The GW Proportionality Initiative brings judges, technologists, and legal experts together to provide structure to the proportionality analysis and shed light on the technological questions that underscore eDiscovery costs and burdens.
Thought Leadership and Industry Trends
In a recent webinar, experts discussed the latest technology and best practices for handling archived data. They also looked at how the accessibility of cloud storage will impact the Courts’ interpretation of proportionality.
Visualizations drive smarter workflows, more efficient classification and better QC so eDiscovery projects stay on time and on budget. Part I of a three-part blog series reviews how data visualizations equip eDiscovery practitioners to take control of a data explosion.
The pandemic has tested us personally, professionally and organizationally. Successfully transitioning to this new reality required certain immediate, practical adjustments that not every employee, leader or company could reasonably make.
As the economic and legal spaces become increasingly globalized—and corporate and law firm teams find themselves mired in cross-border and multi-jurisdictional matters—simplified, universal access to critical case data in the cloud becomes more and more necessary.
In this article in Above the Law, Mike Quartararo, President of the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS), sits down with Chris O’Connor, Bill Belt, and Sue-Deelia Tang from CDS to discuss a hot topic in ediscovery.
While businesses have been showing increasing interest in moving to the cloud over the past few years, many companies have hesitated because of concerns about accessibility, control, security and cost. Today, however, we are seeing a sea change in corporations growing comfort level with cloud technologies.
While many companies have moved at least some of their data to the cloud, others have been more cautious about taking these steps because they want to ensure their data stays in the U.S. Some cloud providers do not have enough locations in the U.S. to enable all data to remain in the country.
As companies and law firms struggle with managing increasing amounts of data, cloud-based solutions are becoming an important option to consider. This year’s CDS Putting Insights Into Practice event had several panels focused on eDiscovery, including one focusing on the benefits of eDiscovery in the cloud. While many companies have moved at least some of their data to the cloud, when it comes to eDiscovery and its workflows there are additional advantages.
Businesses can avoid the issues of restoring and repairing backup tapes for eDiscovery by moving their data to a cloud data repository.
As many companies debate whether moving operations to the cloud is wise, they may not realize they are already utilizing systems that reside in the cloud.
The current of movement into the cloud is flowing fast, and organizations from every sector are joining the rush—including the public sector.
