The OrcaTec Document Decisioning Suite™
Computer-Assisted Review (CAR) + Advanced Analytics + Review
OrcaTec’s technology is designed to work together to reduce the massive electronic information you have to the important information you need.
All of our tools are built to help you understand what your documents mean. It’s not just document review – it’s trial strategy.
The predictive coding used in the Global Aerospace case is incredibly easy to use. Rather than requiring hours or days of effort to build a seed set, OrcaPredict randomly chooses documents and presents them for Decisioning. Using OrcaPredict means avoiding both the bias of pre-building a seed set and the time and effort spent negotiating over how that seed set is to be constructed. One “expert,” knowledgeable about the subject matter, is all that is required.
OrcaPredict provides the expert with groups of completely random sample documents that are representative of the entire document set. The expert simply codes each document as responsive or non-responsive. As the expert codes, the system learns which documents the expert is going to approve or disapprove. OrcaPredict does the rest, finding all and only the responsive documents with unmatched accuracy and specificity.
From your decisions, OrcaPredict generates a model of the language used in responsive and in non-responsive documents. It then uses these models to determine whether additional documents are more like the responsive or more like the non-responsive documents that you judged. The result is a short timeframe for achieving very high levels of Recall (completeness) and Precision (specificity) — levels that are difficult to achieve with any other approach.
The patent-pending technology underlying the OrcaTec Document Decisioning Suite™ is language modeling. The system learns from each collection, in any language, how words are used in that collection. Because the meaning of a word is based on how it used OrcaTec language modeling easily separates out the word “court” in a sentence involving basketball from the “court” in which “attorney” or “case” is nearby. Everything in OrcaTec is based on context.
Concept Search, based on this language modeling technology, helps to identify the most representative documents about a concept and to identify additional documents about the concept, even if those documents do not contain the keyword that was searched for. Finding the names of all the Enron shell corporations when you know the name of only one is an example of how concept search helps you understand your data.
But OrcaSearch is more than concept search. There are more than 25 other types of search that OrcaTec can perform on huge data silos. See a summary
of that list.
OrcaTec uses the same language model as in concept search to automatically build visual document clusters. Clusters are groupings of similar documents. Some of these clusters represent responsive ESI and some contain nonresponsive ESI. With one click, a whole group of documents can be marked for further review (in) or marked to be sequestered (out).
Unlike most systems, however, the same document can appear in more than one cluster. An email that is about two things won’t be thrown out, just because one of its topics is deemed to be uninteresting. OrcaClustering technology helps insure that you won’t throw out the baby with the bathwater (or the offshore account information with the football pool), while effectively identifying responsive documents.
Once you have completed your document decisioning and culling, you don’t have to export from OrcaTec to do review. Continue to employ the powerful analytic technology of OrcaSearch and OrcaPredict while you review documents with OrcaReview.
Organize your data by putting documents into concept-based clusters or based on any kind of search results. Bulk tag documents based on search results. Use Express tags to indicate the most important issues in the case. View near duplicates, hyperduplicates, and family members all in one easy-to-use interface. Redact, create privilege logs, and use all the review tools you’re used to without leaving OrcaTec. OrcaReview provides the power of the entire Document Decisioning Suite when you need it and the simplicity of rapidly and easily reviewing documents when you don't.
