Three things you’ll learn about eDiscovery at OpenText Enterprise World

The Discovery track at Enterprise World features foremost legal experts discussing data challenges and solutions

Last year’s Enterprise World was so much fun we decided to do it again. The OpenText™ Discovery team is returning to Toronto in July for a week of engaging sessions, interactive demos and networking events. This is a once-in-a-year opportunity to learn from and engage with the world’s top legal talent. OpenText Discovery clients have worked on the cases that make headlines, and while the details may be privileged, they are ready to share their experiences, best practices and answer your burning questions.

Have you ever wondered why your legal team asks you to preserve data in a particular way? Or what happens to the records you collect and send to outside counsel? Do you want to know about the tools lawyers use to investigate malfeasance? Wondering if you have the right technology and deployment model? We’re answering all those questions and more at Enterprise World. Here are just 3 of the many things you’ll learn:

1. You’ll learn how to talk to your lawyers about data

I’m a lawyer and I get that we aren’t necessarily your favorite people to talk to. We use a lot of Latin and usually say things like “It depends.” But you shouldn’t be afraid of your legal team’s next email. The data professionals that attend Enterprise World are often on the front lines of placing legal holds, collecting data from content management systems and advising their legal teams on the feasibility of transferring terabytes of sensitive information across borders on a Friday afternoon.

Back by popular demand, “How to talk to your lawyers about data” features a stellar lineup of lawyers and litigation support managers from the world’s top law firms. These experts will walk you through the eDiscovery process and answer your questions about handling data. If you are responsible for ECM applications, InfoGov initiatives or compliance programs this is a must-attend session. It’s so important that we’ve expanded it into two full sessions this year.

2. You’ll learn how to conduct an email investigation, with help from Hillary Clinton

The vast majority of litigation data these days resides in email. And we’re tired of using Enron data to illustrate eDiscovery workflows and tools. The Enron emails are old enough to vote; some are old enough to drink. Enron is ancient news. That’s why we processed and loaded thousands of Hillary Clinton’s FOIA-released emails into OpenText™ Axcelerate™ for analysis. Do you even need to ask if the data is interesting? It is.

We’ll host multiple variations and instances of this session throughout Enterprise World and each one will walk you through an investigation story, soup-to-nuts. We’ll use the best eDiscovery software to visualize email communication patterns, find personal data, and chase down leads. We’ll use unsupervised machine learning to automatically categorize thousands of emails and explore them thematically. On top of that, we’ll use predictive coding to train the computer to actively go out and find hot documents.

Naturally, this session will be popular with internal investigators, auditors, compliance and anyone who supports those functions. But if you use email, don’t you want to know what kinds of tools government regulators have at their disposal to investigate your data?

3. You’ll learn why lawyers are adopting AI faster than you

Do you think of yourself as a disruptor or innovator? I bet you didn’t think your legal team was ahead of the curve. We’ve been pioneering machine learning for lawyers for over a decade and we’re putting our tech-savvy clients in front of microphones to walk you through use cases and frequent issues.

Think you need a ton of data to train machine learning? We’ll show you how to use machine learning flexibly, every time, even on small datasets. Think you need complicated protocols or extensive approvals? We’ll show you the case law and arguments that say otherwise.

If you are responsible for technology innovation inside of your organization or support any legal functions, you’ll want to attend this session to learn about the latest AI legal technology.
