One of the strengths of kCura’s Relativity is the flexible home it offers to other companies whose products involve the collection and use of data. An increasing number of niche products are extending their uses, and their user bases, by integration with Relativity.
One such is Blackdot Solutions, whose arrangement with kCura is described in this Legal IT Insider article. At Relativity Fest in London I interviewed Max Cockerill of Blackdot Solutions and asked him about Blackdot’s software integration with Relativity.
Max Cockerill said that Blackdot Solutions’ software is focused on investigations and, in particular, on allowing clients to supplement their own data sets with data collected online from the internet, from news sources and from external databases.
This has particular value for Know Your Customer applications and for due diligence exercises. It allows clients to put their own data into a wider context and to make connections which they did not have from their own data alone.
