M365 Advanced eDiscovery Spring Update

Microsoft’s Information & Protection teams are rolling out Advanced eDiscovery(AED) updates at a remarkable rate. The product team’s April 7th webinar and presentation deck has not yet been published, but I wanted to share some perspectives on how these updates may impact AED users. The pandemic has driven E5 license upgrades and features to support remote employees, which makes AED usage more practical for [...]

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: Building AI Driven eDiscovery

If you missed the news, Reveal took a $200M round of funding from K1 Capital and promptly acquired Brainspace. I was lucky enough to get an early briefing on this while brainstorming with the Reveal team on using their platform to analyze the Parler data to support the FBI investigations. In the last year Reveal acquired Mindseye (triage/ECA), LexLP (AI/ML) and even picked up [...]

Battling Confirmation Bias When Training TAR

In this age of division and widely divergent views of reality, I do a lot of reading trying to understand how so many of us fall down internet rabbit holes into such extreme perspectives. This short article and the prior one on cognitive bias resonated with me on an issue I see frequently when brought in to analyze/support a large TAR review or even [...]

Unlimited Mailboxes = Email Hoarding?

The pace of corporate migrations to Microsoft 365 (the new name for Office 365) has accelerated over the last nine years (2011 launch). I have supported these migrations of most of my long term clients with policy reviews, preservation audits, workflow adaptions and more. Two to five years post-migration my health checks and annual discovery metrics reports tell a universal tale of bloated mailboxes. [...]

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 [...]
