Lowenstein Sandler Achieves Breakthrough Adoption of Enterprise Knowledge Management

Recommind Partners With ii3 to Deliver Best-of-Breed Enterprise Search Solution

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/13/12 -- Recommind, the leader in unstructured data management and analysis technology, and ii3, trusted consultants to law firms, today announced that Lowenstein Sandler, an AmLaw 200 firm has chosen Recommind's Decisiv® Search to increase productivity and efficiency for their data management. The initial roll-out has achieved greater than 70 percent user adoption.

With over 500 lawyers and staff in California, New Jersey, and New York, Lowenstein Sandler turned to ii3 when they were looking for an overall evaluation and implementation plan for an enterprise search solution that would seamlessly integrate with existing servers, databases and iManage DMS. After a thorough analysis, the Decisiv Search platform was selected for a pilot program. "Security and usability were two of our top requirements," observed Christopher Zegers, Chief Information Officer, Lowenstein Sandler. "ii3 guided our evaluation and pilot so that we were able to achieve both requirements. Since then, our production roll-out has exceeded our expectations with a user adoption rate of 70 percent in the first month. The Decisiv platform uses and conforms to all existing native security profiles giving us confidence that the federated search is secure. As for usability, most often, we are finding what we need in one search. Concept clustering and intuitive filters yield remarkable precision and recall."

Decisiv Search combines sophisticated enterprise search technology with a simple user interface that helps users quickly and easily find the information they need. Rules-based access enables secure customization of results for each user, giving optimal relevancy in context as well as increased control over the display and ranking of information by administrators.

"Lowenstein Sandler has a highly focused, results-oriented information technology and knowledge management leadership," noted Shy Alter, CEO and Principal of ii3. "We therefore proposed a Decisiv Quick Start implementation plan that was meant to rapidly enhance their knowledge and research services with an enterprise search platform that delivered the specificity, simplicity and speed they demanded to support their superior client service and matter management efficiencies. With enterprise search, relevant results are the name of the game, and Recommind's Decisiv Search delivers in spades -- pretty much out of the box. The immediate outcome is that Lowenstein's attorneys can find relevant documents searched in the firm's very large (and growing) iManage DMS. But this is just the beginning. This early success allows the firm to further leverage Recommind's platform as a highly integrated attorney-centric knowledge management system."

"We wanted an interactive way to introduce Recommind's revolutionary products to our users, and used gamification for the roll-out. The 70 percent adoption rate validates the design, ease of use and power of the search platform," said Kitty Schweyer, Director of Knowledge and Research Services, Lowenstein Sandler. "ii3 delivered the analysis and evaluation we needed to move quickly. Our confidence has been borne out by the high adoption rate and favorable internal reviews."

"ii3 and Recommind share a commitment to innovation and integrity that helps clients realize the results they want to achieve. ii3 has partnered with Recommind for several years to the benefit of our mutual clients," said Tony Caputo, Vice President of Channel Sales at Recommind. "Our industry-leading technology proved to be the best against a demanding list of requirements. The Decisiv product suite provides Lowenstein Sandler professionals with the most comprehensive access to the electronic information that is critical to their success."

Managing mission-critical SAP systems and landscapes has never been easy. Add public cloud with its myriad of powerful cloud native services and this may not change any time soon. Public cloud offers exciting new possibilities for enterprise workloads. But to make use of these possibilities and capabilities, IT teams need to re-think everything they have done before. Otherwise, they will just end up using public cloud as a hosting platform for their workloads, aka known as “lift and shift.”
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
"Tintri focuses on the Ops side of the DevOps, which basically is pushing more and more of the accessibility of the infrastructure to the developers and trying to get behind the scenes," explained Dhiraj Sehgal of Tintri in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
In the decade following his article, cloud computing further cemented Carr’s perspective. Compute, storage, and network resources have become simple utilities, available at the proverbial turn of the faucet. The value they provide is immense, but the cloud playing field is amazingly level. Carr’s quote above presaged the cloud to a T. Today, however, we’re in the digital era. Mark Andreesen’s ‘software is eating the world’ prognostication is coming to pass, as enterprises realize they must be...
Hybrid IT is today’s reality, and while its implementation may seem daunting at times, more and more organizations are migrating to the cloud. In fact, according to SolarWinds 2017 IT Trends Index: Portrait of a Hybrid IT Organization 95 percent of organizations have migrated crucial applications to the cloud in the past year. As such, it’s in every IT professional’s best interest to know what to expect.
A common misconception about the cloud is that one size fits all. Companies expecting to run all of their operations using one cloud solution or service must realize that doing so is akin to forcing the totality of their business functionality into a straightjacket. Unlocking the full potential of the cloud means embracing the multi-cloud future where businesses use their own cloud, and/or clouds from different vendors, to support separate functions or product groups. There is no single cloud so...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Doug Vanderweide, an instructor at Linux Academy, discussed why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers wit...
Companies have always been concerned that traditional enterprise software is slow and complex to install, often disrupting critical and time-sensitive operations during roll-out. With the growing need to integrate new digital technologies into the enterprise to transform business processes, this concern has become even more pressing. A 2016 Panorama Consulting Solutions study revealed that enterprise resource planning (ERP) projects took an average of 21 months to install, with 57 percent of th...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble. Why? Because your data center will not keep up with frenetic pace AWS, Microsoft and Google are rolling out new capabilities. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
New competitors, disruptive technologies, and growing expectations are pushing every business to both adopt and deliver new digital services. This ‘Digital Transformation’ demands rapid delivery and continuous iteration of new competitive services via multiple channels, which in turn demands new service delivery techniques – including DevOps. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit 20th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Co-Chair Andi Mann, panelists examined how DevOps helps to meet the de...
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
"We are a monitoring company. We work with Salesforce, BBC, and quite a few other big logos. We basically provide monitoring for them, structure for their cloud services and we fit into the DevOps world" explained David Gildeh, Co-founder and CEO of Outlyer, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Colocation is a central pillar of modern enterprise infrastructure planning because it provides greater control, insight, and performance than managed platforms. In spite of the inexorable rise of the cloud, most businesses with extensive IT hardware requirements choose to host their infrastructure in colocation data centers. According to a recent IDC survey, more than half of the businesses questioned use colocation services, and the number is even higher among established businesses and busine...
For most organizations, the move to hybrid cloud is now a question of when, not if. Fully 82% of enterprises plan to have a hybrid cloud strategy this year, according to Infoholic Research. The worldwide hybrid cloud computing market is expected to grow about 34% annually over the next five years, reaching $241.13 billion by 2022. Companies are embracing hybrid cloud because of the many advantages it offers compared to relying on a single provider for all of their cloud needs. Hybrid offers bala...

The reality of data ubiquity is here—data is buried in operational statistics, machine logs, stacks of overflowing tickets and customer details, among other things. How can any user get valuable information amid this rapid influx of data? Imagine a situation where your firm’s revenue takes a hit owing to an unexpected failure in some business process. It would be a nightmare for IT admins to sift through the interminable piles of data to deduce exactly why and where the problem occurred. To sav...
