WASHINGTON, March 29, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE:FCN), the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value, today announced that for the sixth consecutive year, its Technology segment has been named to KMWorld magazine’s 100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management list. KMWorld magazine selected FTI Technology for its two innovative software platforms, Ringtail® and RadianceTM, which offer easy-to-use visual analytics for finding important data in investigations, early case assessment (“ECA”) and e-discovery.
“Being named to our list of 100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management is a prestigious designation because it represents the best in innovation, creativity and functionality,” said Sandra Haimila, Editor of KMWorld. “FTI Technology earns this recognition by offering solutions that help users easily find, analyze and share crucial knowledge within the legal, regulatory and investigative context.”
The Radiance visual analytics platform, launched in January 2016, allows organizations to connect, enrich, analyze and visualize millions of documents from disparate sources in a single, elegantly designed user interface. With a powerful search engine and a library of advanced visualizations – including social networking, communication patterns, concept clustering and timelines – Radiance can aid organizations in a number of common use cases, including investigation, early data assessment and the identification of high-risk data such as personally identifiable information (“PII”).
The Ringtail e-discovery platform supports law firms and corporate legal teams of all sizes that are tasked with managing the complexity and scope of today’s global e-discovery. A full-featured platform, Ringtail software processes and culls data, provides a broad range of tools for quick data review and coding and gives users a comprehensive set of redaction and production tools. Ringtail also features world class visual analytics, concept clustering, predictive coding and advanced workflows.
“When FTI Technology introduced the concept of visual analytics for e-discovery more than 10 years ago, its application was still in a nascent stage,” said Patrick Strong, Senior Managing Director in the Technology segment at FTI Consulting. “Today, more and more attorneys, investigators and e-discovery professionals are taking advantage of visual analytics to make sense of large data volumes and find key facts quickly. We are honored that KMWorld magazine has acknowledged FTI Technology’s software innovation for six years running.
FTI Technology has received numerous honors from the legal and IT industries for software innovation, including selection by The National Law Journal, The Legal Intelligencer, The Recorder and CIOReview, as leaders in e-discovery software and services. FTI Technology was also included in the ‘Leaders’ quadrant of Gartner’s ‘Magic Quadrant for E-Discovery Software’ report (Jie Zhang, Garth Landers, May 18, 2015); and Gartner has given the company the highest product score for its Ringtail® e-discovery software in the Legal Review Use Case in Gartner’s ‘Critical Capabilities for E-Discovery’ report (Jie Zhang, Garth Landers, October 6, 2015). Twenty e-discovery software providers were evaluated in the inaugural report, and a complimentary copy is available at the FTI Technology site.

More than 650 offerings from vendors were assessed by the magazines’ judging panel, which consists of editorial colleagues, analysts, system integrators, vendors themselves, line-of-business managers and users.
