Often, e-discovery solutions focus on the middle of the electronic discovery reference model (EDRM) and only concern themselves with review and production. Certainly, the majority of e-discovery cost is at the review stage and often the focus is on making that process as efficient as possible. The less you collect then the less you must review. A focus on best practices on the left‐hand side of the EDRM can sow great rewards to be reaped later. Organizations that wait until they are sued before they start preparing for litigation lose no matter what the case outcome is.
Sponsored by Mimecast, this paper from IDC details how e-discovery trends are changing to accommodate more in-house control and key recommendations on building a next-generation solution.
