Use Cases for Document Analytics
Analytics on MultiLingual Documents

An International law company had a large volume of data (more than 500 GB approx.)  with documents in both English and Korean. The company sought a solution that could identify duplicate files in both languages without erasing important data.

The solution involved concept searching and near-duplicate recognition of documents written in foreign languages which provide information about data with filtering. Technology Assisted Review (TAR) was used in a multilingual review along with an analytics engine that supports foreign languages. 

Voluminous document management

A firm involved with the lawsuit had data that was gathered and only partially processed before it went idle for more than three years. The team preferred to use the partially processed data when the case became active again. Nearly 18,000 documents had to be examined in one week.

Data such as the document’s title, author, creation and modified dates, etc., were absent from the documents that had not yet been analyzed. The team was unable to filter them as they had not been processed earlier.


The analytics tools assisted the law firm by finding topics on which reviewers may focus. The solution analyzes document content based on specific phrases and compares document content based on the degree of similarity. They identified and grouped related messages and suppressed those containing duplicate content.

Document classification using Analytics

In response to a summons regarding one of its clients’ fraudulent behavior, the bank had to submit details on everybody connected to the bank. Nearly 2.2 million documents of client data, mostly emails, were with the bank. The bank was required to categorize the data accordingly.

Entity analytics were used as part of the solution to identify and group individuals, organizations, email domains, and email threads. The bank could quickly visualize the data and group information on each outlying client using this analytical technique.

Benefits of Document Analytics
