11 Case Study (HMO) Documents: 212,168 Pages 640,178 Users: 6 (English/Chinese bi-lingual)MT: 250,000 pgs/dayDesigned and executed a tailored workflow to facilitate and manage a cost-effective and efficient reviewdiscovery in the matter exceeds a staggering 50 TB’s of raw data. After early case assessment and pre-process culling, the review is expected to consist of roughly 10 million potentially relevant documents.Alloy provides the client with powerful search and analysis tools within their review platform, to categorize the Chinese corpus based on potential relevance. Experts and Lead Attorneys are assigned to review the most responsive documents right away, while the less-senior reviewers comb through the likely non-responsive set. These tools improve the review’s efficiency and allow the client to define the most informed case strategy early on.
12 Case Study (HMO)Alloy provides state-of-the-art automated litigation services including OCR, Machine Translation, Load File creation, ingestion and database administration in Relativity. We’ve leveraged recent developments in translation technology to allow non-Chinese speaking reviewers to complete a first-pass review, thus narrowing the scope of documents requiring ATA certified human translation, drastically reducing costs and increasing efficiency. The case protocol is as follows.Records are delivered to Alloy on encrypted hard drives, decrypted, backed up, analyzed, OCR’d, Machine Translated, processed (if needed) and then loaded into the client-facing review platform.Alloy provides strategic consulting to plaintiffs and their co-counsel in responding to defendants, defining their ESI Protocol, and working with opposing counsel to define the best filtration criteria in the Identification and Early Case Assessment phases of the discovery.At the onset of the case, Alloy used a sample set of human-translated documents provided by the client to train the translation engine to make the same decisions as their bi-lingual review team, significantly improving the accuracy of its output.As the client receives productions from multiple firms and their respective vendors, there is a large variation in the quality and format of received documents. Depending on the state of the load files, natives, images and metadata, Alloy may provide the client with Tiff or PDF conversion, OCR and/or index building services. Alloy provides access to multiple real-time reports for hot documents, trends, coder progress, and efficiency.12
