Optional Internal Database Minimizes Project Costs by Empowering Administrators and Reducing Required Manpower


iCONECT Development, LLC, a global market leader in producing innovative, intelligent eDiscovery software products and services for the legal industry, announces today the release of a new version of its XERA® Review Platform with optional Embedded Database Technology. This latest product option empowers administrators to easily perform complex tasks and manage millions of documents directly through XERA’s interface, helping minimize costs typically associated with having database administration resources. The new product release provides legal professionals with expanded control over technology options, required resources and associated long-term project costs.    

“XERA’s new optional embedded database technology provides organizations with an efficient, powerful and cost-effective way to manage complex legal review projects,” states Ian Campbell, iCONECT President. “Because databases are embedded within the review application itself, complex tasks normally requiring advanced DBA skills, training and manpower are minimized, hence reducing time and costs to complete projects. Depending on specific needs, organizations can use the new embedded database technology [powered by Oracle®], or use XERA alongside a client licensed SQL® or Oracle database. Regardless, users have choices, and can now select multiple flavors with XERA.”

Built in HTML5, XERA is an intuitive, multi-browser, hosted eDiscovery review platform built to optimize the review, analysis and production of electronically stored information (ESI). Operating on a SQL or Oracle® database, XERA empowers legal teams to maximize productivity through its easy to navigate interface, enhanced social collaboration and remote accessibility features. XERA provides legal professionals with unprecedented control over the entire eDiscovery review process.

Campbell continues, “Law firms, legal departments and hosting providers can easily manage millions of documents, create multiple indexes and scale accordingly using familiar, proven database technologies directly through XERA’s interface, while simultaneously minimizing risk associated to integrating questionable proprietary databases. This latest product release marks another industry-leading milestone in a long line of creating intelligent, innovative software solutions for legal professionals.”
