The fact that I rather liked its old website does not prevent me from appreciating iCONECT’s smart new site which launched this week. There is a reason why most websites follow a common form, to do with intuitive navigation, and it is quite difficult to come up with something which is attractive and different whilst still making it easy for the user to get to the parts you want them to see. iCONECT has managed it – an extension, perhaps, of the navigation expertise which it bring to its XERA platform.
By happy chance, the launch of the new site coincides with a story about iCONECT’s involvement in the BP oil spill case. Avansic: eDiscovery and Digital Forensics, one of iCONECT’s hosting providers, was chosen as the Plaintiff’s Steering Committee’s eDiscovery litigation support consultants and iCONECT was selected as the best software solution for the extremely large and complex eDiscovery exercise.
Vivian Tero of IDC has written a Buyer Case Study which looks at the requirements of the plaintiffs and at the reasons why iCONECT was chosen to provide the platform. This is a succinct summary, not a full requirements document, and is the more valuable for it. It is not every day that one has to face the complexity of litigation on this scale, but the principles set out in Vivian Tero’s paper apply to more everyday cases. You can access the paper via the story here.
