kCura acquires Text Analytics suite

kCura, developers of the e-discovery software Relativity, has acquired Content Analyst Company LLC, developers of the CAAT analytics engine.

The analytics engine has been fully integrated into Relativity Analytics for eight years, and more than 70 percent of current kCura customers have licensed analytics.

With further court acceptance of the technology in the US and abroad, as with the use of Relativity Analytics in the UK's recent Pyrrho decision, growth in Analytics is expected to continue for the foreseeable future.

The analytics engine can be applied to a variety of tasks, from organizing unstructured data to email threading to categorisation that powers flexible technology-assisted review workflows.

"In the future, we believe all ediscovery matters will use some form of text analytics because of the advantages it provides at every stage of the process," said Andrew Sieja, president and CEO of kCura.

"We believe we can accelerate adoption for our customers by bringing Content Analyst onto the team. By aligning our technology roadmaps and organizations, our users' feedback on Analytics can get into the engine right away."

"We believe CAAT offers the most precise analytics engine on the market and a powerful breadth of functionality," said Kurt Michel, president and CEO of Content Analyst, who will continue to lead support, service, and all operations in Reston supporting development of the CAAT engine.

"By joining the team at kCura, we now have a singular focus of making the use of this technology ubiquitous in ediscovery, and we believe we can do an even better job than we've been doing meeting the needs of the ediscovery community."
