“While review tools can empower users to control millions of records, manage multiple users, create critical security layers and potentially integrate with other software, understanding an eDiscovery Review Software’s underlying database structure and the potential to access the data within it is a critical factor,” states Campbell. “It is imperative that law firms and organizations clearly understand eDiscovery Review Software and database features, functions and benefits prior to ‘signing on the dotted line’.”

“Should I Use an External or Embedded Database?” examines the differences and considerations when choosing between databases across four key areas of evaluation:

1.    Administrative Tasks
2.    Links to Other Programs and Tools
3.    Resources Required
4.    Troubleshooting and Support

Obtaining the appropriate eDiscovery Review Software for your firm and working with a vendor that can offer options in choosing the right type of database for your specific needs are critical decisions that can have long term impact upon your eDiscovery projects, organization and clients.
