Above the Law Highlights a Conversation with CloudNine’s Brad Jenkins

Extract from Above the Law article by Zach Abramowitz

Today, I’m chatting with CloudNine’s CEO Brad Jenkins to find out more about his company’s story, their approach to the cloud and the future of the ediscovery space.

Zach Abramowitz: Brad, thanks for joining me, tell me a bit of the background behind your company. When did you decide to pivot into software?

Brad Jenkins: Great question and, like most software companies, we had both a tactical reason and a strategic reason for deciding to invest in building our software solution.

The tactical catalyst for our development was simply a 10,000 box scan project where the client asked us how they could best manage their data once it was digitized. From that request, we began developing a custom solution to solve a specific customer problem, and that launched us down the road of software development.

From a strategic perspective, as a litigation services and support company founded in 2002, we certainly were aware of the print-to-digital and digital-to-discovery challenges and opportunities presented to providers over the last decade. Initially, we helped clients address eDiscovery challenges by aggregating best-of-breed technology and supporting that technology with a strong portfolio of professional services. Over time, we became highly aware of the strengths and weaknesses of the leading software platforms and began to develop our technology to address the core needs expressed daily by our customers. Those needs being speed, simplicity, and security. Addressing those underserved needs, we launched our initial software platform which has evolved into our SaaS-delivered CloudNine Simplified eDiscovery Automation platform.

Market Guide for E-Discovery Solutions: Mention of CloudNine By Gartner

Extract of report from Gartner Research

Authored by industry analyst Jie Zhang, and available for purchase from the Gartner website ($1,295.00), the new Market Guide for E-Discovery Solutions report provides information technology leaders and legal counsel considerations for the evaluation and selection of eDiscovery solutions. One of the areas highlighted in the report was eDiscovery Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions.

Considerations for eDiscovery SaaS included:

  • Cloud e-discovery solutions are gaining momentum in the market with their ease of use, and more competitive and straightforward pricing structures.

  • When selecting the SaaS provider, it is important to understand their data center locations, among other things.

CloudNine was mentioned as a representative software provider in the Market Guide for E-Discovery Solutions. Key elements of CloudNine’s offering include:

  • SaaS Deployment Model
  • Processing, Analytics, Review, and Production
  • Private Cloud
  • Self-Service
  • Task and Process Automation (Fully Integrated)

InsideCounsel Highlights 3 Reasons eDiscovery Companies Need Better Search Solutions

Extract from InsideCounsel article by Amanda Ciccatelli

With the amount of data being captured and stored by organizations doubling every 1.2 years, the ability to quickly and effectively search through data stores that are growing exponentially has become more important than ever to meet discovery obligations within reasonable costs.

There are three key reasons that law firms and e-discovery companies need better search solutions, according to [Doug] Austin [of CloudNine]. First, the ability to identify potentially relevant information in litigation quickly is key to determining the best course of action to proceeding in the case, and effective search is an important component to accomplishing that goal. Second, failure to preserve or produce clearly responsive electronically stored information (ESI) in litigation can lead to sanctions by the court.  And third, in a recent survey, budgetary constraints was identified as the factor to have the most impact on e-discovery business over the next six months, so search solutions help manage and control discovery costs to help litigants stay within reasonable budgets.

Austin shared three ways to address these issue including: Emphasize up-front information governance efforts to keep data volumes manageable and also identify all potential sources of data through an organization data map; emphasize automation of repeatable tasks within the discovery life cycle and select providers who can support that automation effort and help the organization reduce costs through reduction of personnel; and require their providers to offer predictable pricing models so that they can accurately estimate costs.

CloudNine Announces Free 30-Day eDiscovery Automation Software Trial

Free Trial Helps eDiscovery Practitioners, Partners, and Enthusiasts Explore eDiscovery Automation With No Risk

CloudNine, the eDiscovery Company that empowers legal and business professionals with eDiscovery automation software and professional services that simplify litigation, investigations, and audits, today announced a no risk, free 30-day trial of its eDiscovery automation software. The free trial provides participants free access to a full version of the software at no charge and is designed to help eDiscovery practitioners, partners, and enthusiasts explore and evaluate how simplified eDiscovery technology can add value to their eDiscovery efforts.

“The growing amount of electronic data to be considered in litigation coupled with continuing law firm and corporation budgetary constraints, makes automation increasingly important to eDiscovery professionals,” commented Brad Jenkins, CEO of CloudNine. “With the 30-day free trial offer of our software, a no risk offer with no credit card requirement, users can register online and immediately begin to upload, review, and produce electronic documents directly from their workstation. This offer helps users explore how eDiscovery automation can complement their current eDiscovery tool sets and workflows as well as serve as a complete platform for all eDiscovery tasks.”

CloudNine delivers a secure, web-accessible, SaaS-delivered eDiscovery platform that allows clients to immediately upload, review, and produce electronic documents from one place within minutes. Typical use cases for CloudNine include:

  • Litigation (Law Firms, Legal Departments)
  • Investigations (Compliance, Finance, Human Resources, IT, Legal)
  • Audits (Compliance, Finance, Human Resources)

Reviews on CloudNine from online software review sites including Capterra and G2 Crowd highlight the balance of speed, simplicity, and security provided by the fourth-generation eDiscovery automation technology.

“CloudNine routinely impresses me with their superior customer service and automated tools that just work. We regularly upload a lot of data to CloudNine’s automated hosting and discovery tool,” noted Ryan Mason, Cyber Incident Response Analyst at National Oilwell Varco.

“When I need something that can easily be shared with outside counsel, reviewed by multiple people simultaneously, and provide a fast, reliable output, with fairly robust searching, this is my go-to product,” said Brian Carter, Senior Counsel at Tetra Pak Inc.

“Their review platform, CloudNine, is robust, easy to use and ideal for a firm like ours where we don’t have to buy and support the software,” shared Katherine Gonyea, Senior Associate at Dow Golub Remels & Beverly, LLP.

“CloudNine’s best feature is its straightforward ease of use. I co-taught a class on e-discovery at a local law school. We were able to get a class of 20 law students up and running and doing document review in less than 10 minutes. They were able to figure out how the software worked that easily. Plus, the drill down into the data production was impressive. For a small firm or solo, it just makes sense to go with a cloud-based SaaS, and CloudNine is the best of its breed,” noted Suzanne Meehle, Attorney at Meehle Law.

Additionally, CloudNine augments its automation software with a complete portfolio of professionals services ranging from discovery consulting and computer forensics to managed review and technology-assisted review.
