eDisclosure Analytics Consulting

Optimising the right technology to reduce both time and cost without sacrificing quality

Highlights

  • Almost a decade of experience providing guidance on technology use
  • Experience building predictive coding software and integrating analytics into our own review tool
  • Applied analytics workflows to multiple file types in multiple languages, including Korean, Chinese and Japanese

Many eDisclosure matters begin with a hope that technology will limit the amount of reviewable material and control costs. Yet the results are often the exact opposite: the project increases in complexity, cost and frustration for the case teams.

In almost all of these cases, technology failed to fulfill its promise because it was either the wrong technology for the job or there was a suboptimal workflow used. Consilio’s eDisclosure Analytics consultants have the knowledge gained from practical experience so that our clients avoid these pitfalls and maximise the benefits technology can bring.

We Understand Technology Because We Build It

Consilio engineers built Backstop Predictive Coding—a cutting-edge, machine-learning software. Our team has also spent over a decade developing review software that incorporates analytics to reduce review scope: near dupes, email threading, conceptual searches, clustering, phonetic searches and predictive coding. Our intimate knowledge of how these technologies work gives us an advantage in devising workflows that optimise their use.

Our U.S.-based, state-of-the-art, data analytics centre provides expert resources–computer scientists, statisticians and data analysts–and technology approaches in a secure environment to cull data efficiently and effectively.

Experience Applying Technology to a Variety of Matters

We’ve helped clients use analytics of all varieties on a broad cross-section of matters, from fast-moving second requests to complicated regulatory and internal investigations. And because of the types of matters we serve, we’ve leveraged analytics across the most difficult data types—such as Bloomberg chats or audio files—in mixed language data sets, including Chinese, Japanese and Korean.

Recommended Uses and Workflows, but Tailor-made Approaches

Consilio’s consultants come to the table with ready-made workflows and education about how those workflows will or won’t yield expected results based on the unique aspects of the matter. We regularly spend hours with the case team explaining technologies, the processes and the recommended workflows as we develop an approach to proceed that optimises outcomes and minimises risk. That’s what sets Consilio apart.
