Global News

Relativity logoRelativity, a global legal and compliance technology company, today announced at Relativity Fest London that it is opening two new datacentres in Europe in Q3 2020 as it invests in expanding RelativityOne and Relativity Trace in EMEA.

The new datacentres in Germany and Switzerland bring Relativity up to a total of 10 datacentres across nine countries.  

“EMEA is currently Relativity’s fastest growing region at scale and we are making significant investments across the business to ensure all of our global customers have the resources they need,” said Mike Gamson, Chief Executive Officer at Relativity. “Opening these new datacentres and making investments in security, operations, and product development—like Aero UI—reinforces our commitment to expanding globally and that we truly value our EMEA customers and partners.”  


Relativity Fest London is taking place from 12-14 May virtually where industry experts from Relativity and the Relativity community will host panels discussing key insights on e-discovery, proactive compliance and surveillance, and operating during a global pandemic. The full agenda is available here.  

Navigating a Period of Uncertainty 

Over the last two months, Relativity has delivered resources like free trainings and certifications, webinars and tips on security, and a new on-demand Learning from Home series. Additionally, in response to customer demand, Relativity recently became HIPAA compliant. At the event, Relativity will host the following sessions focusing on COVID-19: 

  • Navigating Through Uncertain Times in e-Discovery – Challenges and Opportunities, 12 May at 2:10 p.m. BST 
  • From Reaction to Recovery: Helping Corporations Accelerate COVID-19 Relief, 13 May at 2:05 p.m. BST 
  • Maximise Cybersecurity at Home, on-demand 

Aero UI to Launch in August 2020  

RelativityOne’s Aero UI is set to launch for all RelativityOne customers this August. With 150 new product enhancements, Aero UI has navigation speeds that are 30x faster, sub-second doc-to-doc speeds, a next-generation viewer supporting a wide variety of data types, like short message data, improved workflow-based navigation, automation, and greater API coverage. Relativity is investing in an enhanced user experience to help the e-discovery community be more productive and apply its expertise toward discovering the truth and acting on it.  

As of today, five RelativityOne customers have upgraded to Aero UI as a part of the Aero UI Advance Access Program and are using the new UI for all of their workloads.   

“As an in-house organization, we staff very leanly, which means we wear many hats. Some of us are in Relativity on a daily basis, but others are not,” said Joe Obermaier, e-Discovery Information Governance Lead at Broadcom. “One thing that is attractive about Aero is that the intuitive interface has a simplified, easier-to-understand look. Users can jump in and get right to review in the product.”

New Global Partnerships Arriving with RelativityOne 

With the recent growth of RelativityOne, Relativity continues to develop and grow its partnerships with global service providers. During the keynote, Gamson spoke with KPMG’s Paul Tombleson, Global Forensic Technology Lead, and Aileen Chan, Managing Director, Forensic Practice, about how the firm most recently utilised RelativityOne to support clients.  

“Increasingly complex investigative and litigation requests require a new, more flexible approach to e-discovery,” said Tombleson. “The scalability of RelativityOne’s cloud-based offering combined with KPMG’s unique e-discovery expertise, will help us drive even greater efficiency, and value for our global clients.” 

Relativity Trace Continues to Grow and Transcend Borders 

As RelativityOne gains ground throughout EMEA, Relativity Trace, a proactive communication surveillance application, is doing the same. The team working on Relativity Trace has grown from four people in 2018 to more than 30 in 2020, with colleagues across EMEA and the U.S.  

“We’ve made tremendous strides with Relativity Trace that have enabled us to grow our team and our presence in Europe. This growth has been key to helping us create a Relativity Trace compatible App Hub as well as develop more than 18 out-of-the-box policies that are readily available for our global customers,” said Jordan Domash, General Manager of Relativity Trace. “We look forward to continuing our work with financial institutions and corporate compliance teams in Europe and around the world to ensure they have the best communication surveillance technology at their fingertips.”
