Actiance Partners with Relativity to Streamline E-Discovery
Actiance, a provider of solutions for communications compliance, archiving, and analytics, is partnering with Relativity to improve e-discovery. Actiance will build an application on top of Relativity to help legal professionals export electronically stored information (ESI) from more than 90 communication channels from Alcatraz, Actiance’s cloud-based content store, directly into the Relativity platform, while retaining the channel-specific metadata necessary for efficient legal review and case management.
Used by organizations to review and analyze data around litigation, investigations, and government requests, Relativity brings the e-discovery process together in a single solution — in the cloud, on-premises, or both. Alcatraz is now part of the Relativity App Hub, which includes applications and integrations built by Relativity developer partners that extend the platform's functionality.
Due to the variety of communications tools, email is no longer the only source of electronic communications in e-discovery. More firms today are encountering a wide range of communications channels in e-discovery processes, including text messaging, social media, voice recordings, collaboration tools – even emojis – as sources of ESI. What many are recognizing is the complexity in attempting to understand rich, dynamic conversations that may have taken place over a series of posts or tweets, and in some cases, where those conversations “jump” across channels. According to the vendors, Actiance addresses this challenge by enabling Relativity users to quickly access and review conversational content delivered by Alcatraz as a unique Relativity load file.
Alcatraz enhances e-discovery processes by leveraging its TrueCompliance content collection capabilities to meet new Rule of Evidence 902(14) standards, while accounting for various aspects of communication events, including virtual room logins, emoticons, “like” events, share events, file transfers, wiki/blog posts, and real-time edits and deletions. This integration between Alcatraz and Relativity provides joint customers with the ability to easily export custodian content from all content sources from Alcatraz into Relativity for processing and downstream review.
