Early case assessment (ECA) has traditionally been a critical component of any corporation’s e-discovery workflow. But with data volumes rising and data types becoming increasingly complex, smart teams have begun to leverage the merits of early case assessment for both pre-discovery and e-discovery. The Radiance visual analytics platform will transform your current ECA process via a robust connection framework, a comprehensive data enrichment process, and a library of powerful visualizations which allow teams to quickly narrow and “cull” vast amounts of data during the assessment phase.

Relationship data visualization

More than a simple culling tool, Radiance leverages a comprehensive enrichment process and visual analytics to discover fact patterns, identify key themes and individuals and assess document complexity in advance of a compliance or legal matter.

But more than just a culling tool the Radiance platform offers a powerful search engine, highly faceted browse capabilities and a library of visualizations that can help teams rapidly identify key documents, see communication patters, isolate high-risk or confidential information and inventory collections based on file types, custodians and more. With these capabilities Radiance helps power smarter e-discovery workflows, supports early data and case assessments and creates a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use platform for analysis projects across the enterprise.

The Radiance early case assessment workflow – connect, enrich, analyze and visualize – is a proven recipe for success during pre-discovery analysis and is the quickest path from unknown to known for any-sized collection. With a flexible architecture which can connect directly to a variety of data sources – both behind the firewall and in the cloud, the Radiance platform rapidly transforms critical data from disparate custodians or offices into a single, highly faceted workspace. Here teams can search, browse, explore and analyze data across time, custodians and locations to quickly discover critical themes and documents at the center of any e-discovery matter and quickly determine next steps for the document collection.
