Recommind is holding its inaugural London eDiscovery Professionals Symposium in London on 16 March. The programme, which you can see here, runs from tea at 15:30 through to drinks at 18:00, has a mixture of discussion about eDiscovery and Information Governance and updates on Recommind Axcelerate 5.3.
One of the main benefits of Axcelerate 5.3 is the visibility which Recommind calls Business Intelligence, that is, the idea that electronic discovery is not merely a technical function carried out ancillary to litigation or investigation but a key component of the management of the business. Much of Recommind’s new development is aimed at giving businesses a clearer picture of the information (not just the data) which they own and which they need to access either for reactive purposes (such as an eDiscovery demand) or for finding value in the data.
These objectives are amongst the part of the broad remit of the Information Governance Initiative and Bennett Borden, who is both a founder of the IGI and a partner and chair of the Information Governance and eDiscovery Group at Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP, will discuss this subject under the heading Achieving strategic advantage through visibility into information.
The closing session brings us back to electronic discovery / eDisclosure with a Q&A session called Litigation support – trends, challenges and changes for the year ahead. I am moderating this panel, whose members are Bennett Borden, Andrew Moir of Herbert Smith Freehils, Mark Simmons of Ashurst, and Bill Onwusah of Hogan Lovells.
The target audience for the symposium includes litigation and eDiscovery support professionals, eDiscovery partners and associates, and consultants involved in any aspect of eDiscovery or information governance.
