    10th Annual Relativity Fest Recap

    October 27, 2019

    As one of the industry’s most experienced, long-standing Relativity partners – with 35 Relativity Certified Administrators on the PM team, no less – it’s not surprising that Relativity Fest is one of the most important events on the CDS calendar, outside of our own one-day forum, Putting Insights Into Practice (PIIP), which takes place the first week of February.

    CDS always aims to bring a strong presence and big voice to Relativity Fest, and we definitely hit that mark this year in Chicago, October 20-23, 2019. In addition to over 20 CDS team members from around the globe, Managing Director William Belt, Director of Managed Services Cory Logan, Sue-Deelia Tang, Client Solutions Director, and Director Brand Janssen participated in three innovative sessions on hot-button topics. Joined by panelists from Exelon, FedEx Services, Waste Management and Clifford Chance LLP, we addressed the myriad issues for corporations moving to the cloud, running a successful managed service offering, and new business applications for Relativity.

    From the high attendance and participation at each session (not to mention our CDS happy hour at Sociale!), we can comfortably say CDS is at the forefront of some of the most important conversations in the eDiscovery space and beyond. Over the years, as we have transitioned beyond traditional ediscovery, we find our clients increasingly introducing us as their ‘partner’ rather than ‘the vendor that does their e-discovery.’ It’s truly an honor to be recognized as such. Our client relationships have grown deeper because we have also ventured deeper in helping them transform and innovate their growing operations.

    Congratulations to the Relativity team and Happy 10th Anniversary to Relativity Fest. As for the CDS team, we’re closing the door on this year’s event feeling at the top of our game and inspired to dig even deeper to beat our best!
