kCura has long led the way in encouraging integration between its review platform and other applications, allowing clients to use the tools of their choice as part of a seamless process. The Relativity Ecosystem includes a wide range of applications, many of them well-known products in their own right, which can be used in conjunction with Relativity.
OrcaTec is a provider of predictive coding and advanced analytics. Until now, OrcaTec data was exported into Relativity as an overlay. That process has now being made bi-directional, allowing users to jump back and forth between systems during the review, using whichever functionality is desirable for the stage in hand.
One can envisage circumstances in which senior lawyers are continuing their investigations in OrcaTec whilst a review team begins work on data which has already been exported to Relativity. The tags assigned in either system can be sent to the other and searches built in OrcaTec will now be available in Relativity.
You may also be interested in an article by OrcaTec’s Herb Roitblat called The Schlemiel, The Schlimazel and The Psychology of Reasonableness which turns aside from rules and technology to consider the psychology of dealing with opponents and with the biases which can creep into the handling of the data.
