Description

Nick Robertson is VP of Product Marketing at kCura. I saw him at Legaltech, and took the opportunity to ask him about two subjects which are important to kCura – the concept of Relativity as a platform, and kCura's Academic Partner Program. On the subject of Relativity as a platform, Nick Robertson emphasises that Relativity is not just a shrink-wrapped solution but something which third-party developers can extend. Service providers and law firms can supplement native functions with the things which work for them. This, he says, allows them to ask “How do we solve this problem?”, confident that the platform can be adapted to their needs. Among other benefits, this allows applications to be packaged and shared. It also contributes to users' ability to apply Relativity to any purpose, including things which have nothing to do with eDiscovery. So far as the Academic Partner Program is concerned, Nick Robertson says that it started with approaches from educational institutions who wanted to introduce eDiscovery learning into their curricula but lacked both software and processes. Nick Robertson explains how the Academic Partner Program fills that gap.
