• Bright Spots in Summer - Update from Team Optimum
    July 31, 2020


    Our spirits are high with many summer bright spots to report from Team Optimum.  After meeting with many of you over the last several months, we increasingly hear about the cost and complexity of remote data preservation and collections. Add in other obligations around the chain of custody and transferring data to partners for the heavy lifting and it becomes clear there must be a better way. 

    In response, we’re excited to announce two new products: Optimum DataNavigator for user-driven ESI preservation and forensic collections; and OptimumServiceBridge to automatically deliver the evidence to a partner's network.  

    We are pleased to share that Optimum's platform value is resonating, with recent wins in higher education, insurance, defense, and energy sectors.  From case management to automation of tricky enterprise data and eDiscovery, Optimum is gaining traction. To support this growth, we have expanded the role of our advisory board. We recently held our first global Zoom meeting to brainstorm with industry experts on solutions for the emerging needs of our clients. 

    Lastly, we are proud to announce that we made some new friends.  In the past month, we announced Optimum's cloud-based forensic capabilities with Office365, Slack, and Google Vault; along with integrations with RelativityOne for user-managed eDiscovery.  We are automating workflows across the EDRM so users don't need to be experts in those critical applications. 
     
    As always, we love your feedback, big or small. Feel free to drop me a note anytime.  We look forward to evolving our work with you in new and optimum ways.
