West Palm Beach, Fla., March 14, 2013 — (NYSE: FCN), the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value, today announced that for the third time its FTI Technology practice has been named to KMWorld magazine’s 100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management list. Knowledge management practitioners, theorists, analysts, vendors, customers and colleagues helped select the vendors that exhibited innovation and adaptability.
"Criteria for inclusion vary, but all companies have characteristics in common. Each has either helped to create a market, redefine one or enhance one, and they all share two strengths — the velocity of innovation and the agility to serve their customers," said Hugh McKellar, KMWorld Editor-in-Chief. “FTI Technology continues to demonstrate its leadership in the e-discovery market through new software and service offerings that help clients meet their e-discovery challenges.”
As an example of the company’s continuing innovation, FTI Consulting has launched the following e-discovery offerings over the past six months:

With the addition of the SaaS offering, Ringtail users have a complete spectrum of options for handling e-discovery matters of all sizes, including a do-it-yourself approach using on-premise or SaaS software, a completely outsourced do-it-for-me managed service model, or a Ringtail SaaS model based on the right combination of software and services to meet the client’s specific requirements.
- Predictive Discovery: Combining leading-edge analytics and machine-learning technologies with optimal workflows, Predictive Discovery accelerates the review and production of documents for commercial litigation and regulatory investigations. Predictive Discovery is a complete solution that brings together the software and services required for success with any predictive coding project or task such as prioritizing important data, eliminating irrelevant information and conducting quality control on human reviewers.
