CHICAGO, Dec. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- kCura, developers of the e-discovery software Relativity, today announced Relativity 9.3. This latest version of the software introduces 115 new features, including a reimagined interface that provides benefits such as:  

  • Easier data analysis. Create widgets with pivot charts and tables from any field of metadata or coding information to see at a glance where different types of information intersect.
  • Custom dashboards. Drag and drop widgets and document lists to anywhere on the page, and save your work as a dashboard for easy access to whatever you need, such as updates on case progress or a quick view of trends in your data.
  • A new way to search. Visually organize search conditions on an interactive panel, quickly adding criteria and toggling conditions on and off to see the impact on results in real time.

In October, kCura announced Relativity 9.3 to more than 1,500 attendees at Relativity Fest, their annual e-discovery conference.

"Relativity 9.3's new search and data visualization features are huge for our users and project managers," said Emily Rugg, senior project manager at Kilpatrick Townsend LLP. "Our attorneys' and paralegals' technical abilities run the gamut, but being able to drag and drop and visually arrange search conditions will allow them to write complicated saved searches, regardless of technical ability, and find what they need faster."

In addition to the reimagined interface, Relativity 9.3 includes enhancements to strengthen the entire e-discovery stack, such as:

  • Greater performance and productivity in Relativity Processing, including support for E01 files and de-duplication capabilities that are 3.6 times faster than before.
  • Tighter integration between Processing and Data Grid, Relativity's NoSQL data store, so you can move raw data to review faster. In testing, kCura collected and processed 118 GBs of raw data into review in under 1.5 hours.
  • Storage for massive volumes of data per case in Data Grid, as well as immediate search capabilities while data is loading.
  • A revamped production model that addresses the top-requested features from Relativity customers and automates complex productions. Productions that used to take approximately 40 minutes to set up and run now take 5 minutes.
  • More flexibility for developers via publicly available APIs for data query and analysis, search construction, and processing.

"The end-to-end capabilities in Relativity 9.3 have the potential to be astoundingly disruptive to the market," said Bennett Borden, chief data scientist at Drinker Biddle & Reath. "The ability for a legalist to collect, process, and interpret data in a matter of minutes is simply incomparable, and the new data analysis capabilities give you a distinct advantage in developing a narrative from your data."

"We wanted to evolve the way our customers see and interact with their data from end to end," said Andrew Sieja, president and CEO of kCura. "We're excited that Relativity 9.3 has shaped up to be a powerful data analysis platform that will allow them to visualize and interact with their growing data sets to make smarter decisions."
