Today we are announcing some exciting news. Our X1 enterprise eDiscovery solution now integrates with Relativity, the industry leading e-discovery platform. X1 Distributed Discovery, a component of the X1 Enterprise Platform, allows enterprises to search across and collect from up to thousands of custodians in hours, now with direct upload into Relativity, including RelativityOne, utilizing Relativity’s import APIs.
The X1 and Relativity integration addresses several pain points in the existing e-discovery process. For one, there is currently an inability to quickly search across all unstructured data, meaning users have to spend the weeks or even months that are required by other cumbersome solutions. Additionally, using ESI processing methods that involve appliances that are not integrated with the collection significantly increase cost and time delays. And with such an inefficient process there is simply no way for attorneys and legal professionals to gain immediate visibility into data, often leaving them to wait weeks before they have a chance to assess the data, post- collection.
The X1/Relativity integration directly addresses these challenges. Among the substantial benefits of this integration is the dramatic increase in speed to review, flowing directly from the custodian into Relativity on-premise or into the cloud-based RelativityOne platform. And this integration significantly reduces or completely eliminates inefficient ESI processing. X1 will search, cull and de-duplicate data at the point of collection and now integrates with the Relativity ingestion API, rendering inefficient and expensive processing appliances obsolete.
Organizations will be given real time early case assessment within minutes of initial search instead of taking days and weeks for this insight. All of this is achieved with a truly repeatable end-to-end process for enterprises. The combination of X1 and Relativity provides a full and complete e-discovery platform.
“Collecting enterprise ESI can be one of the most daunting parts of the e-discovery process,” said Drew Deitch, senior manager for strategic partnerships at Relativity. “We’re excited to bring X1 into the App Hub, where it will offer users another great way to access, search, process, and import enterprise data into Relativity.”
Finally, with this integration providing a complete platform for efficient data search, discovery and review across the enterprise, this also enables organizations to very effectively address numerous information governance use cases such as GDPR compliance, identifying and removing PII and conducting IP data audits.
