Moves at Daegis, TrustPoint, AccessData, Womble Carlyle
This week's EDD industry news from LTN online includes a new e-discovery president at Daegis, a litigation support provider and an attorney review firm joining forces, product improvements at AccessData, and another law firm adopting Relativity.
Daegis announced its hiring of Deborah Jillson, formerly of AccessData and LexisNexis, as president of its e-discovery division. Jillson plans to add cross-matter management and predictive coding to Daegis' product line by this summer.
Atlanta-based litigation support provider TrustPoint International is merging with attorney review firm Excelerate Discovery to bring managed review and e-discovery products and services together under one company name. TrustPoint also added OrcaTec's Document Decision Suite, which incorporates OrcaTec's random sampling approach to predictive coding, to bring more bang for your e-discovery buck.
AccessData will be offering three products as one in July, bundling its Early Case Assessment with Summation's document review tool, and AccessData eDiscovery. The all-in-one edition will have a single browser-based user interface, an integrated database, and will license each component separately. Add to that a data visualization tool for AccessData's Forensic Toolkit -- it can graph email and file history for users -- and plans for a greater emphasis on web hosting
Another law firm, Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice, is bringing kCura's e-discovery platform Relativity in-house. Relativity's ease-of-use, its stability as a document review platform, advanced analytics such as predictive coding and clustering through its Relativity Assisted Review component, and the ability to build custom applications within the software all played a role in Womble Carlyle settling on Relativity.
