Office 365 integration aids cloud-based ediscovery

Recommind has integrated Microsoft Office 365 into the newest version of Axcelerate, its cloud-based ediscovery platform. The collaboration streamlines discovery by enabling joint customers to easily and effectively cull data in the Office 365 environment before exporting it into Axcelerate for total visibility into discovery strategies.

Recommind's Office 365 integration allows organisations to automatically export enriched data stored in Microsoft Azure into its latest offering, Axcelerate Cloud, a subscription-based SaaS eDiscovery product capable of supporting more than a billion records in a single deployment.

"Historically, ediscovery has been cumbersome and inefficient, requiring IT to stitch together multiple technologies for each stage of the discovery process. Now with the emergence of SaaS environments, we've entered the third generation of ediscovery: ediscovery in the cloud," said Jerome Levadoux, SVP, Product Management and Marketing, Recommind.

"Recommind's integration with Office 365 speeds up discovery in the cloud and provides our joint customers with powerful technology that drives faster insights for informed decision-making."

According to Recommind's 2015 Corporate Legal Survey, cloud-based discovery is rapidly growing within the legal industry, as 68 percent of respondents reported they're using at least one cloud solution and 84 percent stating they're open to implementing additional cloud solutions. Recommind's Office 365 integration supports this growing demand for flexible, secure cloud-based eDiscovery tools that optimize the discovery process. Key benefits include:

  • Enhanced security through centralized hosting in a virtual private cloud
  • Total visibility into discovery strategies with sophisticated metrics and controls
  • Greater scalability with data volumes and nothing to install or maintain
  • More predictability over costs with the elimination of infrastructure purchases
  • Enriched, culled data stored in Microsoft Azure with single export per document capabilities to remove duplicates
  • Fully preserved chain of custody (CoC)
