Achieving seamless eDiscovery

Business and litigation go hand in hand in the 21st century. From litigation support personnel to the lawyers themselves, organizations face a common challengehow to streamline processes and procedures to simplify and thoroughly respond to on-going litigation requests. 

This raises many questions: 

  • How do we streamline processes and procedures cost-effectively? 
  • How do we ensure that eDiscovery practitioners and data collection specialists have the tools needed to support the wide scope of collection requirements? 
  • How do we streamline the process of moving data from a preserved or collected state to a review platform in a timely or automated manner?
  • How do we control where our data resides to lessen the risk associated with data transfers between vendors or offcorporate servers?
  • How do we do all of this while reducing manual intervention for eDiscovery products (legal hold tools, data collection tools, review platforms, etc.)?  

The answer to these questions and more is simple – by integrating eDiscovery technologies. 

Consider the eDiscovery Reference model, also known as EDRMwhich requires multiple steps to complete the lifecycle. Then think about how integration and automation can simplify the lifecycle. Without devaluing any of the EDRM steps, reducing the need for manual intervention saves time, increases accuracy, and ultimately standardizes the eDiscovery process by automating the sending of data from a collected state right into a hosted review platform.  

The figure below provides a high-level depiction of how OpenText Seamless eDiscovery does this from a workflow perspective.
