and Cash Butler. Normally I would just pull a couple good excerpts in an eDJ News commentary. I had such a hard time remembering which of many feeds I had seen Tony’s smiling face in that it took me [...]
M365 Teams collections are already challenging corporate eDiscovery and provider teams with hidden SharePoint and OneDrive sites. Today’s Major Change Update Notification (MC261534 - reproduced at end for non-admins) covers the June-July roll out of Roadmap ID 81945 that dramatically expands custodian’s ability to associate existing/other Teams sites and automatically create private channel sites. More importantly, non-admin custodians are losing the ability to manually set [...]
Teams transcripts are not currently available in M365 Content Search, eDiscovery or via the Graph API. As previously blogged about, Microsoft is busy consolidating the Microsoft 365 architecture to improve search and other functionality. There are obvious issues with working on the car while your customers are driving it, even when it is the most efficient solution. As of October 2020, the default Teams video [...]
Relativity’s acquisition of TextIQ is being well covered by eDiscovery and mainstream media. My burning question was how TextIQ’s analytics meshed with Relativity’s Content Analyst (CAAT) acquired in 2016. The Relativity team graciously took a fast call to give me their perspectives on how this will benefit Relativity customers. First – expansion of analytic breadth and usage cases CAAT’s core is based on Latent Semantic [...]
