Editor Comment:

Rumor-mill articles like this one remind me of the chatter during the HP-Autonomy acquisition. The author does document the requests/responses to Brainspace’s parent companies. It is far too easy to assume fire from smoky standard PR disclaimers or lack of responses. I have heard similar rumors about Exterro and other eDiscovery players more times than I could count. Without someone willing to go on the record it is nothing but conjecture. IF Brainspace is acquired, I hope that it will stay platform agnostic. As good as Relativity’s CAAT integration has gotten, the market needs independent A.I. solutions that provide customers with options. While I could see how Brainspace would benefit the OpenText portfolio, I do not consider any of the other eDiscovery players as real potential buyers.
