Relativity Analytics

As you might expect from the world’s #1 eDiscovery platform, kCura’s Relativity comes fully loaded with cutting-edge analytic tools to drastically improve your discovery workflow.

Work Smarter, Go Faster

From the moment we flip the switch on the Relativity Analytics engine, you’ll see how the power of Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) brings a world of information to your fingertips. With these groundbreaking tools at your disposal, it’s easier than ever to allocate and understand massive amounts of data.

  • Email Threading: Determine the relationship between email messages and identify the most content-inclusive messages to avoid redundant review.

  • Near-duplicate Identification: Identify records that are textually similar to expedite the review process.

  • Data Clustering: Group conceptually similar documents together for effective batching and improved consistency.

  • Concept Searching: Search documents without the restrictions of knowing specific keywords; concept searching is truly a freeform approach to drilling down on your data.

  • Document Categorization: Define custom categories that conceptually relate a universe of documents based on preliminary user input from a sample set.

  • Language Identification: Automatically identify the documents in your data set that contain text from the following languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish.

  • Relativity Assisted Review: Relativity leverages the same LSI engine used for data analytics to power a built-in Predictive Coding workflow. Click on the Predictive Coding button to learn more.

Relativity with Brainspace is a software application that specializes in data analytics...

with a particular focus on visualizing large, complex data sets associated with eDiscovery. They compete with two other major software companies: Content Analyst (the default technology used by Relativity Analytics) and Equivio. Brainspace is not a replacement for Relativity – it’s an enhancement.

Why do we love Brainspace?We prefer Brainspace for two reasons. (1) It costs less. (2) We think that the user interface is better at communicating document clusters and relationships – a key feature for organizing documents prior to (or during) review.

What does Brainspace do? What does it NOT do?Analytics software packages, including Brainspace, basically do five things, Brainspace currently does the first four and they are working on the fifth.

1. Concept Clusters - Documents are analyzed based on their text and complex algorithms group documents together based on their conceptual similarity. Even though the words within the document may be different, documents will still be grouped together if they are conceptually similar.

2. Concept Search - Although this is not “technically” how it works, I prefer to think of concept search like this: I provide some text – maybe a word, maybe a paragraph – and the application pretends that that text is an actual document, places that fake document in the index, and looks for nearby documents. The results of a concept search will be conceptually related to the text you submit.

3. Near Dupe – Deduplication removes documents that are 100% duplicative, but what happens when its only 99% similar? Near Dupe (ND) detection will identify documents that have the mostly the same words and group them together. One document will be elected as the “pivot” document of the group and the others in the group will be compared to it.

4. Email Threading – Also known as Conversation Threading, this piece of the technology will identify emails that belong to the same thread. In addition to finding documents that belong to the same thread, Brainspace will also identify duplicative emails that can be suppressed during review.

5. Assisted Review (Not included with Brainspace) – (Also known as Predictive Coding) Assisted Review is the process of applying algorithms to human-based coding decisions in order to “predict” the coding decisions for other documents. Reviewers will code a sample group of documents and submit them to the analytics tool, then the tool will attempt to predict the coding for the remaining documents.

How much does Brainspace cost?Clustering, Concept Search, Near Dupe and Email Threading are included free of charge for all Relativity Workspaces hosted with Oasis. Assisted Review is powered by Relativity Analytics (not Brainspace), and is billed based on the size of the data (per GB).


Equivio is quickly emerging as a leader in the data analytics industry.

Designed specifically for eDiscovery solutions, Equivio’s Zoom platform leverages the tested and proven Support Vector Machine (SVM) engine to provide language-agnostic analysis of text-based data. Don’t Get Lost in the Interface Equivio Zoom was built with one person in mind: you. With a friendly interface and simple workflow, Zoom allows anyone to dive-in and get results. Never be intimidated by your data again. What’s in the Toolbox

  • Near-Duplicates: Identify and group similar records, and highlight the subtle differences for a quicker review.

  • Themes: Equivio’s latest addition to the Zoom toolbox, Themes allows users to quickly learn vital information about large amounts of data.

  • Email Threads: Determine the relationship between email messages and identify the most content-inclusive messages to avoid redundant review.

  • Batching: Keep together documents with like themes, email threads, and near-duplicates to maximize your review efficiency.

  • Language Identification: Automatically identify the primary language on all documents in your data set. Utilizes Rosette by Basis to support over 55 languages.

  • Relevance: Equivio leverages the same SVM engine used for Zoom analytics to power its Predictive Coding software. Click on the Predictive Coding button to learn more.
