LexisNexis Applied Discovery Enhances E-Discovery Platform

Jul 29, 2008

LexisNexis Applied Discovery, a provider of electronic discovery solutions, has announced the latest version of its e-discovery platform, used by corporations and law firms to review data for complex discovery matters. The enhanced Applied Discovery Online Review Application (ORA) offers advancements for planning and monitoring large review projects, including improvements to workflow, batching and search performance. In addition to the ORA upgrade, Applied Discovery also improves processing capacity, turnaround times, and security as a result of an investment of more than $10 million dollars over the last 12 months in a hosting center upgrade.

The ORA enhancements improve total system performance and speed up reviews, making it ideal for large review teams due to the ease it brings to planning, executing and monitoring an efficient review. Highlights include: An Advanced Review Management (ARM) system, providing targeted capabilities to review supervisors to help streamline review workflow; New ARM tools to define review project stages and objectives, including the ability to assign access to document batches based on user profiles; Intuitive monitoring dashboards and reporting to improve visibility; ORA search performance time saving enhancements, that provide up to a 50% improvement in simple searches and up to 90% for complex searches - compared to the current Applied Discovery ORA, already recognized for fast performance; Enhanced security to help reduce the risk of multi-site, multi-party review; Expansion to greater than 1000 Terabytes of data storage to support the largest cases; and faster grid processing capacity to increase document processing turnaround time.
