Relativity

The truth is important. But there’s a lot of data out there—data volumes are rising and new information sources appear every day—and it can be nearly impossible to find the truth buried in it. And when it comes to legal challenges like litigation or corporate compliance, the truth can be life-changing. It’s the difference between millions of dollars, the right or wrong verdict, or justice taking years instead of months. That's why we built Relativity.

Whether you’re talking to a group of friends or having a one-on-one chat with a client, you better believe body language will be there too. It pervades every interaction we have. And most of us think we know how to read it. Crossed arms? The person’s closed off, maybe even upset. Superhero pose? They’re feeling powerful and in control. Leaning in? Whatever you’re saying is riveting. Just riveting.  But, according to body language expert Alison…
You’ve probably heard it before: A key benefit of working in Relativity is the flexibility of the platform. It’s a workhorse out of the box, but it can do a lot more—if you know how to leverage it.  But how do you get started with making it your own?   The answer lies in Relativity Dynamic Objects (RDOs)—commonly referred to as custom objects. At Relativity Fest 2019, Jens Tobiasson—senior consultant in e-discovery at H5—walked attendees through the creation and use of these objects.  …
Editor’s Note: This post appeared originally as an article in Legaltech News. With the challenges of data privacy and data protection being one of the biggest global challenges, it came as no surprise that the privacy and protection of data were center stage at Legaltech at Legalweek last week. The stakes are high for the lawyers, paralegals, and technologists at ALM Media’s annual gathering in New York, especially when it comes to the privacy and…
Any good security program is multi-faceted, frequently updated, and managed with vigilance. At Relativity Fest 2019, Darian Lewis—a security architect on Relativity’s Calder7 team—shared with attendees how documenting the risks you may be exposed to can help set an important foundation for building and implementing security best practices. During his session—“Cyber Risk Reduction in the Legal Environment”—Darian explained the ins and outs of how to assess and mitigate the risks in play for your organization.…
If you joined us in Chicago for Relativity Fest last fall, you know that we talked a lot about empowerment—empowering communities, empowering organizations, and empowering individuals. But, ultimately, you can’t truly empower the e-discovery community without making it easy for everyone to take advantage of RelativityOne. That’s why last week, we announced a new pay-as-you-go pricing model that will make it easier for everyone to use our powerful and comprehensive SaaS platform. But making…
This January, we welcomed a new decade. A new decade feels like the ultimate fresh start—new year, new me.   But before you give up on your resolutions, it may be helpful to reflect on the past decade. In the discovery space, there have been no shortage of monumental moments that have shaped the last 10 years, from the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to new SaaS solutions.    During our 2020 State of the e-Discovery Union webinar, we looked back at last year’s predictions…
Just a year ago we introduced a number of changes to help all of our customers benefit from SaaS with RelativityOne, including lowering prices by 50 percent and making unlimited analytics and machine learning available to every RelativityOne customer at no additional cost. Since we made those changes, we’ve seen the market continue to shift toward SaaS for the benefits of security, access to innovation, and improvements in scaling and performance. RelativityOne continues to be…
The number of issues and events related to data privacy and data protection over the past several years are enough to inspire new Billy Joel lyrics.   In the Data Privacy and Data Protection 2019 session at Relativity Fest, moderator David Horrigan agreed that the issue is up there with climate change as one of the most important issues facing society today. I always wonder how topics so vast can be wrangled into a 50-minute discussion, but the resulting conversation at Relativity…
If there’s a common mantra uttered by organizations striving to be an industry leader (and to avoid extinction), it’s “business transformation.” Business transformation isn’t a new concept. Despite its prevalence, it’s difficult to even start, much less achieve. After all, transformation doesn’t refer to mere improvements; it’s an overhaul of an organization’s mindset that creates fundamental change. But it’s not impossible—not even for long-established companies with processes that have worked well enough for years.  At their Relativity Fest session in October, Relativity’s Director of Business Transformation Services James Zinn…
The Relativity Fest keynote revealed that since launching active learning in December 2017, the Relativity community had made predictions on more than 750 million documents. That’s more than 500,000 boxes of documents, which is enough to fill more than 150 semi-trucks—an impressive volume, but what’s more impressive are the stories behind these numbers.  The following day, Relativity’s Elise Tropiano led a panel discussion with a few of the Relativity community’s most effective active learning users—Mallory AchesonSean
