Link to press release: Dallas, TX (PRWEB) January 9, 2008 — InterLegis, Inc., a Dallas-based innovator of Web-based litigation technologies, today announced the addition of Visual Analytics review capability to its flagship product, Discovery360â„¢. This is the next evolutionary phase of electronic discovery technology. The company has developed a unique, visual approach as a means to both search and review discovery databases. This new technology offers graphical mapping of the data, making the entire review process easier, faster, and more enjoyable.
Ever-growing data collections require new and innovative tools for managing large litigations. And now the ability to see a visual representation of trends or activity spikes within a data set and clusters of related documents allows users to make faster decisions about the data they see, speeding the overall review process. Visual Analytics also will uncover otherwise hidden documents by fleshing out unique, interrelated connections between documents. And because seeing information within a different context can alter the perspective of whether that information is important, InterLegis’ new visual strategy highlights how documents fit within communication trends between parties. This uncovers sometimes critical pieces that otherwise may have been deemed unimportant.
I’ve never thought of looking at a database this way, but it makes perfect sense.
InterLegis’ Visual Analytics not only simplifies the search and review process, but provides the user a more engaging and interesting method for what typically has been a very tedious and mundane activity. The aesthetic appeal alone makes Visual Analytics a significant advancement in e-discovery technology.
In developing Visual Analytics, InterLegis sought the feedback of users and industry thought leaders. Those who have been granted a preview of Visual Analytics were impressed with this new aspect of Discovery360. A partner at one top ten AM LAW 100 firm remarked, “I’ve never thought of looking at a database this way, but it makes perfect sense.”
“Our newest advancement is based on the simple premise that people tend to be visual in nature. They understand information best when it is presented in a logical and illustrative format; when they can actually see what it is they’re dealing with,” said Kevin Carr, president of InterLegis. “We are confident the innovative approach of Visual Analytics will quickly become a new standard in e-discovery technology,” he continued.
Visual Analytics is built into the core of Discovery360, so that it can be used throughout the discovery life cycle. Discovery360 includes every flavor of technology available today including similarity matching, concept foldering, auto coding, e-mail threading, text and meta data, native review and natural language searching, in addition to integrated electronic discovery processing. Visual Analytics can be applied to all of these search and review methods to offer the most unique, comprehensive view of any data collection.
InterLegis is showcasing its Visual Analytics feature of Discovery360 at next month’s LegalTech New York conference. Attendees interested in seeing a demonstration of Visual Analytics can sign up at www.InterLegis.com/NewVision.
