Back in the Big Apple for my umpteenth Legal Tech. I am eager to see what is hot and new with all the product releases for this year. Legal Tech NY is the traditional release date for new products, major versions and Go To Market (GTM) campaigns. This year the question for technology providers will be how competitors can differentiate themselves from the kCura juggernaut. I will be looking for service providers with Alternative Fee Arrangements (AFA) that depart from the $/GB addiction that has dominated our eDiscovery budgets. What else am I looking for? I want to see if anyone has come up with new OCR tricks for the old paper collections from my energy and mining clients. It has been almost a year since kCura acquired Content Analyst, so I expect announcements from Relativity competitors like Ipro shedding CAAT in favor of a clustering engine like Hot Neuron or Brainspace. The eDiscovery market is rapidly evolving and LTNY is one of the best places to spot the trends and meet with peers. Although my briefing slots have been booked up for several weeks, I can always find time to do a good karma introduction. So email me if you are at the show and I hope that our paths cross. I might have to run for my next briefing, but I always block out time to walk the show floor and talk with folks. I will try to publish raw briefing notes and impressions. Some of my briefings:

  • kCura
  • Ipro
  • Lighthouse eDiscovery
  • CloudNine
  • Cullable
  • LogicKull
  • Ledes Oversight Committee
  • Nuix
  • Total Discovery
  • Intella
  • Fronteo
  • TRU Staffing
  • Yerra
  • FTI Technologies


Stay skeptical my friends!
