Q2: Isn't keyword searching all we need?

"Collaboration is the cornerstone to growth."

Dec 7, 2015 1:40:22 PM | Marketing

At Relativity Fest 2015, kCura held a “Women in Legal Technology” luncheon, where panelists shared milestones that paved their careers in ediscovery. Not wanting to wait a full year to hear more stories from the brilliant women who make up the ediscovery industry, kCura reached out to a few women at the lunch to gather their advice on working and getting started in ediscovery.

Among these women, Yvette Bula, Director of Technical Services at Commonwealth Legal, had this to say:

Commonwealth Legal was also involved in providing support for the litigation matter, and I was offered an opportunity to join the team after that contract ended."

Ricoh, an Orange-level Relativity Best in Service Partner, recently migrated their Relativity environment to the cloud. To learn more about their experience, we sat down with David Greetham, vice president of e-discovery operations at Ricoh Forensics.
