Hanzo’s groundbreaking Relativity App Hub integration brings the ability to review dynamic web content within Relativity’s cloud-based ediscovery platform.

Hanzo, a pioneer of contextual collection of dynamic web content and a developer partner of Relativity, today announced Hanzo Dynamic Review™ for RelativityOne, a software application that is fully compatible with RelativityOne, the cloud version of Relativity’s ediscovery platform, in addition to Relativity versions 9.6 and 9.5.

 

In 2018, Hanzo and Relativity formed their strategic partnership which brought Hanzo into the Relativity App Hub ecosystem. Since then, Hanzo and Relativity’s development teams have built upon that foundation with a groundbreaking integration that is the first to bring dynamic native review capabilities to Relativity. (Or Click on image below to see video) Today’s announcement extends that capability fully to RelativityOne.

2018-Hanzo_Dynamic_Review_for_Relativity

Hanzo Dynamic Review, part of the Hanzo Dynamic Archive suite, improves the review process by adding easy native-content import and dynamic native review capabilities, within Relativity’s on-premise and cloud review platforms. By achieving compatibility with RelativityOne, Hanzo provides ediscovery teams access to hard-to-capture modern data sources and extends a dynamic review solution to help ediscovery professionals uncover evidence that might otherwise be missed with static document review. These natural navigation capabilities moving from one document or section to the next at the click of a link are available in a secure, performant, and accessible environment that improve review efficiency and effectiveness.

 

“As business communications fragment across platforms and data volumes grow, Hanzo is helping solve the challenge of following, capturing, and preserving dynamic conversations,” said Kevin Gibson, CEO of Hanzo. “Our partnership with Relativity brings game-changing innovation to review by making it possible to view dynamic web content directly from RelativityOne, while uncovering evidence that is often hidden in static formats, which delivers a whole new level of efficiency and effectiveness.”

 

RelativityOne is the secure and performant way experts run ediscovery in the cloud. It’s backed by the functionality, customer support, and global user community that enables users to do it all with one solution. With easy to use search, analytics, and visualizations, RelativityOne’s trusted platform delivers intelligence about data, so users gain insights sooner and drive more effective outcomes. Integrations and products from partners like Hanzo are found in the Relativity App Hub, where users can pick and choose solutions to solve data challenges in ediscovery or beyond.

 

“We’re thrilled that Hanzo has now integrated their Dynamic Review tools with RelativityOne,” said Drew Deitch, Director of Strategic Partnerships at Relativity.  “Hanzo’s robust review for data sources such as SharePoint, Jira, Facebook, and other dynamic web content, combined with the flexibility of our SaaS product, will ensure that users are able to comprehend and take action on their data sources – faster.”

Hanzo supports the current RelativityOne release as well as Relativity versions 9.5 and 9.6 and will continue to provide customers with the best possible service and support with all future releases.

“DISCO provides cutting-edge software, giving clients a compelling commercial solution for data-heavy litigation. It helps us deliver comprehensive advice early in the life of a complex dispute, while reducing upfront costs and overall legal spend.” said Kennedys’ Partner Michael Hogg.

A cloud-based solution, DISCO requires zero up-front capital investment in hardware or infrastructure; reduces recurring costs related to staffing, training, and maintenance; instantly offers new features when available; eliminates downtime caused by system outages and never-ending upgrades; and is accessible anywhere, anytime from any device.

“DISCO has served global clients on multinational matters since our founding, and our world-wide customer base continues to expand in recognition of our experience,” said Andrew Shimek, DISCO chief revenue officer. “Our commitment to the European market enables us to work even more closely with firms like Kennedys, delivering both the technology and the local expertise to help them shift to the cloud and improve their discovery processes.”

Last week, DISCO announced an $83 million investment led by Georgian Partners, a Toronto-based venture-capital firm with deep expertise in applied artificial intelligence.

DISCO has raised $135 million, more than any other enterprise legaltech company. This investment reflects the market’s consolidation behind DISCO as the leading cloud ediscovery platform, and the growing customer consensus that cloud ediscovery will replace legacy ediscovery services vendors and software providers.

The scale of this investment reflects investors’ belief that ediscovery is just the beginning: that legal technology will impact the entire $437 billion legal market. DISCO will use this investment to accelerate its growth in the $12.5 billion ediscovery market — and to bring its unique combination of world-class engineering and legal expertise to building products that transform other areas of legal practice.

“DISCO’s mission is to create technology to modernize the practice of law,” said DISCO founder and CEO Kiwi Camara. “Great legal technology helps great lawyers and legal teams deliver better legal outcomes for their clients. We do this in ediscovery today; over time, we will do this in all areas of legal practice.”

“Artificial intelligence is poised to transform the legal industry. As a trusted partner to hundreds of enterprise clients, DISCO is ahead of the curve in securely applying artificial intelligence,” said Tyson Baber, Partner at Georgian Partners. “We are excited to help DISCO accelerate as they drive the speed of innovation in this industry and find better ways to serve legal professionals around the world.”

In addition to rapidly scaling up U.S. operations, DISCO will use this investment to continue aggressive international growth. DISCO opened its London office in October 2018 and plans to establish offices in Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Latin America over the next several years, both to serve local markets and to better serve its existing multinational clientele.
