Demystifying eDiscovery for Data Intelligence

Feb 24, 2021

Data Intelligence in the context of eDiscovery can have many different meanings.  Defined broadly, data intelligence is the quest to organize, analyze, understand, and transform raw data into a format that can tell a story and inform critical legal decision making.  This could involve the use of search terms, date filters, analytics, artificial Intelligence, or machine learning, with the cumulative effect of creating actionable data intelligence.

So where should legal practitioners begin their quest?

Data visualizations can play an integral role in expediting the quest for data intelligence.  Predefined filters applied to initial data sets can quickly identify irrelevant data and categorize privileged, personal identification and health information for further review.  From there, advanced analytics can be deployed to visualize concepts and communications patterns and inform the creation of search terms.  Finally, targeted review and coding decision analysis and production can bring the story to a conclusion.

CDS Vision provides a dedicated “Data Intelligence” dashboard that leverages advanced algorithms, predefined filters and best practice workflows to create a repeatable streamlined process for evaluating data.  With Vision – Data Intelligence, users have the full power of Relativity Visualizations coupled with CDS proprietary filters, workflow and technology to quickly and efficiently navigate the most crucial phases of the EDRM and ensure their matters stay on track and within budget.
