Creating example documents for eDiscovery search with iCONECT Xmplar

Providers of eDiscovery software have two ambitions in their marketing. The first is to persuade people who are not yet converted to the concept to look at any software in order to get the idea. The second, of course, is to encourage people to look at their own products.

iCONECT has always been good at this, and its iCONECT-XERA discovery review software is designed to be both attractive and instantly comprehensible to users. Its blog makes a good job of pointing out specific functions which are particularly useful and which may be missed by those new to eDiscovery as well as to those who have not yet had a look at iCONECT-XERA.

iCONECT-XERA ranked well in the recent 2018 eDiscovery Buyers Guide. A blog post by Lynn Frances Jae called The review is in and it’s good news draws attention to a couple of the specific functions which the Buyer’s Guide highlighted, including the ability to search for empty fields and the document compare function which allows users to investigate the differences in both the text and in their own metadata.

Lynn Frances Jae gives another specific example in her most recent blog post More from the eDiscovery buyer’s guide review. It is the proprietary iCONECT tool called Xmplar which allows reviewers to create a synthetic document and have the analytics engine find documents containing similar concepts. It is not always easy to identify a real document which will serve this purpose, and the ability to create one is extremely useful.
