I wrote recently about the expansion of Relatvity’s SaaS solution, RelativityOne, in Singapore. That news was followed almost immediately by an announcement about RelativityOne expansion into South Korea through an e-discovery service provider called Intellectual Data. The press release is here.
Relativity’s incentive in South Korea is similar to that in Singapore. Many Asian countries are seeing a marked growth in demand for enterprise cloud services, both for the daily management of corporate data, and for discovery for regulatory and litigation purposes. Much of that is international in scope, with South Korean parties being subject to demands for collaborative access to data across borders while respecting the need to keep sensitive data within South Korea’s borders.
Georgia Foster, Managing Director APAC at Relativity, drew attention to the “scalability, extensibility and security” of RelativityOne as users face “a diverse set of e-discovery, regulatory, and compliance challenges”.
The APAC region is getting increasingly interesting. I will be speaking to Georgia Foster shortly, and will have more to say about the region, and Relativity’s plans for it, in due course.
