kCura publishes Relativity Assisted Review case study from Millnet

One of the easy predictions for 2013 was that we would begin to see case studies, or at least anecdotes, about the use of technology assisted review. These are, of course, more valuable than any number of assertions  in marketing department brochures.

The most recent is UK-based and comes from the use by UK eDiscovery solutions provider Millnet of kCura‘s Relativity Assisted Review. kCura’s introduction is here and the case study itself is here. The things to focus on (apart from the £80,000 saving) are the table of statistics and the description of the methods used to cross-check the software’s conclusions.

It should be of particular interest to those who bang on about “black boxes” as a substitute for actually trying to understand technology assisted review or as a shelter against the certainty that clients will certainly want to know about savings of this order. Case managing judges, too, will expect to be told about the range of technology available to reduce costs, and in cases much smaller than the one in the case study.
