Recommind continues to transform itself from a seller of traditional enterprise analytics software for eDiscovery and InfoGov into a pure-play SaaS cloud provider with the sale of the Decisiv Email technology and development team to NetDocuments. The Decisiv email filing recommendation functionality will give NetDocuments a strong differentiator after they have managed to get it integrated to their cloud infrastructure. I am curious to know how the Decisiv core technology relates to Recommind’s Axcelerate predictive coding technology and infamous patents. Will this sale have any impact on legacy Recommind Axcelerate installations? I doubt it. But on-premise customers should carefully watch to see if Recommind makes yet another major go-to-market about face. My wild guess is that investors from the last round of funding ($15M in Q3 2013) might have pushed for some kind of return on a lagging line of business.
