In 2019, CDS launched CDS Convert, a proprietary application that converts data from chat, collaboration and ticketing platforms like Teams, Bloomberg, WhatsApp, and Jira to Relativity Short Message Format (RSMF). Not long after, the use of these popular platforms skyrocketed due to the global pandemic, displacing email as the main mode of business communication. And there’s no going back.
At CDS, we’ve already seen the impact on eDiscovery projects. Data volumes have grown, driven in large part by the uptick in short message data. In 2020, CDS Convert transformed an average of 6 million messages per month to RSMF, enabling users to review these communications seamlessly in one platform.
Join CDS’ Chris O’Connor and Mark Anderson, Lead Designer of CDS Convert for a discussion of the emerging challenges in eDiscovery collection, processing and review of this nonstandard data. We’ll also provide an update on the evolution of CDS Convert and the Relativity Short Message Format (RSMF).
Topics will include:
- New challenges on the horizon for communication and collaboration apps
- Development and enhancements in eDiscovery short message tools
- What to do when your data outpaces your tech solution
- SMF in the News: Latest legal and tech developments shaping the conversion landscape
