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. [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Yet Another O365 Data Source – Meeting Transcriptions

With a majority of our key employees working remotely via Zoom meetings, conference calls and various chat platforms Microsoft has just added automatic transcription functionality to user’s online Word application. This functionality enables users to convert previously recorded or live audio into a pretty good transcript that differentiates between speakers and has an associated xml file with the segment times. Tech savvy users have [...]

Best Hosted Analytics Options for Non-Litigation Discovery?

My philosophy is once a client, always a client. Got what seemed to be a typical referral request from a counsel I had recently supported on a corporate client matter. The classic, “Who do you recommend for Relativity hosting?” quickly went down a rabbit hole of new generation data sources, foreign language docs and such that wrote off any of the new self-service providers/platforms. [...]

“Effectively eliminate any need for manual review” – REALLY?

If you are anything like me, you get 10-100 emails per day with eDiscovery press announcements, marketing blasts, webinars and more. Back in 2008 I built a Google CSE to manage the firehose of information and make sure that I kept up with the market. The original eDiscoveryJournal.com used that search engine to create a feed that we culled, curated, classified and commented on. [...]

A Corporate Perspective on Relativity Analytics Usage Cases

I rode along with a full day Relativity analytics training session yesterday. No. It was not billable, but I will be working with that client to develop their workflows and protocols to leverage the analytics in their discovery requests. I consider it a good investment of my time in this time. Besides, I love an excuse to get hands on with tech. Overall, I [...]
