NEW YORK, NY, July 31, 2017 – TransPerfect Legal Solutions (TLS), the leader in global e-discovery and legal technology and a division of TransPerfect, today announced a partnership with Onna Technologies, an artificial intelligence-based knowledge integrator that uses neural networks to automate the process of collecting and integrating electronically stored information (ESI) from disparate data sources.
The partnership between the two organizations enables TLS's global forensic technicians to utilize Onna's cutting-edge software to collect ESI defensibly from some of the more challenging data sources, including cloud platforms like Slack, JIRA, Confluence, and Zendesk. By partnering with Onna, TLS can offer the same efficient and defensible data acquisition services that clients have come to expect with respect to traditional data sources and apply them to these more tech-forward digital platforms.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with TLS on this initiative," stated Salim Elkhou, Founder & CEO at Onna Technologies. "Their global forensic examiners and laboratories are world-class. Our companies share a simple, but integral vision: as our clients increasingly rely on progressive data environments, it is incumbent upon us to develop and implement technology that keeps apace and bridges any gaps between their business initiatives and operational needs."
Liz Elting, Co-CEO of TransPerfect, stated, "With more than two decades of experience in software development and a keen focus on applying their technologies to ESI, Onna is an ideal partner for TLS. The ability to combine our forensic capabilities with Onna's AI-based software and solutions means that our clients will have access to an impressive set of solutions for navigating ESI collection and preservation."
TransPerfect Co-CEO Phil Shawe continued, "With businesses relying more and more on cloud platforms to house data, executing a sound ESI collection strategy presents an increasingly complex challenge. The TLS and Onna partnership aims to ensure that businesses retain robust ESI search and preservation capabilities while still enjoying the operational efficiencies cloud computing offers."
Onna is a knowledge integrator that uses deep learning to help enterprises connect their data and work smarter. The platform enables enterprise information management through integrations with major services and storage repositories, such as G Suite, Office 365, Dropbox, and Slack. The platform is API centric and has applications built on top of its core to manage data retention policies and eDiscovery.
