eDiscovery (Software and Services): A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – eDiscovery software and services have become necessary tools for enterprises aiming to resourcefully respond to legal, regulatory and investigational requirements. Aggravated by ever-growing volumes of electronically stored information (ESI), enterprises are facing mounting challenges in collection, review and storing of digital data for use in litigation, regulatory and investigation processes. Massive increases in electronic business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) communication, growing use of smartphones, tablets and other Internet-enabled systems for enterprise communication, and rising importance of big data in day-to-day business operations are driving ESI volumes in enterprise environments. The data explosion is creating challenges for enterprise IT and legal departments to efficiently handle and manage data for use in active litigation and/or internal investigations. Enterprises of all sizes, including large companies, MNCs, and small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are feeling the need for eDiscovery software and services. Additionally, the growing number of criminal investigations and civil litigations embroiling enterprise operations, along with the need for internal investigations for compliance and regulatory purposes, will pressurize enterprises to prioritize deployment of eDiscovery software and services.

Digital data is ideally suitable for investigational purposes and is a major factor fuelling wider adoption of the eDiscovery concept. Digital data can be searched and explored with ease as compared to paper documents. The market is witnessing strong demand for eDiscovery services, primarily in the core verticals of collection, processing, reviewing, and professional consulting. The market is also experiencing steady demand for software solutions, especially cloud-based solutions and hosted licensing.
