Catalyst July 12 Webinar to Explore Best Practices in Faceted Search and Visual Analytics

E-Discovery Experts Demonstrate How to Make Searching for Relevant Information Faster, More Effective and More Defensible

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Jul 10, 2013) - On Friday, July 12, Catalyst Repository Systems -- a pioneer in providing cloud-based technology platforms for global compliance and litigation matters -- will host a free, one-hour webinar, "Faceted Search and Visual Analytics: A Game Changer for E-Discovery Professionals." The session, part of an ongoing webinar series with ILTA, will be taught by two leading e-discovery experts and former litigators from Catalyst: CEO John Tredennick and senior search and analytics consultant Jim Eidelman. 

Smart use of faceted search and visual analytics can dramatically improve the effectiveness of searches in identifying responsive documents and cut review costs. Faceted searching is a technique for filtering information and refining queries based on characteristics or attributes that can be organized in multiple ways, rather than in a single taxonomic order. This allows users to quickly explore a large collection of information by applying multiple filters simultaneously, and generating total and item-level document counts dynamically in real time.

This webinar provides a primer on best practices in using these powerful tools to make search more effective and defensible. The webinar, which begins at noon EDT, will teach participants how to:

  • Protect privilege using law firm and in-house attorney facets and subject lines.
  • Create powerful, complex queries with easy drag-and-drop functionality.
  • Quickly zero in on what happened and what's important by using facets such as author, date and document type.
  • Visually map email patterns and timelines among parties and witnesses.
  • Use facets in conjunction with Predictive Ranking to find the best seed documents and to review samples.
