The Highly Efficient eDiscovery Process: AccessData and Summation
AccessData acquired CT Summation in July 2010 to extend its eDiscovery platform. We believe they will be one of the success stories. AD eDiscovery already offered identification, collection, preservation, processing, analysis and early case assessment. What they lacked was a review and production platform, and they filled this gap by acquiring venerable CT Summation.
Company Profile: AccessData
Since its founding, AccessData has been a worldwide leader in computer forensics. The company developed its core technology to support cyber-security and eDiscovery markets, and has now has added industry-standard review capabilities to its eDiscovery line. The end result is an integrated architecture that enables AccessData to offer single-vendor efficiencies across the highest levels of digital forensics, cyber-security and litigation support.
Predictive Coding For Document Review: Real? Yes. Game Changer? Not yet.
This Opinion will discuss the use of predictive coding for automated document re- view. Predictive coding has been stampeding the eDiscovery press for the last few weeks as a certain company patents some specific technologies around the process. (They tried to register “predictive coding” as a trademark but that got shot down.) However, the resulting storm of protest pointed out three important things: 1) eDiscovery vendors have used elements of predictive coding for years but may call it something else, 2) predictive coding can occur throughout the eDiscovery cycle, and 3) predic- tive coding for automated review is not ready to take the legal world by storm.
A large law firm is being sued for poor document review practices. What's ironic is that law firms screw up eDiscovery all the time -- but this time a litigious client fought back.
I spoke with Kurt Jensen, co-founder and EVP of Daegis. We discussed some 2012 eDiscovery trends in 2012 and their new corporate eDiscovery platform.
Predictive coding is quite a good tool for accelerating some manual analysis and review tasks. It is also not new in spite of some marketing to the contrary.
eDiscovery provider Integreon offers adaptive coding with their eView 4.0 review platform. Pairing the technology with Integreon’s process expertise is an excellent way to plumb the depths of its review offerings.
For legal review users, ease-of-use is a vital feature and can make the difference between winning and losing sales opportunities.
