Prepare for an onslaught of legal technology announcements, as ILTACON 19, the massive annual conference of the International Legal Technology Association, is set to begin Sunday in Orlando.

First up: CloudNine, which today is announcing new versions, features and performance upgrades to its suite of e-discovery products, which is composed of its on-premise products CloudNine Explore, LAW and Concordance, and its cloud-based Review.

The Houston-based company also announced a new product for release later this year, which it will preview at ILTACON.

According to today’s announcement:

  • CloudNine Explore 7.2, a tool for early case assessment, has been upgraded with a multi-core, multi-threaded processing capability across multiple machines to make it significantly faster and more scalable for larger projects. The product also now connects more seamlessly with the LAW pre-discovery production software to enable greater organization and data export options, the company said.
  • CloudNine LAW 7.2, a tool for data importing and exporting, now has more controls for organizing data and its Turbo Import feature now imports and analyzes data 73% faster than in the prior version.
  • CloudNine Concordance Desktop 1.07, a tool for document review, now has 70% faster import speeds, the company says, and also adds administrator tools, improves document and email text extraction, and provides new organization and management functionality to optimize both database and unstructured data. Also on view at ILTA will be forthcoming viewer and redaction capabilities.
  • CloudNine Review 2019, the company’s cloud-based review platform, has been enhanced to improve speed, performance and user experience, the company says. Also in the works for the product are new family tagging and field grouping features.

The new product, called Office 365 Connector, will extract data from Office 365 and automatically load it into CloudNine Explore. It will be released later this year, the company said.

In May, CloudNine named a new CEO, Tony Caputo, who had previously held executive positions at e-discovery companies Recommind, CaseCentral and as CEO of Omnivere. Over the coming year, he said, the company is looking to significantly expand its partner network and expand its sales among corporate law departments.

At ILTACON, you will be able to find CloudNine in booth 624. Also, Doug Austin, vice president of products/services and author of the eDiscovery Daily Blog, will be speaking at the conference’s Litigation Support Day on Wednesday, Aug. 21, and will present a program on predictive coding processes on Thursday, Aug. 22.
