The NZ E-Discovery Blog  Facilitating proportionate and efficient e-discovery

Preview of the Technology Demonstration Stream

March 5th, 2015

We are now less than two weeks away from the New Zealand Law and Technology Conference, taking place at the Pullman Hotel in Auckland on the 18th of March 2015.

As mentioned in my earlier posts, the event has been expanded this year to provide delegates with three streams with an exciting line-up of speakers. This week I have provided an insight into the Legal and eDiscovery Stream and the Legal Technology Stream, today I intend to provide some further detail about our third track – the Technology Demonstration & Case Studies Stream.

To widen the appeal of the conference, we have established a third Technology Demonstration & Case Studies track, where leading software and service providers will showcase their technology and provide leading case studies. This track will be suited to lawyers, practice managers and all legal support professionals. The track has been designed to enable delegates to see the software themselves, whilst also hearing about case studies involving law firms in how the technology has been used to improve the efficiency and productivity of lawyers and the law firms.

Technology Demonstration & Case Studies Stream

With how to deploy technology being a key consideration for any law firm, the stream commences with a look at information management in the digital age. Greg Quirk from Konica Minolta will present a case study exploring the evolution of technology in New Zealand law firms.  In this session, Greg will speak to a local law firm who has started the shift to a completely digital environment, and discuss the challenges and benefits they have found in this transition.

Information in today’s digital age is fast moving. It is no longer bound to a single person or a department and is mobile. With the sheer volumes of documents and devices from which information can be consumed, documents and workflow processes can quickly turn into a state of disarray if not managed properly. James Kenney and Damian Jeal from Nikec Solutions will present a session on The modern law firm: Managing information in the digital age. They look at how to ensure that your files are organised, viewed and shared in the most efficient way while increasing collaboration, client engagement and knowledge sharing?

In today’s digital world it is estimated that 20% of documents are invisible to search technology. The task of retrieving and converting these image-based documents can be arduous, complex and expensive. DocsCorp APAC Sales Manager Azan Iwasaki will look at When business-critical documents go missing, who are you going to call? The session will showcase how contentCrawler can save you time and money searching for business-critical documents.

For any legal department, the true goal for conducting e-discovery is finding the facts of the matter, whether detecting fraudulent activity, determining whether or how to dispose of a matter and planning case strategy in the event of a lawsuit. But with ever-increasing data volumes, the traditional ‘standard review’ way is becoming more expensive and time consuming. Scott Gillard, Director at FTI Consulting will present Finding Facts Fast – A How To Guide for Smarter eDiscovery. Scott will draw on his many years’ experience of being one of the industry’s leading eDiscovery experts. Scott will explore better ways to tackle the problem of finding facts quickly, without relying on going through the ‘standard review’ motions of the entire e-discovery process. The session will demonstrate how cutting-edge teams are forging new ground and finding facts quickly through the use of advanced analytics and expert workflow.
