eDJ Brief: Casepoint

Casepoint entered the cloud eDiscovery platform market in 2008. I had always classified it as a firm focused large matter boutique hosting platform based on their good reputation and minimal marketing presence. David Carns and Athena Strasel updated me on Casepoint’s changing role and architecture in before and after the Pandemic pause.  Casepoint’s successful bid to replace Recommind as the SEC’s primary eDiscovery platform [...]

eDJ Brief: FTI Technology and Jerry Bui

I enjoy meeting eDiscovery peers, especially those whose social media content bring me new perspectives and pro tips. Jerry Bui’s videos and articles attracted my attention and ILTA was a good excuse to catch up on FTI Technology. 7 degrees of eDiscovery It is always fun to share eDiscovery journeys and find common employers, friends and experiences.

Citizen Developers – eDiscovery Nightmare?

Understanding Microsoft’s vision and roadmap has been one of my greatest challenges at KnowNow. The key has been #Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella’s pivot to the cloud and Microsoft 365 as infrastructure. Nadella laid out his vision of ‘Citizen Developers’ using Low Code/No Code (LCNC) tools to create business applications in his 2017 book, Hit Refresh. eDiscovery tools and practitioners are already struggling to keep [...]

Detecting the Departing

The article gives some excellent caselaw consequences that should nudge corporate legal to reassess their employee departure policies and remedies available when data walks out the door. As I mentioned in my recent blog covering M365 Records Management, #Microsoft is adding a ‘Leavers’ classifier to public preview for premium E5 license customers.

Secret Service Self Preservation?

Legal hold notification and custodial manual preservation of potential evidence was standard practice before complex digital systems became the primary sources. Many companies still rely on ‘do not delete’ hold instructions for mobile devices and cloud systems lacking central search, hold and collection capabilities. This approach may be appropriate in low-risk civil matters without any known bad actors or possible criminal elements. I cannot [...]

Lessons from the Secret Service Text Loss

Software and hardware migrations happen. They should not result in the loss of information potentially relevant to known or reasonably anticipated legal matters. The Secret Service says that they ‘lost’ text data from January 5-6, 2021 in a long planned “system migration”. While it now appears that some or all of the lost texts may be recovered and produced, the failure of preservation process [...]

Why Not Just Use Microsoft?

Microsoft’s transformation from on-premise enterprise to global cloud omni-platform has CXO’s asking “Why not just use Microsoft?” As a former product manager (mid-2000’s) for enterprise #Infogov and #ediscovery products that delivered mature features and clear ROI it was easy to answer that question. Now that Microsoft’s portfolio seems to check every RFP feature box it is a much tougher question. The pandemic forced corporations [...]

Barrera – Time to Update Corporate Travel Policies

The Inspector General’s seizure of John Eastman’s phone should be a wakeup call for corporate legal and security stakeholders. US v. Barrera ruling in 2019 opened the door for law enforcement to use biometrics (face or fingerprints) to unlock a seized personal device. Every domestic or foreign customs agent just added this trick to their interview protocol. Think about that. Putting aside politics, I [...]

Retaining Teams Meetings – Worth the Risk?

My Inbox blew up with Teams/Zoom meeting policy questions during the 2020 Pandemic exodus. Clients old and new wanted to enable remote business continuity while managing the potential risk they perceived in meeting recordings and transcripts. Frankly, most of my global corporate clients blocked recordings and are just now re-evaluating that decision as employees struggle with meeting overload. #Microsoft moved quickly to shift the [...]

Everlaw AI Clustering – New World or New Take?

Everlaw’s announcement of a ‘New World of #ediscovery’ peaked my interest. Frankly, I have not been inspired by any concept analytics since @SkipWalter recruited me into Attenex 15+ years ago. At first glance, the new Everlaw concept clustering bears a lot of resemblance to Attenex Patterns. Is Everlaw’s new clustering revolutionary? Not in my opinion, but that does not lessen the potential market impact. [...]
