Today’s expansive data source environments are much more complex, as is the regulatory environment driving decisions on compliance strategy. What steps can organizations take to prepare to handle the challenges of a dispersed, diversified data landscape in advance of any compliance requirement event?
Thought Leadership and Industry Trends
Large internal eDiscovery teams often manage their own data processing, and use outside expert services for complicated data sets or when large matters require additional resources. Learn how RelativityOne’s Import/Export tool allows users to drag and drop data directly into their Relativity workspace for full document processing.
Tracking user activity on a matter-by-matter basis can be extremely tedious, time-consuming and cost-intensive. Months and even years of active hosting and user costs can accumulate on inactive matters while case teams await a final disposition or settlement agreement. Vision AutoArchive automates eDiscovery database management based on user activity and other pre-set criteria.
Legacy manual reporting methods required the running of database scripts, saved searches, exports and compilation of metrics, often across platforms to provide eDiscovery snapshots in time. AutoReport allows for the scheduling and automated delivery of detailed metrics reporting directly from Relativity.
Narrowing down the universe of relevant documents as quickly as possible to expedite review and production is the greatest challenge in any eDiscovery matter. AutoRank allows clients to fully realize the benefits of Relativity Active Learning at any stage of the search, review, and production process while maintaining the flexibility to review documents based on matter-specific production priorities.
Overturn reporting can be a tedious, manual process, often performed on a weekly basis to avoid excessive professional service charges. AutoTracker integrates with the RelativityOne workspace to automate the process of tracking and reporting reviewer overturns.
In this series, we explore a series of proprietary automations for review, analytics, reporting and database management that comprise the CDS Vision 2.0 feature release which streamlines and automates time-intensive, essential processes for CDS Relativity users.
Why Small- and Medium-Sized Businesses (SMBs) Should Leverage the Cloud When Choosing eDiscovery Technology
Companies with lean legal teams have more options than ever for managing the eDiscovery process that don’t require special training or certifications. Cloud-based eDiscovery platforms are shifting the data management landscape by giving companies of all sizes on-demand access to tools that empower them to take control of their data.
For government agencies, pilot programs are a great way to experiment with new technology. Frequently, there are questions around implementation, access and overall functionality. Implementing a pilot program allows an agency to identify these challenges early, develop synergy with their provider and define the service model that will be necessary for larger scale adoption.
In the U.S., the ABA has estimated that document review alone accounts for more than 80 percent of total litigation spend, totaling tens of billions of dollars per year. As data becomes more varied and complex and volumes increase, that number is only going to rise. The dominance of social media, the increased use of short form multichannel messaging platforms, and even the growing popularity of podcasts have only widened the scope of what is considered fair game for discovery.
As we hit the halfway point in a year like no other, now is a good time to take a look at your service provider relationships. Are they meeting your standards – and, for that matter, have your standards changed? Four legal-technologists from CDS had an in-depth discussion on that very topic during the recent webinar, What Have You Done for Me Lately? Examining Your Vendor Relationships.
COVID-19 has disrupted almost all normal business practices, making many activities challenging to handle virtually. Fortunately, eDiscovery can largely continue on pace, thanks to technology and remote collection workflows. Shifting to fully remote or socially distanced collections, whether to accommodate shelter-in-place orders or employee safety concerns, is achievable in most circumstances.
