Amongst the many applications at LegalTech which I was invited to look at but could not fit in was Digital Reef, which allows organisations to identify, collect, process, analyse and review data in place. The advantage of this, obviously, is that they need only move or export relevant information.
Digital Reef is not the only player in this space. I was interested, as much as anything, because Charles Lavallée, whom I knew from his time at CT Summation, has moved to Digital Reef and it was his invitation which I was unable to accept.
It looks as if I will get my chance on this side of the Atlantic because Legal Inc has signed a hosting and reseller agreement with Digital Reef as part of their strategy to provide clients with a case management solution which begins at the client’s own data stores.
I have heard good things of Digital Reef from elsewhere, and if it is good enough for Legal Inc then it is worth looking at. I will do so and report back.
