DTI invests in Valora Technologies for auto-classification, predictive analytics and data mining

The merger last year of DTI and Epiq made one of the largest and most significant players in the global legal technology market. I recently interviewed Keith Conley, President and COO at DTI, who emphasised (among other things) the in-house capability of the merged business to provide in-house processing with DMX. The implication was that DTI / Epiq would bring its resources to developing and enhancing technology and not just to using it.

That intent is further evidenced by the announcement last week that DTI has made a strategic investment in Valora Technologies. Valora has long been a significant name in auto-classification, predictive analytics and document data mining technologies for information governance, eDiscovery and Records Management. It has remained narrowly focused in this niche area, becoming a respected specialist in its field. DTI’s investment is described as “the beginning of the coming-of-age of auto-classification” as well as evidence of DTI’s commitment to the technology behind information governance solutions.

Sandra Serkes, CEO of Valora said:

“Our mission is to transform the creation and utilization of rich metadata for mission-critical information management purposes, such as large content migrations, file cleanups, remediation, classification and compliance.”

It will be interesting to see how this develops.

There is a press release about this here.
