Cracks in Relativity’s Market Dominance?

Reveal-Brainspace continues to make traction with eDiscovery service providers. Onboarding 25 new partners in a single quarter speaks volumes and requires a mature partnership engine. UnitedLex was a Relativity Best in Service partner as recently as 2016. In fact, they are still a Relativity Certified Partner. With large discovery matters lasting 2-4 years, most clients prefer to let them age off a platform rather [...]

Reveal 10.1 – Maturity & Performance Features

In our Agile sprint driven cloud platform world major release versions usually deliver brand new workflows, UI changes or architecture updates. The Reveal 10.1 release notes detail a lot of relatively small changes aimed at improving usability and review performance. As a former product manager, I would have called this Reveal 9.3, but point releases tend to get lost in the marketing noise. While [...]

New Partnership Expands BONG Report Coverage, Audience and Resources

Just a quick congratulations to my friends Jonathan Maas and Rob Robinson for the new partnership with Project Counsel Media. There is a lot of noise and marketing fluff filling your inbox and social media feeds these days. My goal with eDJ News Briefs was to add perspective to high value items, very similar to what Jonathan has been doing with his BONG report. [...]

Still Using Concordance? CloudNine has a Free Update for You!

Three years ago CloudNine bought Concordance, LAW and EDA from LexisNexis, essentially rescuing those products from fading into obscurity. I had a great interview with Brad Jenkins in which he laid out his plans to revitalize these traditional desktop eDiscovery apps and integrate them into the CloudNine Review™ platform. It is nice to see Concordance get a real feature release after years of neglect. [...]

Time to Review Covid Prevention Program – Again

In the prior administration, I highlighted the challenge of constantly changing OSHA/state/CDC website guidelines. We now have the advantage of hindsight, extended scientific research and hopefully guidance based on science rather than politics. The Gibbons alert includes a good summary checklist of prevention program elements. My recommendation is to review your existing prevention program against the minor changes and verify that you did indeed [...]

Discovery Starts with Investigations

The focus of the Ms. Grierson’s law alert is how and why the defendant was forced to produce their legal hold notice communications as part of the spoliation determination. What I found more interesting in the source Radiation Oncology Servs. of Cent. N.Y., P.C. v. Our Lady of Lourdes Mem’l Hosp., Inc. decision is how the ‘Chair of the Investigative Committee’ conducted his investigation [...]

Good Quotes from GC’s on Evolving Corporate Legal

I miss conducting interviews and building statistics to quantify aspects of the eDiscovery Market. At least Ari Kaplan has done a good job conducting 31 interviews with Fortune 1000 GC’s for us. Most of his results and good quotes resonate with what I have heard from clients/peers over the last year. Corporate legal taking more in house with less resources. Investing in technology, but [...]

Relativity Acquires Partner Innovations, Again

Relativity has long had a strategy of partner driven innovation wherein they acquire successful integrated products that are converted to module or features. Just look at Relativity Legal Hold, Collect, etc. for prior examples. I call your attention to how their announcement broadens Relativity’s corporate value proposition from simple eDiscovery to include compliance, data requests, investigations and other information governance usage scenarios. This signals [...]

The Real Reason Windows Can’t Find Bruce’s OneDrive Files

I found this article last August when I encountered the M365 eDiscovery search error  I recently announced. It is out of date on a couple points, but it has been sitting in my News list because Bruce does a very good job of putting Microsoft Search evolution in context. It is unlikely that the eDiscovery service issue I found contributed to Bruce’s erratic search [...]

Teams Allows Guests by Default – Hackers Cheer

Because MSFT Admin notices are not posted in a public facing site, I am attaching a PDF of the notice below. Cyber threats and indirect hacking attempts have blossomed in the pandemic remote working age. I brought this change up to cyber security guru John Wilson (HaystackID) on a webinar prep call today. He commented that this could be the equivalent of ‘rolling out [...]
