 In recent years, the amount of data handled by companies has increased rapidly, and along with this, the amount of data that should be investigated in the discovery process has become enormous.In order to find the necessary information in a limited time from a huge amount of data, it is indispensable to utilize tools such as AI, but on the other hand, the rules of the company that owns the data, the convenience of business execution, and the intention In reality, there may be problems in submitting data at the time of discovery due to various circumstances such as the intention of the decision maker and the situation of the data storage environment that is used on a daily basis.On the other hand, FRONTEO's KIBIT Automator can analyze data stored outside the FRONTEO environment by using the interconnection function, and can meet the diverse needs of client companies.


 Through the development and provision of advanced AI solutions, FRONTEO will continue to contribute to reducing and improving the efficiency of corporate proceedings in international proceedings and realizing the fairness of the information society.
