Description

What does ‘big data’ mean to you? For some legal teams, 100,000 documents is a big data challenge. For others, the panic sets in at 5,000. No matter what the numbers, legal teams of all sizes and sophistication levels can be faster and more efficient at taming ‘big data’ when they use new ways to break that data into small and easy to review chunks. In this webinar, you’ll see how Ringtail’s simple to learn and use visual analytics can improve your strategy on 100k, 50k and even 5k (and fewer!) document cases. From automatically separating documents into thematic groups to finding hot facts and key custodian conversations fast to supporting the quick analysis of like document families, Ringtail’s analytics make tasks that used to take a week, take an hour. If you’ve been thinking analytics – and Ringtail – is only for large, complicated matters, think again! During this webinar we will show:

  • How Ringtail’s Document Mapper shows 5,000 thematically grouped documents at a glance
  • How automatic concept clustering makes review faster
  • How to find documents that keyword search based platforms will not find
  • How search term hit highlighting and search term families save time and money
  • How to code multiple documents at the same time
  • How to use analytics to prepare for depositions and trial proceedings

Join us on Thursday, June 4, 2015 from 12:00 to 1:00 pm Central for the live Webinar, “Selecting the right e-Discovery Solution for your Company,” sponsored by ZyLAB.

Description

Using an eDiscovery solution to keep control over your data and preparing for potential litigation can dramatically reduce storage costs, legal fees paid to outside vendors and lower IT operation costs. But whether you want to select an eDiscovery service provider for a single case or want to bring a full end-to-end system in-house, the selection of the right solution is a delicate process.

In this practical webinar George J. Socha, Esq, co-founder of EDRM & Apersee and Johannes Scholtes, Chief Strategy Officer of ZyLAB will discuss pitfalls and key considerations in the selection process. The webinar will be moderated by Mary Mack, who will leverage her decade of thought leadership and practical experience in the eDiscovery community.

EDRM webinar, “Using Ringtail to Manage Rolling Matters,” sponsored by FTI
Jun 9 @ 1:00 pm CDT – 2:00 pm CDT

Join us on Tuesday, June 9, 2015 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm Central when we present the free live EDRM Webinar, “Using Ringtail to Manage Rolling Matters,” sponsored by FTI Consulting.

Register

Description

One of the most challenging aspects of e-discovery is the “rolling” nature of data collection and processing and its impact on document review. Often teams finish ingesting and coding one data set only to have to start all over again when a new collection comes in the door. Compounded by tight production deadlines, these piecemeal data sets can make legal teams feel like they are waking up to Groundhog Day all over again. It’s crucial to have tools and processes that support automation and replication within rolling matter workflows in order to save time and reduce cost. In this webinar we will show you how the new Ringtail platform allows you to automate the introduction of new data, use data snapshots to set strategy and manage review assignments, leverage previous coding decisions and take advantage of concept clustering to make short work of rolling additions. During this webinar attendees will learn:

  • How Ringtail’s new automated processing module makes ingestion easy, fast and repeatable
  • How e-mail threading adds efficiency during a rolling matter
  • How to use concept clustering and analytics to intelligently combine new document sets with previous
  • How to perform visual QA to quickly identify problems
  • How to re-use processing settings and coding decisions
