Legal Hackers is proud to announce a new sustaining partnership with HP IDOL OnDemand (part of HP Big Data). With the assistance of HP IDOL OnDemand, Legal Hackers hopes to continue the international growth of its now several-thousand-members organization.
Legal Hackers and HP IDOL OnDemand recently teamed up on Code the Deal, a three-day hackathon in September of 2014 that challenged participants to create technology that improves the process of negotiating and executing legal transactions. HP IDOL OnDemand and Legal Hackers worldwide will continue to leverage the IDOL OnDemand API platform to build solutions that improve the law and legal process.
HP IDOL OnDemand and Legal Hackers have also discussed the possibility of additional new programs for Legal Hackers chapters, including additional hackathons to stimulate real solutions and a collective “summit” of the international legal innovation community. HP IDOL OnDemand has also committed to offering custom support to the Legal Hackers community.
HP IDOL OnDemand is an API platform for advanced conceptual and contextual analytics for document indexing, search and analysis. IDOL is an enterprise search solution that is leading in the legal industry and offers over 500 analytical functions for indexing, search and analysis of unstructured data, of which currently 35 functions are already available via the IDOL OnDemand API platform, while new functions are made available continuously.
