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."

There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, will show how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants will get the download information, scripts, and complete end-to-end walkthrough of the analysis from start to finish. Participants will also be given the pract...
The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, along with new ways to engage with users.
The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries. But a new conversation is emerging - how do companies use industry disruption and technology enablers to lead in markets undergoing change, uncertainty and ambiguity? Organizations of all sizes need to evolve and transform, often under massive pressure, as industry lines blur and merge and traditional business models are assaulted and turned upside down. In this new data-driven world, marketplaces reign supreme while interoperability, APIs and applications deliver un...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
Internet of Things (IoT) will be a hybrid ecosystem of diverse devices and sensors collaborating with operational and enterprise systems to create the next big application. In their session at @ThingsExpo, Bramh Gupta, founder and CEO of, and Fred Yatzeck, principal architect leading product development at, discussed how choosing the right middleware and integration strategy from the get-go will enable IoT solution developers to adapt and grow with the industry, while at the same time reduce Time to Market (TTM) by using plug and play capabilities offered by a robust IoT ...
Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT.
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears. In fact by having standard APIs for IaaS would help PaaS expl...

Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated and cloud solutions through hybrid hosting – a sustainable solution for the data required to manage I...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, will look at different existing uses of peer-to-peer data sharing and how it can become useful in a live session to...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
