eTERA Consulting Experts Achieve Highly-Regarded Relativity Infrastructure Specialist Certification

Kristin Sunderman and Hammad Ahmed Recognized for Proficiency in Utilizing eDiscovery Platform

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - March 10, 2016) -   eTERA Consulting, an internationally recognized and award-winning leader in data and technology management, today announced that Kristin Sunderman, Director, Client Delivery System, and Hammad Ahmed, Senior ESI Specialist, recently earned kCura's Relativity Infrastructure Specialist certification.

kCura designed the Relativity Infrastructure Specialist certification for senior system administrators with extensive experience working in the program's back-end on a daily basis. kCura recommends candidates work in the system for at least one year, attend in-person trainings provided by kCura, and participate in online practice quizzes and webinars prior to taking the rigorous exam. Obtaining the certification demonstrates that candidates have expertise in managing infrastructure and SQL performance and have a solid understanding of the Relativity environment, including server roles, server scaling and networking.

"At present, there are almost 100 certified Relativity Infrastructure Specialists in the world," said Jerry Drew, Managing Director of Global Operations at eTERA. "Considering this exam has been available since 2013, having two certified employees is a clear testament to the quality of individuals we have on our team. Our people truly are our best asset."

"Relativity grew immensely over the past several years. It is crucial that we are able to respond directly and quickly to the needs of our clients so all operations run smoothly, seamlessly and quickly. We now have the expertise to frequently assess our databases and address how the system is configured, as opposed to reacting to a situation, after a particular issue arises," continued Drew.

"Earning this coveted certification is no easy feat," said Todd Haley, Vice President of Business Intelligence at eTERA. "We are now able to strategically examine our databases and tackle any issues that may arise without any lag in time - which is always of the essence. We consistently receive client feedback regarding our exceptional client response time, and having two people on staff with this certification only further solidifies that."

A kCura premium hosting partner, eTERA holds a significant number of additional certifications including: Relativity Certified Administrator, Relativity Certified Sales Professional, Relativity Review Specialist, Relativity Analytics Specialist and Relativity Expert. eTERA is also a Blue-level Relativity Best in Service provider.
