eDiscovery Time and Cost Savings
For many organizations, the prospect of collecting and submitting data for pending litigation can prove daunting. But enhancing internal data processes with the right technology brings eDiscovery time and cost savings.”

Messaging Architects, an eMazzanti Technologies Company and eDiscovery technology expert, explains how to generate eDiscovery time and cost savings in a new article. The informative article first poses the scenario of an organization scrambling to respond to a data request without an understanding of what sensitive data exists and where to find it.

The author then explains the difference between structured and unstructured data, asserting that the bulk of relevant eDiscovery data is unstructured. He relates that properly indexed and classified data means that the legal department can quickly find the necessary information.

Thus empowered, staff can mount an agile response to data requests, and inform early case assessment, enhancing eDiscovery time and cost savings. He concludes by explaining how the right technology and experts ease the process of indexing and organizing unstructured data.

“For many organizations, the prospect of collecting and submitting data for pending litigation can prove daunting,” stated Greg Smith, Vice President of Services Delivery at Messaging Architects. “But enhancing internal data processes with the right technology brings eDiscovery time and cost savings.”

Below are a few excerpts from the article, “Tech-driven Internal Data Processes Deliver Significant eDiscovery Time and Cost Savings.”

Critical Internal Data Processes that Streamline Litigation

“For instance, most legal departments do not have a full understanding of the data the organization holds and where it lives. They need to gain this understanding long before a data request arrives. A key step involves taking an inventory of data in the system, developing a map of the types of data, where they are stored and who owns them.”

Early Data Assessments Deliver eDiscovery Time and Cost Savings

“When companies understand the state of their data, they know where the data lives, the quality of the data, who owns it and how to access it. This allows them to mount an agile response to data requests, and it informs early case assessment. With the right data on hand, they can estimate the impact and the cost of full litigation and determine strategy appropriately.”

“Additionally, eDiscovery typically represents the most expensive and time-consuming part of litigation. But if the organization can easily eliminate data not applicable to the case, they significantly reduce the amount of information to process enhancing eDiscovery time and cost savings.”

Harness Technology

“Designing and implementing a comprehensive data governance strategy delivers essential benefits for eDiscovery, compliance, and other business processes. But building the necessary culture and processes is a complex task. Fortunately, technology can help.”
