Handling M365 AED Unindexed Content

A question to the eDiscovery Facebook group asked how others were handling the unindexed items reported in M365 core and AED searches. If you have not run M365 eDiscovery searches yet or not noticed the Status section of the search detail page, it provides the item count and volume of ‘unsearchable items’ in the sources that your search. In my recent legal hold validation [...]

Relativity-X1 – Well Timed for the Pandemic

Today’s announcement of the Relativity-X1 Enterprise integration had me puzzled at first. After all, Relativity Collect has been integrated with X1 Discovery files/emails since 2019. So what is the difference? Digging into the announcement and their documentation, my take on the new integration with X1 Enterprise Platform is the indexing of remote custodians and other data sources for in place search/collection. There are two [...]

eDiscovery Tech Bugs: The Emperor’s Clothes?

I want to thank you all for the flood of responses to my tech alert. Our peers stepped up to confirm this and other potential issues experienced in Microsoft 365 (M365) and other market leading eDiscovery tech. Most have been aware of various issues going back years. Your feedback confirms my assertion that technical bugs, system limits and undocumented exceptions are common and always [...]

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 It is out of date on a couple points, but it has been sitting in my News list because Bruce does a very good job of putting Microsoft Search evolution in context.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 [...]

M365 eDiscovery Search Alert

For enterprise on M365 E3/E5 that have been running keyword searches to export data from OneDrive and SharePoint for discovery in 2020, you may have had a problem. This will be a long piece, so I will try to pack the important parts up front. Last August, while testing the new online Microsoft  (“MSFT”) Word transcription feature I stumbled onto what appeared to be [...]

Exterro:AccessData – Reverse Food Chain?

These kinds of parallel acquisitions generally happen right after a round of funding. To provide some context, Exterro was founded in 2004 and took $100M round of funding in 2018. Zoominfo has them at $36M in revenue with 170 employees (grain of salt). Founded in 1987, AccessData was one of the first forensic tools I used during my CSI years. Owler has AD’s at [...]

eDJBrief: Haystak – A Different Kind of Search Engine

Haystak is not an eDiscovery search engine. Not yet. Instead, it is a new take on enterprise search and tagging that could address key pain points experienced by remote employees juggling content across local, network and cloud repositories. Just last week my mentor Skip Walter expressed how frustrating it was to have to separately search for documents scattered across email accounts, SharePoint sites, Teams, [...]

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 [...]
