LexisNexis Announces Major Release of Concordance Evolution

LexisNexis Legal & Professional announced a major new release of Concordance Evolution, the next generation of the company’s fully installed enterprise review software product for electronic discovery and litigation document management. The new release is completely web-enabled, allowing for efficient implementation and deployment.

Developed in collaboration with various litigation professionals during extensive testing, Concordance Evolution helps law firms, government agencies, litigation service bureaus, and application service providers reduce their overall e-discovery costs and boost their litigation workflow productivity, while managing the largest and most complex cases.

This next generation of Concordance Evolution delivers the following:

  • Speed—Concordance Evolution combines professional insight on relevant language, keywords and terms of art, with the speed of advanced search technology to deliver fast searching, review, and more. In real-world testing, the software imported load files of 350 GB (about 7n million documents) within 24 hours, enabled document-to-document browsing within 1 to 2 seconds, tagged 3,000 documents per minute, returned results on complex searches within 4 seconds and produced 5 million pages of discoverable documents per 24-hour time periods.
  • Capacity—With the flexible administrative tools in Concordance Evolution, users can adapt the capacity of the software to their needs, whether it’s to manage a small case or a large, complex litigation matter. This is made possible by a scalable Microsoft SQL backend database that keeps data in one place, improves data integrity, and supports large-scale, multiparty document review. The new version of the platform also allows users to run multiple imports, exports, and production actions at once, automate and schedule jobs, and distribute processing across multiple servers, providing tremendous scalability.
  • Ease of Use—Concordance Evolution features optimized workflows that save hours of time, enabling review of more data sooner than with processes required by competitive products. Specifically, users can easily conduct queries, browse and tag documents, view production sets, and conduct bulk reviews. A unique “Dual View” design allows users to obtain two different types of views simultaneously on a split screen in a single browser. Other user-friendly features include sortable fields, email threading, near-native highlighting, and shortcut keys. Intuitive workflows such as these also reduce the need for extensive user training and retraining.

Initially launched in 2011, Concordance Evolution is built on an Open API architecture, which enables different websites to interact with each other for greater interoperability or closer integration. The software is also scalable to the user’s needs and features centralized user administration, native file review, integrated processing and production, concept searching, and clustering. It is available with a base cost for the software application and then a per-seat licensing fee. In addition to the fully installed version, Concordance Evolution is also available from LexisNexis in a fully-hosted environment.
