Every general counsel, managing partner, corporate attorney, administrator, claims manager, or compliance manager has a particular analytic report that they use to help them direct the company forward.
Electronic Discovery, a.k.a. eDiscovery, is the process of collecting electronic data with the purpose of using it as evidence in a legal case. With today’s growing integration of technology into the business work process, what constitutes relevant data is becoming increasingly harder to manage. Emails, sms, images, calendars, databases, audio files, websites and even computer programs form important data sources that must be considered during forensic data collection.
eDiscovery and Litigation Support Management stories have been increasing in the news lately, but none more so than over the issues that new mobile technology creates. New data sources have created preservation & data collection challenges for organizations involved in litigation. Specifically, the utilization of Smartphone’s and Tablets by their employees, sometimes personally owned and used for business purposes, has created potential eDiscovery exposure & expense.
