Search Retrieval Review Dependent on How Results Presented

While I like Mr. Arnold’s highlights and commentary, I also encourage readers to review the source article, Scanning and Selecting Enterprise Search Results: Not as Easy as it Looks. I can see some interesting parallels to how we test and tune preservation/collection scope criteria. These issues with presentation of search or cluster results came up in my recent briefing with the Agnes Intelligence team. [...]

Nuix 9x IPO – Almost the A-10-X Goal

I vividly recall my first briefing with Nuix’s dynamic duo, Eddie and Morgan Sheehy. Of course, it happened at a LTNY (probably 2009, but they all blur together). That was shortly after we had converted the eDiscovery Journal from editorial press into the eDJ Group market analyst model. I was impressed with Eddie’s laser focus on breaking the $/GB consumption market and loved Morgan’s [...]

eDJBrief: Reveal

Reveal keeps making the eDiscovery news, so I did a briefing with Jay Leib and George Socha to get up to speed on their overall go to market strategy. Most eDiscovery providers fall into a couple well known buckets that force them to grow, evolve or fade away. Like most players, Reveal started as a service provider focused on hosting large litigation matters.(see Reveal [...]

eDJBrief: Agnes Intelligence

When kCura acquired Content Analyst in 2016, I was concerned that left only two analytic engines with significant market share. I should have realized that others would see opportunity and rush to fill the void. Agnes Intelligence was founded in 2018 from John Snyder’s NY trial litigation firm. It is not surprising that the user interface and functionality focus on trial prep and triaging [...]

New Partnership – Kind of Like the Old Partnership

Expanded access to analytics sounds like a positive. My question is how that stacks up in functionality and pricing to RelativityOne? I have received complaints from clients and peers that Epiq’s massive Relativity infrastructure lags the RelativityOne release cycle. Epiq customers are still being billed for analytics that are free for RelOne customers. The wording on this announcement makes me assume that customers will [...]

Hardware and AI Partnership Translated

This one took me a while and two websites to figure out exactly what was being sold. I highly encourage tech marketing execs pitching to a legal audience to re-examine their messaging to GET TO THE POINT. I understood that this was a partnership announcement between an AI company and a legal tech company. It took a while to figure out that George Jon [...]

Is Categorization the Key to Cleaning Your Data Garage?

Way back in 2006 I was part of the Symantec team evaluating the Orchestria classification engine for a potential acquisition (CA later bought them). While the security folks were all focused on DLP, I wanted to use Symantec’s anti-virus root kit to classify unstructured files on local and network shares. They were my nemesis in my prior corporate litsupport director role. As Autonomy found [...]

You Must Export Your Advanced eDiscovery v.1.0 Matters by Dec. 30 2020

If you somehow missed the September 11, 2020 announcement (MC223426) or January’s (MC199461) admin message, Microsoft has now effectively disabled any legal matters you have in the original Advanced eDiscovery (designated v1.0). You can manually export the data, but I have yet to find any reports or convenience features that would enable a lonely litsupport manager to dump out a list of matters, custodians, [...]

Connectors are Key to Unified Data Management

Many years ago as a product manager at Symantec (now Veritas again), I advocated for the acquisition of Globanet because they were a key partner in so many of our compliance-eDiscovery deals. The Veritas Compliance Portfolio covers the core enterprise unstructured data sources (file shares, Office365, Box, Exchange, SharePoint and many more) with a variety of solutions. Their eDiscovery Platform even does remote laptop [...]

Who is Hiding Your COVID-19 Guideline Cheese?

I recently challenged eDiscovery providers with cloud collection and review solutions to start tracking the CDC and OSHA websites giving the official safety guidelines for business reopening. Since then, news outlets have clear evidence that those CDC guidelines have been changed in response to political pressure. While keeping eDJ discussions apolitical, I feel the need to raise the red flag in regard to the [...]
