Awards recognize Kroll Ontrack’s innovative nearline technology as an effective means of reducing data volumes and costs

MINNEAPOLIS – October 15, 2015 – Kroll Ontrack today announced it received the 2015 Relativity Innovation Award for Best Service Provider Solution and was voted winner of the Community Choice Solution award from more than 4000 Relativity community votes cast.

“We are honored to win the Relativity Innovation Award for the integration of our proprietary nearline technology into our offering of Relativity,” said Mark Williams, CEO, Kroll Ontrack. “With the goal of empowering a more focused, cost-effective review by setting aside non-critical data on demand, this award demonstrates the proven impact nearline technology has on controlling data volumes and reducing ediscovery costs.”

Kroll Ontrack’s integration of nearline technology into Relativity directly addresses the market demand for innovative, cost-cutting technologies. With nearline storage at 50 percent of active storage cost, organizations can really cut their overall ediscovery hosting charges. Further, setting aside non-critical data into nearline storage declutters the active workspace, empowering users to hone in on the most critical documents, and sooner.

The Relativity Innovation Awards celebrate and showcase the best custom solutions created by the Relativity community. Judges selected solutions that use various application integration points to display a full use of the Relativity APIs to streamline processes, solve complex workflow needs, and create an altogether new solution that positively impacts their business strategy. The Relativity community voted for their favorite innovation in the first-ever Community Choice Solution category.

“Nearline technology has paved the way for our clients to maintain a more nimble workspace and control costs,” adds Wendy King, product director, Kroll Ontrack. “Kroll Ontrack is thrilled beyond measure to be recognized by kCura for our efforts to help clients navigate complex data challenges more effectively within Relativity.”
