Highly Scalable, Visual Analytics Platform Brings Clarity and Meaning to Electronically Stored Information
FTI Consulting, Inc., the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value, today announced the launch of RadianceTM, a new visual analytics software platform that enables organizations to dynamically investigate and understand their enterprise data.
Developed by FTI Consulting’s Technology segment, Radiance is now available either as a cloud-based service or as a rapid deployment mobile option.
“Mission-critical information resides across disparate systems, from legacy applications inside the corporate firewall to third-party cloud software, and this data can make or break an investigation or legal matter,” said Eddie O’Brien, Senior Managing Director in the Technology segment at FTI Consulting and primary inventor of Radiance. “Organizations need an easy-to-use, scalable platform that connects with their data and enables users to iteratively investigate and quickly act upon the information. Radiance delivers against this need with speed and visual analytics that help users rapidly identify key custodians, date ranges and document types during early case assessment (“ECA”) or an investigation to determine the social network, communication pattern and information shared by key custodians.”
According to Gartner’s ‘State of E-discovery in 2015 and Beyond’ report (Jie Zhang, Garth Landers, February 13, 2015), the following business trends are impacting how corporations respond to legal and compliance matters:
Radiance is designed to assist at the intersection of these three organizational needs. Radiance allows organizations to connect, enrich, analyze and visualize millions of documents from these disparate sources in a single, elegantly designed user interface. With a powerful search engine and a library of advanced visualizations – including social networking, communication patterns, concept clustering and timelines – Radiance can aid organizations in a number of common use cases, including investigations, early data assessment and the identification of high-risk data, such as personally identifiable information (“PII”). Radiance provides a natural complement to FTI Consulting’s Ringtail® legal review software, and is delivered in the cloud through the Ringtail Software as a Service (“SaaS”) environment.
Designed for speed and scalability, Radiance is built on NoSQL technology and powered by a flexible workflow to:
“Starting with tens of millions of documents, a Radiance user can zero in on a specific data range, an online interaction among a social network, all materials in a specific language and dozens of other metadata variables – all within seconds,” said JR Jenkins, Senior Director in the Technology segment at FTI Consulting. “This scale gives organizations an incredible amount of control and insight into its data, even as the volume and variety of data grows.”
Development of the Radiance software platform is the latest example of FTI Technology’s innovation within the legal industry. FTI Technology has received numerous honors from the legal and IT industries for software innovation, including selection by The National Law Journal, The Legal Intelligencer, The Recorder and KMWorld, as leaders within e-discovery software and services. FTI Technology was also included in the ‘Leaders’ quadrant of Gartner’s ‘Magic Quadrant for E-Discovery Software’ report (Jie Zhang, Garth Landers, May 18, 2015).
Radiance demonstrations will be available at the Legaltech New York 2016 conference from February 2-4, 2016 in booth 2100.
