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."

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk, will show how, by focusing on 'metrics that matter,' you can provide objective, transparent, and meaningfu...

Many private cloud projects were built to deliver self-service access to development and test resources. While those clouds delivered faster access to resources, they lacked visibility, control and security needed for production deployments. In their session at 18th Cloud Expo, Steve Anderson, Product Manager at BMC Software, and Rick Lefort, Principal Technical Marketing Consultant at BMC Software, will discuss how a cloud designed for production operations not only helps accelerate developer...

The notion of customer journeys, of course, are central to the digital marketer’s playbook. Clearly, enterprises should focus their digital efforts on such journeys, as they represent customer interactions over time. But making customer journeys the centerpiece of the enterprise architecture, however, leaves more questions than answers. The challenge arises when EAs consider the context of the customer journey in the overall architecture as well as the architectural elements that make up each...

In a crowded world of popular computer languages, platforms and ecosystems, Node.js is one of the hottest. According to w3techs.com, Node.js usage has gone up 241 percent in the last year alone. Retailers have taken notice and are implementing it on many levels. I am going to share the basics of Node.js, and discuss why retailers are using it to reduce page load times and improve server efficiency. I’ll talk about similar developments such as Docker and microservices, and look at several compani...

From the conception of Docker containers to the unfolding microservices revolution we see today, here is a brief history of what I like to call 'containerology'. In 2013, we were solidly in the monolithic application era. I had noticed that a growing amount of effort was going into deploying and configuring applications. As applications had grown in complexity and interdependency over the years, the effort to install and configure them was becoming significant. But the road did not end with a ...

In 2006, Martin Fowler posted his now famous essay on Continuous Integration. Looking back, what seemed revolutionary, radical or just plain crazy is now common, pedestrian and "just what you do." I love it. Back then, building and releasing software was a real pain. Integration was something you did at the end, after code complete, and we didn't know how long it would take. Some people may recall how we, as an industry, spent a massive amount of time integrating code from one team with another...

Admittedly, two years ago I was a bulk contributor to the DevOps noise with conversations rooted in the movement around culture, principles, and goals. And while all of these elements of DevOps environments are important, I’ve found that the biggest challenge now is a lack of understanding as to why DevOps is beneficial. It’s getting the wheels going, or just taking the next step. The best way to start on the road to change is to take a look at the companies that have already made great headway ...

As the software delivery industry continues to evolve and mature, the challenge of managing the growing list of the tools and processes becomes more daunting every day. Today, Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) platforms are proving most valuable by providing the governance, management and coordination for every stage of development, deployment and release. Recently, I spoke with Madison Moore at SD Times about the changing market and where ALM is headed.

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...

The goal of any tech business worth its salt is to provide the best product or service to its clients in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible. This is just as true in the development of software products as it is in other product design services. Microservices, an app architecture style that leans mostly on independent, self-contained programs, are quickly becoming the new norm, so to speak. With this change comes a declining reliance on older SOAs like COBRA, a push toward more s...

Digital means customer preferences and behavior are driving enterprise technology decisions to be sure, but let’s not forget our employees. After all, when we say customer, we mean customer writ large, including partners, supply chain participants, and yes, those salaried denizens whose daily labor forms the cornerstone of the enterprise. While your customers bask in the warm rays of your digital efforts, are your employees toiling away in the dark recesses of your enterprise, pecking data into...

Small teams are more effective. The general agreement is that anything from 5 to 12 is the 'right' small. But of course small teams will also have 'small' throughput - relatively speaking. So if your demand is X and the throughput of a small team is X/10, you probably need 10 teams to meet that demand. But more teams also mean more effort to coordinate and align their efforts in the same direction. So, the challenge is how to harness the power of small teams and yet orchestrate multiples of them...

Much of the discussion around cloud DevOps focuses on the speed with which companies need to get new code into production. This focus is important – because in an increasingly digital marketplace, new code enables new value propositions. New code is also often essential for maintaining competitive parity with market innovators. But new code doesn’t just have to deliver the functionality the business requires. It also has to behave well because the behavior of code in the cloud affects performan...
