Cases that are winnable on the law and facts can end up being lost because of discovery costs. Fortunately, new ediscovery technologies can give you key insights into a case before you conduct an expensive linear document review. In some instances, these technologies can even obviate such a review.
Lexis DiscoveryIQ … in One Sentence
Launching this week, Lexis DiscoveryIQ is an all-in-one ediscovery platform with an emphasis on early case assessment.
The Killer Feature
Using several new technologies, DiscoveryIQ seeks to reduce litigation costs by enabling you to find relevant documents and develop insights about a case faster.
For example, DiscoveryIQ's statistical sampling technology tells you the percentage of likely relevant documents among those you've collected. You can take this analysis further with DiscoveryIQ's proprietary predictive coding technology. A form of machine learning, predictive coding involves training DiscoveryIQ to find relevant documents on its own. You can select a confidence level negotiated with opposing counsel or ordered by a judge.
DiscoveryIQ also features Brainspace's Discovery 5 via an exclusive licensing relationship. Discovery 5 adds concept searching and data visualizations to DiscoveryIQ. For example, when you enter a search term, you can view related terms that also exist in the documents you're searching. Using simple sliders, you can adjust the importance of each related term. The Focus Wheel enables you to visualize your search so that you can get a handle on how many relevant documents exist for each key issue in the case.
Other Notable Features
After creating a new case in DiscoveryIQ, you use the built-in processing tools to ingest the data collected from custodians. These tools automatically de-duplicate documents and email messages, perform any necessary OCR, and create near-native versions of documents for improved reading comprehension (e.g., spreadsheets look like they would in Excel). Unlike traditional processing tools, you can begin reviewing processed data immediately.
In addition to the advanced technologies discussed above, DiscoveryIQ also offers traditional ad-hoc searching via the Explore tab. Powered by dtSearch, you can search by date range and Boolean operators, and apply filters such as custodian, file type, etc. No matter how you find documents, the Review environment in DiscoveryIQ enables you to apply customizable tags such as Confidential, Privileged, and Hot Document.
The DiscoveryIQ Dashboard helps you stay on top of your cases. The Document Timeline visualizes your team's progress, and provides key metrics such as total documents and total custodians. The Dashboard also displays the number of searches, filters, and Brainspace tags used to date.
What Else Should You Know?
You can perform a traditional linear review in DiscoveryIQ or export documents for use in any ediscovery review product. DiscoveryIQ sports a clean, modern interface that runs in all desktop and mobile web browsers, including Chrome and Safari on the iPad. Learn more about Lexis DiscoveryIQ.
