Gartner: eDiscovery can save companies 25% on collection processes

by | Sep 23, 2009

eDiscovery is expected to help companies cut costs with the collection processOf all the benefits of enterprise content management, eDiscovery in particular is becoming an important resource for companies – especially for firms in the legal and government sector – reported a recent study from Gartner.

The study found that, by the end of 2012, companies that fully document their search processes in eDiscovery will save 25 percent on their collection processes.

In addition, Gartner projected that lawyers and technologists will use a customary means of recording search processes in eDiscovery.

"Addressing the ongoing challenge of the IT perspective of litigation management demands both that the technologies be acquired and that procedures for using them be established," said Whit Andrews, vice president and distinguished analyst at Gartner. "Companies need to own the products that will be necessary for them to address litigation and understand that those products will not have the same positive impact unless they are supported by repeatable, effective, systemic processes for lawyers and IT to follow."

Enterprise content management firm EMC recently increased its presence in this emerging market by acquiring Kazeon Systems, a privately held eDiscovery software provider, which added archiving, compliance and eDiscovery services to EMC”s SourceOne suite.ADNFCR-1861-ID-19373585-ADNFCR
