FTI Technology Adds Concordance(TM) Load File Import to Provide Clients Easy 'On Ramp' to Attenex Patterns
New Features in Latest Version Further Increase Productivity and Reduce Complexity in the E-discovery Process
"I think the new Concordance load feature in Attenex Patterns is a game changer," said
E-discovery is a complex and fragmented industry with hundreds of niche software and service providers that offer tools and services for various phases of the nine-step process outlined by the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM). To manage the entire e-discovery process from the server to the courtroom, legal and IT teams often have to import and export data from multiple tools, frequently resulting in delays and additional costs. To address this, FTI Technology has taken a leadership position in developing the EDRM XML standard, designed to help automate the transfer of data from one application to another. In addition, many tools are able to export data in Concordance format. Consequently, the new Concordance load feature provides an easy and automated "on ramp" for such data to be imported into Attenex Patterns, one of the most widely-used and scalable e-discovery review tools. Highly customizable fields ensure that metadata and any existing work product, such as marks and tags, are preserved and brought into Attenex Patterns for processing, review and analysis.
"As the amount of data involved in legal matters continues to increase, corporations and their law firms need fast and reliable ways to move data from existing platforms to higher performing e-discovery software such as Attenex Patterns," said
In addition to the new Concordance load file features, the latest version of Attenex Patterns includes several enhancements that further help corporations and law firms lower costs and better manage the increasing complexity of e-discovery projects:
-- Enhancements to the exception management interface further optimize the routine handling of problematic files such as corrupt or password-protected files. The inclusion of additional metadata and a redesigned user interface enable faster resolution of exceptions without disruption to the overall data processing and review workflow. -- Integrated embedded object handling speeds the detection and review of embedded objects frequently found in email and office documents. -- Enhanced indexing can further speed processing time and also expands the number of data types that can be indexed by Attenex Patterns.
Attenex Patterns is part of FTI Technology's complete portfolio of e-discovery software products. Attenex Patterns, Ringtail Legal and Ringtail QuickCull provide corporations, law firms and legal service providers with flexible on-premise and on-demand deployment options for pre-processing through production - all from a single provider.
Attenex Patterns 5.3 will be available for general release in Q4 from FTI Technology. For more information, please visit www.ftitechnology.com.
