Fios, a developer of e-discovery solutions, and Content Analyst, a provider of advanced text analytics software, have partnered to enhance Fios' e-discovery services.
Fios will use Content Analyst's CAAT conceptual search and analytical software to help clients search and analyze large amounts of electronically stored information (ESI) during review and in the early stages of e-discovery planning. Fios also announced a strategic partnership with iCONECT, another leader in e-discovery software.
Fios is integrating Content Analyst Analytical Technology (CAAT) into its review platform, Prevail. The companies explain that CAAT works by analyzing entire documents, based on concepts vs. keyword or search terms, and identifying appropriate categories and documents even if key search terms aren't present in those documents. This technology is resistant to typographical and transcription errors, so documents can be correctly grouped and clustered despite inadvertent or even deliberate misspellings. The technology can also be applied to validate key search terms and analyze evidence in advance of discovery and the FRCP 26(f) "meet and confer" conference.
