Daegis, Exterro Add Predictive Coding
Two more e-discovery vendors hopped on the predictive coding bandwagon this week, which may have some speculating at what point the technology will be omnipresent in the industry.
Roseville, Calif.-based Daegis Inc., a company that hosts its software for law firms and corporate legal, announced Acumen, its machine learning technology that will be available as a standard feature for subscribing clients and also for customers on a per-gigabyte model, reports Evan Koblentz. Acumen takes what Doug Stewart, vice president of technology at Daegis, describes as a "process-driven" approach.
Exterro Inc. of Portland, Ore., is adding its own technology-assisted review offering, Predictive Intelligence, to its Fusion Zeta platform, reports Koblentz. With Fusion's focus on corporations, the product is being pitched as an option for early case assessment in addition to downstream review.
Ajith Samuel, Exterro's executive vice president of process innovation, described this as using predictive technologies to move "production to the left" of the EDRM. The predictive coding module will be available for approximately $100K with no per-gigabyte charges, according to Samuel.
So two more contenders have entered the race to bring automation to bear on ever growing volumes of data. Expect another soon to come running. Read the full stories on LTN online.
