Technology in Practice 2017 launches in Toronto at the Shangri-La Hotel tonight, and after months of planning and coordination we are very excited to be hosting a sold out event! As we look ahead to what promises to be an incredible two days of education and CoNEXTion, we wanted to take a moment to recognize our incredible sponsors.
These organizations have invested their own time and resources to help make the conference a success. We are honoured to stand beside each one of them over the next two days and generate ideas that inspire, expand perspectives and drive our industry forward.
The editors of The Relativity Blog recently reached out vetern eDiscovery professionals to get their tips on how to engage your eDiscovery teams in order to get everyone on board with using analytics tools.
Among the interviewed experts were our own Yvette Bula, Senior Director, Discovery Solutions, and Jessica Lockett, Director, Legal Solutions, who had this to say about seeking inspiration from effective workflows in order to encourage their teams:
The perspective of this article is a great reminder to set goals in order to grow and thrive in today’s “VUCA” world (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous). Rapid technology advancement and information overload coupled with seemingly limitless opportunity can make it difficult to stay focused and achieve; particularly in the absence of clear goals.
As we head into the last weekend before Technology in Practice 2016 launches in Toronto, and a bit of calm before what promises to be a very busy but exciting week ahead, we wanted to take a moment to recognize our incredible sponsors.
These organizations have invested their own time and resources to help us make this conference what it is today. But beyond that, they have helped make our industry what it is today. They are by definition, "Champions of eDiscovery", having had the courage to lead the industry by opening doors for others and pioneering new ways of working.
Thank you to all of our Technology in Practice 2016 Sponsors.

Analytics use in ediscovery is most successful when the team of experts behind the technology work in similar ways. In his article, kCura's Constantine Pappas explores the healthy habits that every successful analytics team has.

Our industry exists in an era of fast-paced innovation, but you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who could successfully
argue that new technology, in itself, by itself, is enough. Each product or feature needs to be supported with instructional content that makes the technology accessible and perhaps even attractive to its intended users. Even so, there is only so much a technology creator can do to ensure a positive outcome once the product ships and arrives in the customer’s hands.
We’ve learned that being successful, truly successful, with text analytics requires specific patterns in case teams’ processes. What’s more, customers who take ownership of their analytics success appear to travel very similar paths, and we’d like to spend a bit of time today exploring a few of these trends in the form of three useful tips.
Successful analytics users:
1. Know their data.
2. Ask, don’t guess.
3. Practice, practice, practice.

Last week, editors of The Relativity Blog reached out to Yvette Bula, Senior Director of Technical Services at Commonwealth Legal, to get her thoughts on how using a combination of analytics tools can narrow down the scope of complex cases—even when it comes to technology-assisted review.
The three tools discussed in this informative article include:
1. Email Threading
2. Concept Searching

Last month, kCura published this great article that addresses the questions lawyers still get about the value of applying the latest ediscovery technology on their cases. Interestingly, these questions not only come from their clients, but from other colleagues.
Q1: What's so wrong with the way we've always done it?
Q2: Isn't keyword searching all we need?
Q3: How can the benefits of something like technology-assisted review outweigh the risks that the computer might miss something?
Of course, I had to chime in on this very relevant topic...
