Short eDiscovery updates to 20 October

Here is a summary of the (relatively few) eDiscovery updates posted on my Google Plus page between 14 and 20 October.


Xerox adds streamlined redaction to its upgraded Omnix 5.4 discovery platform

The headline feature in the new release of the Xerox XLS discovery platform Omnix is a redactions tool which allows redactions to be applied automatically, together with reasons for the redaction, to specific terms in documents based on search results and advanced text pattern hits.

Going it alone: Millnet comment on Drinker Biddle’s in-house discovery function

Nuix and RSD partnership aims to bring data in from the cold

Recommind: The ROI of Predictive Coding – Thursday, 18 October

This webinar discusses the cost savings and the quality improvements associated with Predictive Coding. It is obviously good to be able to assess in advance what the return will be on the investment in any technology. Two things are needed to begin – some metrics from past cases in order to see what the typical cost is, and some idea of the percentage reduction which might be achieved using the proposed technology. Given the cost of review, you do not need a very high percentage reduction to pay for the use of the technology. [More]
