WASHINGTON, D.C., Aug. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE:FCN) today announced that its Ringtail business has released version 9.2 of its award-winning e-discovery platform. Ringtail 9.2 introduces social network analytics and a pre-configured workspace designed to accelerate the speed and accuracy of early case assessments and investigations. Legal teams can visualize and review social network and communication patterns found in the data. Demonstrations of Ringtail 9.2 will be available at ILTACON from August 14-17, 2017 in booth 431 at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas. "Our commitment to the Ringtail platform has never been stronger," said Sophie Ross, Global Chief Executive Officer of the Technology segment. "Our technology consulting and services teams rely upon Ringtail for the most sophisticated litigations because of its superior analytics, visualizations, predictive coding and continuous active learning capabilities." Bill Adams, a Senior Managing Director and Head of the Ringtail business, added, "No other e-discovery application or application eco-system provides the depth and breadth of analytics that are standard in the Ringtail platform. Our new investigation workspace extends this by introducing a nuanced, interactive way of visualizing both the social network and the communication flow inside document sets. Now, in addition to answering the question 'who knew what, when', legal teams can answer 'who else knew what, when?'" In addition to the new social network visualizations, the investigation workspace includes concept clustering, timeline analysis, keyword search, native file viewing and Ringtail's innovative conditional coding palette. This multi-dimensional view into the data is dynamic, meaning investigators can filter data in one view and have the other views in the workspace instantly represent the filtered selection. "The challenge with investigations is that you don't know what you are looking for and what you don't know," said Skip Walter, Chief Product Officer for Ringtail. "The Ringtail approach to investigations is to merge the exploration and analysis phase with the document review phase. By combining the two traditionally separate processes into one, we accelerate not only the rate and accuracy of relevant fact-finding, but we speed up the decision-making process by legal teams."
