Combating Data Challenges: RelativityOne Government To Enable EPA to Process FOIA Requests
In the dynamic evolution of digital transformation, data-driven insights and related decision-making in the public sector have grown exponentially. Data analytics plays an integral part and for any business to flourish and achieve its goals, a unique data-driven approach is key.
Today, organizations heavily depend on insights to streamline workflow and take their operations to the next level. And so, most companies are depending on AI-powered cloud solutions for better data management and e-discovery work.
In a major move, Relativity and Deloitte & Touche LLP, a subsidiary of Deloitte LLP announced that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has deployed Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) authorized SaaS platform, RelativityOne Government, as its cloud solution for Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.
Relativity, a global legal technology company, with the support of Deloitte, a market-leading provider of litigation support and e-discovery services, helped facilitate the agency’s migration to RelativityOne Government. This move to RelativityOne Government provides the EPA with the security, flexibility, and extensibility of the cloud-based data discovery product powered by AI.
Doug Cowan, Managing Director, of Government Sales at Relativity explained the brand’s advanced AI capabilities empower teams at the EPA to spend less time combing through mountains of data and instead, focus more on collaborating and gleaning insights from analytics.
“The EPA is able to use the information to guide courses of action for their litigation matters or FOIA requests, which is additive to the litigation and e-discovery matters in which they were already leveraging RelativityOne Government. We look forward to seeing what the EPA will accomplish with a platform built exclusively for the cloud, and hope that it encourages other U.S. government agencies that are contemplating the use of SaaS solutions for their e-discovery work.”
